Adalbertus have announced a finely detailed quarterscale resin figure of the US volunteer in the Polish-Soviet war.

Merian Cooper was also the designer of the Koziousko (did I spelled it correct?) squadron badge

Decent figure. Reasonable price. When Eduard releases their kit with the polish markings of the Kościuszko Squadron this will come in handy. He (at left) and Fauntleroy (at right) were Americans serving with the Polish units post war.

Is this the same Merian C. Cooper who co-wrote and produced "King Kong" in 1932?
