Thanks for the review. Impressive list of accessories.

Does Spades Model will make only big scales ?

Great review, Mario, very thorough and detailed. The fit of the parts looks perfect and you have assembled the figure nicely.

Does the instructions come with any painting color or pattern guide?

Thanks guys.

As far as I know, Spades is considering other scales as well. We will have to wait and see what the future brings, but I don't think they will venture in 1/35.

Pete, no painting guide in the instructions. The boxart shows AOR1 pattern, very similar to digital MARPAT.

Thanks, Mario. Please keep us updated on new releases from SPADES. Seems to be a "breakthrough" in modern 120mm figure marketing and design.

Great review Mario! The figure is very impressive and great detailed! I managed to assemble it in just 30 minutes! Only small problem i faced was the fitting of the right arm on the body, in order to be aligned with the 2 hands holding the gun! But nothing difficult once hold it hard in place! I hope to see more from spades and wish for lower prices!

Assembly is pretty much straightforward, the only thing I had to do some tweaking are the arms... as you said, once the right arm is in place it is easy to fit the hands and the weapon.

BTW, Spades will soon reveal their new figure. Keep your fingers crossed.

Nice pose and gear. Maybe they could simply the packaging and bring the cost down.

Mario these are great news! Give us some more details: 120mm? Modern scheme? When should we expect the release?
I just hope they could reduce the cost!

The press release from Spades will probably be out very soon, so I don't want to spoil the surprise. I do think you will be happy with their choice of the subject though.

The feet look a little small; easy fix though.
