My colleague from the GROM military unit started producing statuettes for the thirtieth birthday of GROM.

I persuaded him to produce also in 1:35 scale. I cannot reveal any further plans, but there will be more figures. This is the first faithful copy of my friend painted by me.

Looking good.

Resin? Any additional details? Are the figures going to be produced?

Maki- yes, it's a resin figurine. I haven't used any extras. There are to be 13 figures - GROM operators, diver, sniper ...

Looking really good. If it is a company and your friend is selling the figures, perhaps we can do a news story for some extra publicity on Armorama?

Let me know via PM please.

Looks good! Is it me, or does the proportions look a bit squat "Wargaming Hero size?" Or is that just the camera angle?

Trisaw- I also have the impression that the figurine is too massive. Powerful guy. I told my fellow producer about my feelings, but ... the final product was created
EDIT- Maybe the view "from the front" is a bit distorted.

Not so much "too massive," but too short. The M4, NVGs, and AT-4 look too large for the figure, hence I wondered if it was some Wargaming figure where the proportions are purposefully squat.

I built many 1/35 resin and plastic figures and the weapons are not that large, even if the figure is supposed to be a teenage soldier.

I mean it looks really good, but is it really to 1/35 scale?

I am 100% sure that it is 1/35. Indeed the AT4 from Bronco or Legend are more delicate. The figurine is scaled from a large 20 cm statuette made of metal.

The metal statue's proportions look better. You're correct...maybe it is the angle of the shot that makes the painted figure appear shorter.
