FirstLook

 

MasterCasters' latest 1/32 scale pilot sees their first foray into WWII figures.

This is a 1/32 scale RAAF / Commonwealth Pilot in Tropical Gear.

The figure is broken down into five parts - body and legs as the main section, separate arms, head and slouch hat. One hand is holding a collapsed leather flight helmet, while the other hand is in his pocket. Other nice touches are the webbing for the boots and the well-detailed watch on the left arm, complete with crsiply cast winder, face and buckle!

The head is supplied as a full part, so the slouch hat may be omitted. This is very useful, as the bare headed figure can then be decpicted as an RAF or other Commonwealth pilot in the Western Desert, Meditteranean or SEAC fronts.

 

 

The distinctive Akubra slouch hat will be suitable for RAAF aircrew in the Pacific theatre, the Western Desert or on the home front in Australia.

Detail is excellent, and casting of my sample is perfect. All parts are cast onto a resin "sprue". They should be easy to remove and clean up prior to assembly.

MasterCasters has delivered an original and beautifully executed product that may be used as a stand alone figure or an accessory for RAF and Commonwealth 1/32 scale aircraft.

Thanks to Jay Laverty from MasterCasters for the samples
