Ultracast continues its series of excellent pilot figures with a double release - Luftwaffe Ace Werner Molders in both 1/48 and 1/32 scales.

Molders is depicted in early-war flight gear, most likely around the time of the Battle of Britain. He wears a side cap, jodhpurs, high boots and a yellow life vest over his leather flying jacket. With his hands in his pockets, the resin figure strikes a casual and convincing pose.

The face does bear a commendable likeness to Molders, especially the 1/32 scale offering.

Both scales share essentially the same pose. The 1/32 scale figure is pictured at the top of the page, while the unpainted resin figure to the right is in 1/48 scale.

Casting of my samples is perfect. The 1/48 scale figure is one piece, while the 1/32 scale Molders features a separate head.

Whether you are a 1/48 scale or 1/32 scale Luftwaffe modeller, these figures will come in very handy as accessories for a vignette or a diorama.

Highly Recommended
