With the introduction of the superb 1/32 scale Wingnut Wings aircraft a few years ago, there was the promise of a complete range of figures to go with the line. These figures have not yet materialised, which is a pity.

Modelkasten is not a firm many would associate figures but this has changed in recent times with their introduction of a range of figures in various scales that have every indication of being in a class of their own.

It helps to have a master sculptor on board and in this case, it is none other than figure master Ichiro Take. Mr Take has a wonderful style and an uncanny sense of anatomy that translates well into his figures.

The figure presented for review is a 1/32 scale five piece resin casting and represents a WWI German pilot in dress uniform.

 

 

The casting quality is outstanding. The figure is part of a larger range of eight figures and of all things a dog, each, is available separately. The series includes mechanics, a seated pilot two other standing pilots and two very well done women in period costume.

I am very impressed with this figure. In my opinion it is one of the best resin figures I have ever seen. The figure is expensive at first glance but is of very high quality. With a little work and in combination with the others in this series would produce a quite outstanding vignette. Modelkasten is notorious for very short runs so if you like these, my advice is purchase them now, because you may not be able to source them when you need them.

Highly Recommended

Thanks to Creative Models Australia for the review sample.
