The figure was sculpted by Mike Good, and the quality is well up to his superb standards.

The pose is natural and versatile for an aviation diorama, or for use as a standalone display figure.

Casting of my sample is perfect.

A well-painted example of the figure is provided as part of the packaging as a guide to finishing.

This is another excellent addition to Ultracast's growing range of pilot figures.

The figure in these photos was painted by Kevin from Ultracast.

Thanks to Ultracast for the review sample.
