Background

 

North Star is a Latvian company I first heard of a month or so ago. I placed an order with them and my goods arrived in perfect order in New Zealand within 10 days; so order from them with confidence.

Good pilot figures can be hard to find, and civil ones even more so; therefore it is pleasing to have this figure of a Soviet-era civil pilot figure from North Star. In fact the figure could easily be painted to represent any figure in shirt sleeves and tie with a peaked cap.

My sample figure came enclosed in a two zip-lock plastic bags with a hand written label stating the part number. Other North Star items I have purchased or been sent for review have included a colour printed item header, and I assume non-review examples of this figure normally would too. No painting instructions are supplied, but none are really needed.

The figure is mastered excellently, with good detail and convincing posture. The resin casting is flawless.

 

 

The same figure can also be purchased pre-painted for €14.79 / US$7.70 mounted on a clear base.

 

 

 

Conclusion

 

This superb figure of a civil pilot is convincingly posed and well detailed. The pre-painted option will be welcomed by some who struggle to with finishing small figures.
 I highly recommend it.

Thanks to North Star Models for the review samples.
