The figure has the full body in one piece with separate left arm (with flag) and left boot, this allows for good detail definition of the boots which would have been compromised if both cast in place, nice attention to detail. Two alternate heads in what is now standard in Alpine figure sets sees one with the Russian leather tankers helmet and the other with an Officers cap.
The figure can be posed outside a vehicle or standing in the Dragon T-34-76 Mod 1940 turret hatch for which the figure is designed.
Uniform details are very well done with crisp well defined details and excellent fabric folds as well as the folds being appropriate for the figure pose with the only cleanup being the usual casting blocks to be removed. Assembly is very straight forward with good fit of the parts after cleanup without any filler needed on any of the joins.
There are no paining instructions included but the subject matter is well known and painting shouldn't be a problem with the colour photos on the box providing a guide.
Another simple yet well detailed figure that can be used on its own or in the turret hatch and the alternate heads allows for some nice variety.Recommended
