Alpine Miniatures
Winter Panzer Officer
1:35th Figure Set No. 35036
Alpine Miniatures
Figures scupltered by Taesung Harmms
and painted by Calvin Tan

This figure is a single later war Tank Officer in a relaxed standing pose wearing fleece lined jacket, possibly a custom made item and camouflaged parka trousers with a pair of "Hensoldt" 7 x 56 field glasses around his neck and a Walther P-08 holster on his belt. The figure has the usual choice of two heads with excellent facial features and one wearing a winter fur lined cap and the other a fogage cap.

The full body is cast as one piece with just the heads and arms as separate parts with excellent uniform details including all the pockets, zippers and fabric seams in the right places as well as a nice “bulky” look as the Winter Parka. He wears a pair of woolen gloves with nicely defined details and the details at the sleeve are excellent with the fur lining showing and embossed on the left sleeve is the divisional patch.

There is very little cleanup needed with just the small casting blocks removed and any scar cleaned and the assembly is very straightforward with the fit of the arms being spot on requiring no trimming or filler while the heads also fit neatly into the collar.

As with previous figures I added a small “wire” pin to the neck to go into a hole drilled into the body but again this is a personal thing to make fitting and swapping the heads easy and not a reflection of the fit which is perfect if you just want to glue the chosen head in place.

Another superb figure from Taesung with the "feel" of the uniform giving an air of normality with the fabric creases and fit as well as the casual pose.

Highly recommended
