120mm Parachute Regiment Drop Order – 1944.
Model: Parachute Regiment Drop Order – 1944.
Manufacturer: Mitches Military Models
Produced by Mitches Military Models and sculpted by Maurice Corry.. this resin 120mm figure is a work of art. The casting is superb with next to no air bubbles, the sculpting is also stunning so a credit to both involved.
Looking at the parts in the box, you get 10 parts of resin – the head, arms, a leg, rifle, parachute, x2 straps, a hand and the main body/leg bag. As you can see, you receive this kit in a nice strong cardboard box with a photo depicting what the figure looks like, 2 lots of bubble wrap for protection and a ‘sandwich’ bag for the resin parts. Next to no filling required for the main parts, however, the rifle will need a good clean up and some minor work to make good, straps will also need some work but nothing to major.
Casting is first rate in a matt finished off-yellow resin, with small casting lugs that will need minimal clean-up. The figure itself has a casting section to replace the left leg & a largish block under the leg bag, a fine razor saw here will do wonders. The head & hand will need a little more attention when removing, as will the rifle.
Onto the photographs.
