Plus Model develops a wide range of products for the 1/35th scale modeler, from complete kits and detail sets, to diorama layouts and accessories. Here is yet another dimension to their creativity, figures.
This set depicts a pair of Russian Black Sea Fleet sailors out on a 'procurement' mission to find food. While one shows off his hunting skills, the other is holding up their new mascott that had left behind by its previous owners. At least I hope it would be a mascott. Does parrot really taste like spotted owl?
These figures are cast in tan resin and the parrot's cage is provided in photo-etch. As you can see in the images, the detailing is nicely done!
