First Look

This set is cast in tan resin and consiss of four parts - main torso, two arms and head. The image on the right is from the Barracuda Studios website showing how the figure looks assembled before painting. This figure is perfect to stand next to your 1/48 late-war Spitfire, Tempest, Typhoon, Meteor, Mosquito, etc. Get one for your next Fighter Command project!
