First Look

The kit consists of 45 parts molded in grey styrene and a brown base. All of the parts are molded very well but a fair amount of flash is present. Detail on the face is first rate and will look good under paint.

A nice decal sheet is provided for the artwork on the uniform and shield. It is well printed and thin.

The instruction/painting sheet is printed well. MiniArt provided paint reference numbers for Vallejo, Testors, Tamiya, Humbrol, Revell and Mr. Color.

This one should go together well as the fit of the main parts is good. MiniArt is continuing to add to their growing line of 1/16th scale historical figures and this one is a nice addition to the set!

Thanks to MRC for the review sample.
