PJ Productions develops an interesting assortment of quality resin aircrew figures and accessories for scale modelers tired of lifeless models. These figures are beautifully cast in resin and are simple to assemble and paint.
This set depicts a typical Luftwaffe F-4F/RF-4E Phantom II pilot with German flightsuit and survival gear. The figure includes two sets of arms so the pilot can be posed holding the flight controls, gesturing, or both. Two heads are included - one with oxygen mask in place and visor down, the other with the O2 mask in place and the visor up. With the variations in this set, you can get two figures and pose them differently to represent the pilot and WSO.
This set also includes a color-printed photo of the painted figure to illustrate the colors and 'look' of the completed pilot, though you can adapt the figure's colors to suit your particular setting.

My sincere thanks to PJ Productions for this review sample!
