Russian Sailors Black Sea Fleet WWII

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!
