First Look

Here's another new figure from Rado Miniatures, this one depicting a British Army soldier circa 1943-45 in the Italian theater. The figure is standing with one hand in his pocket, the other holding your choice of shovel or sledge hammer. The kit provides two choices of head, one with the standard helmet, the other with a service beret. This figure was sculpted by Radek Pituch.

This kit is cast in gray resin and as you can see in this parts image, the kit consists of the torso, two heads, and two tools, each with the hand sculpted in place. You'll be spending more time painting the distinctive camouflage pattern on the pants and helmet cover than assembling this gem.

My sincere thanks to High Calibre Miniatures for this review sample!
