Inside the box; body and other parts are served inside two small zip-lock bags. Parts are cast in grey resin, casting is clean and details are crisp.

Posed kneeling on his right knee to shave his beard; he comes as a full body figure. Head, arms and accessories are given as seperate parts.

  • Head ; Facial details, German typical undercut style haircut and expression for a shaving pose like eyes looking slightly down to the mirror and mouth pulled left when shaving right cheek are well defined.

  • Body ; He wears M40 German Army undershirt - a pocketless, half open-front with four buttons shirt with long sleeves , M40 Panzer Trousers with button fly, two side and two rear pockets with single button flap covers and black leather Marching boots. Cloth folds and wrinkles look natural and well sculpted.

  • Arms ; Posed for shaving with upfolded sleeves. Right hand has a razor and left one with wrist watch is posed to hold the face. Top part of the razor should be scratched with a small rectangular plastic sheet.
