by: Engin Kayral [ GRAYWOLF ]

B6-35321 Dear John depicts a U.S soldier sitting on the ground and reading a letter from home.
Review

  • Figure comes in standard cardboard box labeled with a photo of the painted figure. Body parts and other small parts are secured inside two transparent zip-lock bags.

  • Casting is clean with no mistakes or air bubbles. Details are crisp and there will be no need for a cleanwork.

  • As always, figure is sculpted in 1/35 scale and cast in resin. It comes with seperate head and arms.

  • Sitting curled up with his arms put on his knees, he is posed to read a letter. He wears OD undershirt, 3rd pattern tropical combat Trousers with trotters inserted into 2nd pattern leather-canvas combined Jungle boots. Wrinkles and folds on the clothing, details like half-loaded cargo pockets, upfolded trotters and boot laces are well defined.

  • Head is given seperately which gives a chance to replace or pose in different positions. Facial features and hair are nicely sculpted.

  • Arms are posed to read a letter or a magazine.

    To create a better scene, some detail parts are added to the kit.
    - M16A1 rifle,
    - Boonie hat
    - Sand bags
    - Printout - Playboy magazine, centerfold, letter and envelope
    Conclusion

    This is a very useful figure with a nice pose for all at rest scenes. He can be displayed in many scenes like next to any vehicle, tent, bunker , trench, etc. Sculpting and casting in standard BRAVO*6 high quality.
