Ultracast 48213: 1/48 WWII USMC Fighter Pilot -
Gregory 'Pappy' Boyington
|resin. S&h is $7.95 CDN|
This time, Ultracast provides us with a very nicely done 1/48 figure of famous USMC ace Gregory 'Pappy' Boyington. Superbly modeled by Tom Meier, this figure looks just like him. The figure itself is divided into a torso from neck down, two arms, a head and a chin strap piece. No instructions are supplied or needed as one can easily see from the full color build-up just where the parts go. This image can also be used to paint the figure.
As with all Ultracast products, the figure is engineered to be very easy to remove from the pour stubs. Often nothing more involved than a sharp hobby knife is needed.
