This appears to be the first of a series of busts in 1/16 scale. As such, it is a perfect first figure as it comprises but three parts, the upper torso section, a head and the rifle end. The casting is just superb and one has to really look hard to even find a mold seam. There are no instructions or painting guide for none are required. Assembly is intuitive and the box art serves as a painting guide. Those really into period figures will undoubtedly have a reference or two to help out as well.
