First: Thanks to Aires for providing IPMS USA this figure to review! One of six in this review series, each shows a passion and dedication Aires have to providing the finest resin products. We appreciate your support, with the usual nod to IPMS USA leadership for allowing me to review these figures.
Included with each set are painting instructions in color!
Produced under the Aerobonus branch of Aires, this particular figure, a Russian Colonel from the Korean War era, 1951, has outstanding detail and fidelity; consisting of three resin parts (main body, left and right arm). The figure is wearing standard pants, shirt, and coat for the period. The head and shirt collar with tie are separate, wearing a standard Wheel cap. The left arm is casually in the left pants pocket, and the right arm is at rest, holding a soft flight cap of Soviet issue. The head of the figure appears to be speaking, so its’ a casual conversation verses yelling and screaming at someone, trying to get them to move or do something faster.
