If you've contemplated, built or painted any figures you will no doubt run across the name of Mike Good. He is the world's best figure sculptor. He is well known for the perfect proportions, excellent faces and natural poses.

Mike's latest work for Ultracast is a Mid-Late War Luftwaffe pilot. Packaged in the typical Ultracast style of a zip lock bag attached with a staple to a card stock backing. In this case the card stock carries a photo of the actual figure painted up from the front. This will be very helpful to the modeler.

The figure itself is molded in light caramel colored resin that is perfectly cast with no bubbles or blemishes anywhere. There are five pieces of resin. The largest is the single piece body with minimal flash between the legs. Clean up will be a breeze. Then there are the two arms with the right one being placed on the hip while the left one looks relaxed at the side. The arms are attached at a natural seam so assembly will be easy. Two heads are included. One head has the flight helmet with goggles. The other one has a billed cap. Either one will be interesting.

The world's best sculptor, flawless resin, easy clean up, a natural pose, perfect proportions, excellent face along with the choice of two heads, you can't ask for more in a figure. The price makes this a great first figure for modelers wanting to practice their painting. This Luftwaffe pilot is another winner from Ultracast.

Highly recommended
