Nice review.

The Sam Browne type belt was just that, a Sam Browne belt. IIRC the Soviets received this as part of the whole Lend-Lease agreement.

Wow! Look at the sculpting on that jacket and the character in that face (of course, the stellar paint job helps)!

It really seems as if figures have entered a new Rennaissance given the amazing high quality of some of these sculpts... Releases from companies such as Alpine, S&T, Tank (etc.) routinely bowl me over with such spectacular product. Even Dragon's new Gen 2 figures are amazing given that they are mass-produced...

I dare say that I will be somewhat intimidated attempting to paint some of these sculpting masterpieces!

Bolshoi speciba, Vinne (okay, so my Russian ain't so good)!!
