Description

Tommy’s War is the world’s leading range of 1/32 scale model figures.

Cast in dark grey resin, this figure represents a Balloon Observation Officer of the Royal Artillery. The Officer would have been attached to the RFC/RNAS at the time to co-ordinate with the pilots. The figure would work perfectly alongside figure our RFC/RNAS pilot figure TW32037

Sculpted by Nino Pizzichemi, this delightful figure will compliment any of the 1/32 scale aircraft model kits on the market today and is a superb representation of a fascinating group of men, nicknamed the ‘Balloonatics’ due to the hazardous nature of their work.

The figure is shown unpainted, but a painted image will be uploaded to this site as soon as I can.

A colour reference can be found for this figure illustrated in the Osprey Publication British Air Forces 1914-1918 (2) in their Men-at-Arms series (book 351), ISBN 1-84176-002-1
