Description

Another figure inspired by the Osprey Vanguard series of books, this former troop commander of the 3rd Lancer Regiment has transferred to the 44th Flying Battalion, but retains his M1910 Lancer field tunic with regimental lemon yellow piping, which also appears on his field cap. He has added Air Corps shoulder board badges, and the battalion’s left sleeve patch. He wears field-grey breeches and M1912 leather leggings with ankle boots; and the impractical M1896 officers’ braid waist belt supports a P08 Luger pistol. As an air ‘ace’ with more than 8 ‘kills’ he wears the prestigious Pour le Mérite decoration at the throat and a Prussian pilot’s qualification badge on his left breast.

Sculpted by Nino Pizzichemi in 1/32 scale, this figure is perfect to display with your early-war Wingnut Wings 1/32 aircraft. Box art is by Edward Sage.
