1/32 WWII USMC Fighter Pilot, Gregory "Pappy" Boyington

Here's a new 1/48 WWII USMC Fighter Pilot of the famous American Pilot  Gregory "Pappy" Boyington from Ultracast.  The unpainted resin figure is very rich in finely crafted detail.  The original master for this figure was sculpted by Tom Meier and the display figure here was painted by Kevin McLaughlin.  This figure inspired by the fantastic painting "Pappy" by Jim Laurier and produced with his permission.

Below is a photo of the unpainted figure.

There is 1 figure in each set.  Clean up is very minimal and the body comes attached to a casting block at the bottom of the feet to avoid any loss of detail and the attachment point to the casting block is very thin.  The detail level and casting quality is flawless.
