can be no doubt that 1/32 scale modelling continues to grow in popularity. Whether the reason is the greater
amount of detail offered, or the failing eyesight of the ageing
modelling population, is not as important as the fact that people are
actually building these kits.
Ultracast has had a long commitment to producing high-quality and versatile WWII pilot figures over tthe years, almost anticipating the boom in this large scale.
Ultracast now continues this series with their newest figure - a 1/32
scale Luftwaffe Fighter Pilot from the mid to late-war period, wearing a winter coat in a relaxed pose, holding a cigarette.
This figure is beautifully sculpted by master modeller Mike Good. Casting is also first
class. All detail is crisply rendered and there is not a single
imperfection to be found anywhere on my sample.
The figure is broken down into five parts - the body, two arms, and two alternate heads. These parts are
connected to their casting blocks via thin resin strips, which makes
cleanup fast and painless.
One of the heads is cast with the M43 Field Service Cap, while the other is wearing a flying helmet.
The pilot is wearing a one-piece flying suit with a turtle-neck jumper beneath and a sheepskin flying jacked on top.
Facial features and fabric drape are very convincing.
Ultracast's newest 1/32 scale Luftwaffe fighter pilot figure will be a welcome
companion to a very wide range of German aircraft from 1943 onward. It will also be a very appealing
subject as a standalone figure or in conversation with another ground crew colleague.
The figure in these photographs was painted by Kevin from Ultracast
