WWI planes in 1/16 being issued, this figure might just come in handy! Despite the usual injection plast limitations, this could turn out a real beauty...and Moritz is a great looking dog too!
Well done Miniart!

Cheers

Hi Tao,

From what I understand, the signature is A Kapawyk for Andrey Karaschuk. This person has done many if not all of the box art over the years.

The art work looks more like Werner von Voss, than Manfred von Richthofen. Richthofen had more of a squarish jaw-line. I also count rivets!

Yeah, good one! I was thinking of this pic. Somewhere he packed on quite a few pounds. At least the caption claimed it he was MvR.

I think it's more like a late war photo - he's getting older and fatter .
