Hi Pat,

Yes, he needs a bit of work, the 3rd Infantryman that John posted looks much better although I haven't got him yet.

I believe this one was one of their early figures, so either a price reduction or re-visit might be appropraite.

Great pose though.

I've considered buying this figure but have been put of by the wrong details like the map pocket and the lack of buckles. It's a pity Ultracast don't revisit thsi figure as the action stance is great.

Thanks for the review, Al.

I find it interesting that they've chosen to cast the torso, legs and boot separately - I would have thought it easier to cast these as one.

Anyway, thanks again for the review

Another great review by Al !!!
Once again, it's nice to see another British/Commonwealth infantryman in action, in an attacking stance.
This is one of Ultracast's earliest attempts at figures and they just keep improving.
Cheers
