Review by Alan McNeilly.

35.5602 Resicast – Soldier at Ease Introduction As featured on the News recently Resicast have releases another British/Commonwealth figure to add to their extensive range of 1/35 scale figures.

P2

The figure was sculpted by Pete Morton, and depicts a soldier standing at ease with his hands in his pockets.  I’m bias here as I like both the Resicast figures and Pete’s figures in general so bear that in mind. The Figure 

Packed in the standard Resicast double Zip bags the figure is cast as a complete figure in light cream resin.  The packing contains a coloured insert depicting the finished figure as a painting reference guide and the details of the manufacturer.

The casting was excellent, with only the pour stubs to remove from his boots and a tiny piece of flash to remove from under one arm.  I could see no damage or cause for concern on the example I received.  The figure depicts a standing soldier in a relaxed pose with his hands in his pockets.  He is wearing Battle Dress Trousers and and ORs flannel shirt with the front pleat and 3 buttons.  Over the shirt he wears a set of braces. 

To complete the uniform he wears anklets and a nice set of ammo boots.  All the pockets and buttons are present and where you would expect to find them.

Unusually the head comes cast to the body and shows the face of a mature soldier with a good head of hair and sporting a moustache.  Both the shirt and trousers have nice detail and natural looking folds and this chap should paint up very easily and offer the modeller a nice natural looking figure suitable for a wide variety is scenes.  He is a one piece figure so after a quick clean up you can paint away.   The figure should be of interest to both figure painters and diorama modellers alike.  Normal precautions apply when working with resin.ConclusionI like this figure, the pose is natural, the detail sharp and accurate and he has very flexible use.  He would make a good prisoner, could be a tanker or infantryman and cold be in almost any theatre of war.This is a no fuss figure that lets you get straight to the enjoyable part, the painting.  He should be very useable for Allied and Axis builders alike. HighsA very useable figure, requiring only the skill of the modeller to complete the picture. Excellent casting with good accurate detail.LowsSome minor surgery would be needed if you wished to change his head.VerdictHighly Recommended.88%P6P7p10P11
