Andrea Miniatures released a new figure in their Eisernes Kreuz line of figures. This time it is not a single figure, but a two figure vignette: Der Adler.
EK16-F005 - Der Adler, 1940
Scale 1/16

EK32-F005 - Der Adler, 1940
Scale 1/32

EK48-F005 - Der Adler, 1940
Scale 1/48

EK72-F005 - Der Adler, 1940
Scale 1/72

The kit is ready to assemble resin and metal kit with the scenic base included. The boxart is painted by Carlos Royo.

These figures have been designed closely following a notorious photograph from the German war magazine “Signal” depicting a “Jagdflieger” (fighter pilot) officer while being rigged by his assistant “Unteroffizier” (NCO) with the Luftwaffe’s one-man life boat issued for single fighter planes . A bagged “Sitzfallschirme” (seat parachute) can be noticed on the floor as the last piece of gear to be assembled onto the pilot just before jumping into his plane and take off.

Interestingly - and arguably- the pilot has been sometimes identified as the great ace Helmut Wick, who was killed in action in November, 1940. Whatever the case, this set can be used effectively representing many archetypical period pilots.
