German Heads Set Winter #1

by: Vinnie Branigan [ TEACHER ]

introduction
Minitaure Park have a range of figures and parts sets sold under the brand name Yosci, sculpted by well-known sculptor Yoshitaka Hirano.


the set
Included in this set are five heads, all wearing helmets with camouflage covers. Although each face is slightly different, although, obviously as each head is wearing the same headgear, they do look remarkably similar. Each head is also wearing the balaclava beneath the helmet.

Each being so similar is not necessarily a bad thing, it depends on the use you are going to put them. It's useful to have a stock of heads for future projects, and in that case you'd expect some of them to be similar.

Each of the heads come attached to a small pouring block at the base of the neck, and more importantly, a large stub at the top of the helmet. Unfortunately, this is not easy to remove, and does spoil the detail a little once removed. They have tried to place it so that it doesn't spoil any detail, but it still requires removing and sanding smooth in an area where ther is detail, so you must proceed very carefully!

The detail on each of the faces is well sculpted, and will look excellent once painted.


in conclusion
A useful set of heads, that with a bit of work will look quite good. Recommended
SUMMARY
A useful set of generic German heads wearing camouflaged helmets, that will require a bit of work to get the best out of them.
