Recently, Resicast released a set of 4 LRDG figures, one of which came with a Wolseley helmet. To follow on from these releases they have now produced a set of 5 heads with Wolseley helmets that should be of interested to many modellers.
The set was mastered by Gerard Detroeye.
The set comes packed in the standard Resicast format for small items, packed in double zip bags with a paper insert. The insert has an image of the items, product and manufacturers details
The heads/helmets are cast in a light grey resin and were free from damage. A sharp modelling knife/saw will be required to remove the pour plugs and a light file to remove the edges on the helmets.
The set contains 5 separate heads and 5 separate helmets. The helmets are very nicely done and look the part of the real item. The heads are a nice mixture, one comes with goggles, another with goggles and a dust mask in the form of a bandanna, the other 3 are open faced, showing a variety of expressions ranging from happy, inquiring to stern.
The detail on the faces is very well done, and these should paint up very well.
A very useful resource for modellers, the Wolseley was worn widely by British troops abroad during the 1930s and early part of WW2.
The quality and detail is excellent and these offer a nice finishing alternative for any figures in N Africa or the Far East.
Another quality product from Resicast.
Highs: A very useful set of heads and helmets offering a distinctive finish option.Lows: None.Verdict: Highly recommended.
