Good looking sculpture. Finding bubbles in the resin of Armor35 models is rare in my experience. Thanks, Roman.

How high is she? 75 mm or smaller? I wonder how the size compares to Masterbox Pin-up girls?

Hermann; this model and Girl with Ribbon are both 75mm high. They are made for 1/35, about 8-9 foot statues for 1/35. 75mm tall works out well for 1/20-1/24 scales if these are painted as figures instead of monuments.

Fred, I agree, the defects are very rare in my experience. But as they were here I need to mention that for honest review. First time in my experience from Armor35 as well.

Roman, that link to the painted figure is wonderful! Where did you find her? Thank you!

I like painting monuments because they were sculpted of metals and stones. Granite, I think I would paint with a variety of grays, using stippling to simulate the texture of the aggregate. Granite can be grey, red, or pink and has a lot of shades but I can not think of ever seeing a statue in the latter.

Metal statues can be beautiful when painted fresh, and especially with an oxidized patina. I think this series of monuments should be very popular.

...defects... were here I need to mention that for honest review.



Absolutely! I am happy that you did. Never hesitate to point out flaws. That helps the modeler as well as the vendor.
