Last year I enjoyed reviewing one of sci-fi fantasy girls by Armor35
. This review is a 1940s Russian Tank Girl
, item ARM35908
. This particular sample is 1/35 although Armor35
also makes them in 1/16. This figure was sculpted by Svetlana Rykunova, converted to 3D masters, then cast in resin.
Tank Girl ARM35908
She is packed in Armor35ís traditional small end-opening cardboard box with a photo of the product as the box art. A zip lock baggie contains the parts.
Armor35's casting is very good, crisp with no air pocks, sink marks, visible mold seams, and inconsequential flash. The flash is so wispy as to brush away.
Many pieces are very fine in size.
Tank Girl 35908
consists of five (5) parts:
Rest of the body
PPSh submachine gun
The parts are held to pour blocks with very fine attachments. I easily detached the arms and guns just by bending them off their attachment rods.
Armor35 engineered this figure with precise male-female joints for the arms. They fit without visible seams. The hands fit around the PPSh well.
A picture is worth a 1,000 words so I took lots of photos for you to scrutinize. What I see is crisply sculpted facial, hair, and hand detail. Her pose looks natural, too. The same impressive detail created a uniform, tanker helmet, belts, PPSh submachine gun, and pistol holster.
None. It is a simple model. Painting should be obvious, too.
1940s Soviet Tank Girl
builds up into an eye-catching figure. She can be incorporated into a "what-if" diorama - the Red Army did employ female soldiers in various functions. Or she can be enjoyed on her own.
I am impressed the high quality casting and excellent detail. The inconsequential flash does not disturb me.
I think Tank Girl 35908
will build into a fun and attention-grabbing figure. Recommended.
