Finnish and SS Figures

SBS Models 1:35

SBS Models are getting a great reputation for their wonderful idiosyncratic aircraft which are mainly in 1/72, as well as their updates and modification sets in for both aircraft and military vehicles. They also stock another range from Hungarian company The Bodi who produce a quite extensive range of figures in 1/35 and 1/48 scales. The three single figure sets being reviewed here are produced in dark grey resin with some very fine details which will need some very careful painting to pick out. The three are:-

 

Finnish Officer WWII – TB-35147 - The figure is moulded with the body and legs moulded as one part, with the arms moulded separately along with three separate heads, one with a steel helmet, one with a brevet style hat and one bare headed. The figure also comes with what looks like the iconic PPSh sub-machine gun with separate 71 round drum magazine, but is in fact the Suomi KP/-31 from which the PPSh was copied after the Winter War with Finland.

Finnish Tank Crewman WWII – TB-35148 – As with the Finnish Officer figure, this figure comes with body and legs moulded as one piece, the arms are separate and you also get three choices of head, one with  a peaked cap, one with soft tankers helmet, complete with headset and one bare headed.

Waffen SS Mechanic WWII – TB-35152 – Unlike the other figures this one is a bit more, shall we say, dismantled. The legs are separate items, which once joined can be added to the torso. The arms are separate too, as is the single head. The figure comes with a ubiquitous Jerry can which he holds in his right hand using the central handle.

Conclusion

I’ve not come across this series of figures before and at first sight they are really well produced. There is quite a bit of clean-up required to get rid of the thin webs of extraneous resin and the moulding blocks. Once that’s done it’s just down to your patience and steady hand to get the most out of the detail.
