    Alpine Miniatures recently released a 1/16th scale resin figure, "A Young Grenadier" depicting a young lad in service as a German Grenadier of WWII. This kit is sculpted by the talented Taesung Harmms and the box art painting was done by Calvin Tan.

    The 13 part kit comes well packed in a sturdy green box with all parts separated by zip-lok bags and sandwiched between layers of foam for protection during shipping. The parts show above also include 2 optional heads to choose from.

    Conclusion:
    An excellent kit with minimal seams and clean-up required. Highly detailed with the optional heads both showing a convincing youthful face. Highly recommended.
