    This is one of the newest releases from Beneito miniatures sculpted by José Hidalgo. The figure is 54mm in scale and is cast in 11 white metal pieces. All parts come protected in a foam lined box for protection during transport. There is an painting guide included with the kit and also some nice colour box art on the out sleeve of the box.

    A close inspection of all the parts shows good quality casting and level of detail. A close up below of the head.

    The upper and lower parts of the torso are cast as two sections, a test fitting shows a good fit.

    A test fitting of the head position shows this figure really starting to come together.

    The right arm and rifle are cast as one section.

    The backpack and equipment shows a large view so the quality of the detail can be seen.

    Another view of the remainder parts, pouches and bags show another close up view.

    Conclusion:
    Another nice release from Beneito. All parts are nicely cast with minimal cleanup of parts and a good level of detail. Highly recommended.

    Hi Marc

    Everything locates very well with no evidence of any filler needed. The two body part lock together quite well.
