    MFCA is only ONE week away, Fri/Sat May 13 & 14 at the Radisson Hotel in Trevose, Pa =)!!

    MFCA SHOW REMINDER | planetFigure | Miniatures

    Without a show in '20 and '21 it has been THREE years since May '19 that we will finally see our friends at the show tables. ...FINALLY!!

    With that, I would like to share some pics of a new 1/9 scale figure we will have at the show. Sculpted by Kaz Tomori, it is a Waffen SS Squad Leader.

    We will also be releasing the 120mm version at a later date.

    Hope to see you at the show,
    regards,

    Hi everyone,
    here's the latest photos. I can say this is my best 1/9 sculpt ever.
    ModelCellar did an amazing job on casting. Hope everyone like it....no, "get it" before it's gone.:)

    Just seeing the thumbnail on the home page and I thought this one's got Kaz written all over it.

    A superb piece. I don't do many WWII Germans these days but I'm very tempted by this one.

    Hi everyone,

    Thanks for all the positive feedback. I'm glad you like it. Kaz did an amazing job sculpting this.

    The price will be $90 USD. I will only have a handful of castings at MFCA. General release will be afterwards until I make the production molds. Probably by mid June. Then it will be available on our website for ordering. Keep watching our website, and of course I will make an announcement here too.

    regards,
    Paul

    I don't build WW2 figures, but wow, this one looks amazing! The resin casting quality looks absolutely superb!

    I really like the pin-to-hole construction as not many resin figures even bother with that fit construction these days and it makes for harder gluing.

    ...update:

    Hi guys,

    Thanks for all your enthusiastic interest =). Like with the Poilu, it hasn't been officially released yet. The few castings I had at MFCA were 'preview' castings. I still need to make the production molds. I hope to have this one ready by the end of the summer/early fall. Currently I am pouring new rubber and refreshing molds that have deteriorated (for pieces for which I have standing/back orders). Once I get past that and get "a little closer to almost being caught up" =), I hope to begin releasing all those MFCA previews. Hang in there and keep watching.

    regards,
    Paul
