    how is the umbrella supposed to stay in place ? on the original picture the walking cane is strapped on the suitcase, here : nothing.
    while the whole fig is good, it's details like that that we shouldn't see.
    one could say that we, modellers, could add the detail ... NO : because this is an umbrella, the sculpted folds won't fit any added strap
    i have actually a similar problem with a fig from Nuts Planet ...

    don't get me bad : i'm not bashing the company nor the sculpt, i just say that after all this hard work to get there : such missing detail is unwaited by potential customers.

    Hi Guys

    Certainly good to see a nurse depicted but IMO the sculptor shoukd have stuck to the image :

    Headwear is not like the picture , no bows under her chin as well

    Think it's a walking stick on her case rather than a umbrella

    No waterbottle with the haversack

    With the umbrella it has again my opinion a Mary Poppins feel


    The sculpt is good and well done to the company just wish it was closer to the reference used

    As Mike says it could be a nurse from any army....might look good with the nurse TW released if it was a smaller scale

    Just my thoughts!

    The sculpt on its own is very nice :) and I have no complaints other than the unfixed umbrella . But as Nap wrote, staying closer to the charming original would have elevated it to 100 % :woot: . Nothing can beat the Bayrischer Frauenverein Nr. 1 :love:.

    All very valuable arguments, but personally I like the figure as it is. At last we have a decent female figure in my favorite scale and what is more, she can represent a wide range of nationalities for the first half of the 20th century. Conclusion: I have to get one!

    Cheers,
    Pierre

    BTW I have absolutely nothing against the Bayrischer Frauenverein Nr. 1.:)

    Good female miniatures are few and far between, but while this can stand on its own, I wish it had the character of the photo subject..the mini runs dreadfully close to a Mary poppins clone..could be converted, but the face is not close enough..so, nice but no..

    Funny! I saw Mary Poppins too!
    Nicely done but I do also wonder about the umbrella

    An interesting and fascinating figure. Great to see a female subject and one where there if plenty of scope for the painter. I hope it does well.

    Excellent figure I agree with Nap. I wish the sculptor would have stuck with the picture more. I liked the rounded more innocent look of the pic along with the bows, it gives off a distinct feel that the sculpt fails to capture. For the record it is an excellent sculpt! Soundly based on the picture.

    Mainly it is great to see a female depicted as a human with clothes on. I don't know about you but most of the women I know or have known prefer clothes (and blankets, extra shirts, coats etcetera...they seem to be a bit sensitive to the cold ).

    To put a couple of straps over the brolly should be the work of a couple of minutes. By not fixing the brolly in place, the modeller has a few more options. Personally I would like to see this in 90 & 120mm.

    Agreed ..larger would give more scope..but we are close to rivet counting..it’s a huge thing to have female subjects conveyed with the same respect as male..too many are childish cartoons..your book is wonderful..am right into it ..
