1:16th Figure Set No. 16004
Review by Terry Ashley
The Set:
Alpine Miniatures rreleased this 1:16 figure scupltered by Jorge Scoriaffico with the boxart figure painted by Gino Poppe representing an WWII 82nd Airborne Paratrooper seen shortly after 6 June 1944 and again comes packaged in a stout cardboard box with a couple of pads of soft foam material to firmly hold the zip-locked bags in place reducing the chance of damage in transit.
He wears the Jump-Suit M1942 jacket and trousers over the standard issue woolen shirt with scarf plus gloves along with laced up jump boots. The jacket details are captured extremely well with the four large jacket pockets suitable bulged as they are usually packed with all sorts of useful items. The detail extends to the well defined fabric seams and stitching around the lower flaps as well as the elbow reinforcing panels to the well detailed jacket belt.
The Airborne insignia consists of the US flag on the right shoulder which has the correct seven strips (no I didn't count the stars) and the 82nd AA crest on the left shoulder and these are nicely embossed to allow easy painting in this larger scale. There is one item missing for a D-Day paratrooper and that is the gas-detection armband which would have covered the US flag on the right shoulder and this could be added from tissue is you wished.
