Elan13 Miniatures | EL99 German Mechanic WW1 1:32 Scale
Reviewed by Iain Ogilvie
Another useful ground crew figure in 1:32 to accompany all those Wingnut Wings aeroplanes you've all been building.
You have been building, and not just buying, haven't you?
This simple resin figure comprises 5 parts, contained in a self-closing bag, packed in 'bomb proof' plastic boxes with expanded polystyrene nuggets to ensure that the figure arrives undamaged at its destination. Absolutely top marks for packaging!!
Sculpted by Elan13 owner Robert Lane the figure portrays a German ground crew member carrying an oil can - a simple pose that lends itself well to a simple vignette with a suitable airframe.
Casting is clean and detail is excellent, with very straightforward assembly. No pour stubs to be removed and the arms fit neatly in position on their moulded pegs.
No painting instructions are provided apart from the box art - photo's of a painted figure can be seen on the Elan13 Miniatures website.
Another nice figure that will make a nice addition to any suitable airframe.
Our thanks to Robert Lane for the opportunity to review this new figure.
