This is a great single figure from Warriors that I really enjoyed putting together.

The resin version of Ernst Barkman is standing in a simple pose that will suit display by itself or in combination with a vehicle.

Inside the box there are four parts in yellow resin. They are well moulded with very clean detail. Casting blocks are easy to remove too, which made cleanup very quick and simple.

Construction was correspondingly straightforward.

When finished, I think that the figure really does look like Barkman judging by the photos I have seen of him.

My only criticism is that, in the Warriors catalogue, one arm of the figure is in front of the figure's body holding a pair of gloves, but the box depicts both hands behind his back. I found that the arm rests more naturally in the forward position.

I can recommend this kit to all armour and figure modellers.
