This is another video presentation of the well known Russian company, run by the master artist Alexey Lucanev. Irbis Miniatures (www.irbis-miniatures.com) produces a lot of resin miniatures mainly in 75mm. Historical characters, legendary personalities and characters from the paintings of great artists. Irbis Miniatures team is a community of artists and sculptors, who love their hobby infinitely. They pay great attention to the quality of miniatures, so all their works are molded from high-quality resin.
Welcome to the world of Irbis-miniatures.com!
The model was sculpted by the well-known artist Victor Voronenko and the Box Art has been painted by Alexey Lucanev.
The kit parts are well protected inside a very hard carton box in clear plastic bags and between black foam. All the pieces are very carefully placed so everything arrives at the modeller in excellent condition. As with all delicate resin parts, we may need to heat the bow a little by using hot water or a hairdryer so as to make it more elastic when we cut the molding blocks from it.
Inside we have 14 parts of the figure and one resin base. The figure’s main parts are six (the main body, the head with the hood, two arms without palms – the right palm is cast together with the arrows and the left is cast together with the bow). The face has excellent sculpting characteristics and the beard is perfect. The rest of the parts are the sword in its case, a bottle, two straps, a small bag with a dagger and three separate arrows. The arrows have a very thin shaft and they need very careful cleaning. It is probably better to keep the tails and use metal hard wire in the same diameter. We also have to add a cord on the bow.
As you can see, all of the parts are very clean without any molding lines or marks. All we have to do is remove the small casting blocks and go directly to painting!
The sculpting and casting characteristics are in the highest level. All of the parts are very clean and they need minimal preparation before gluing and painting. If you have not seen an Irbis miniature from close, it is time to try one from their big range!

This is an Open Box Video Review of the set…

By Mr. Black Publications

This is an Open Box Video Review of the set WW2 US Paratroopers by MJ Miniatures, 1/35 Resin Figures (MJ35003). These figures are the first in 1/35 scale (released also as separate codes: MJ35001 & MJ35002) and of World War Two. From first glance, we can see that the figures poses are realistic and capture the viewers’ attention! Once again Man Jin Kim and his team have done an excellent job in this model.
The kit parts of the two figures are well protected inside a very hard carton box, in two separate plastic bags between foam layers! The first figure consists of 14 parts with two choices for the head, with a helmet or without. The Thompson submachine gun is very well sculpted (cast as one piece with the right arm and palm as the entrenching tool, the Mk.2 “pineapple” fragmentation hand grenade, the Colt .45 automatic pistol case, the water canteen and the helmet. As you can see, all of the parts are very clean without any molding lines or marks. We just have to remove the small casting blocks and go directly to painting! The sculpting and casting characteristics are at the highest level, especially of the face.
The second figure consists also of 14 parts, which are the same gear as the first one, except the M1 Garand rifle which is sculpted together with the right arm and palm and the head. As with the first figure, we can choose a head with a helmet or without.
The facial characteristics of the heads are excellent and offer a very attractive result for both of them.
