Charging French Soldier

Charging French Soldier 1917


Nemrod's 75mm scale French Soldier 1917

I reviewed Nemrod's 1/24 scale (75mm) Charging French Soldier 1917 a few weeks ago, and now I have finished this impressive resin figure.

Please note that the photos in the earlier Review were actually those of the box top, in case there was any misunderstanding.

The figure is absolutely wonderful. All the parts went together like a dream. The most difficult aspects of this resin kit were the seam lines down the back of the legs and the back of the lower half of the trench coat where the two halves met. Both these challenges were easily met with a little filling and sanding.

Painting was done with my Testor Aztek airbrush using Tamiya Field Blue for the base colour, then Vallejo acrylics for the remainder of the uniform and equipment. The face was finished with Testor's Model Master enamels.

The base was scratch built using modelling clay and crumbs from a crushed aerated concrete block. Pieces of timber were then pushed in and everything was painted in a flat, dirty earth colour. The barbed wire,  from Verlinden, is a final touch.

Overall, I am very pleased with the end result and I look forward to future Nemrod releases.
