Figures are the easiest way to provide scale to your model. Aerobonus figures are an inexpensive way to add figures to your model.

The latest offering from Aerobonus features a Luftwaffe pilot in flight overall in a relaxed pose waiting for his aircraft. There are four perfectly cast pieces. The breakdown is not what you’d expect. There is the body with one arm cast in place. There is another arm. Of course there is a head too. The unique thing is the separate headset which would be added to the hand.

The instructions are basic drawings with basic colors called out. This is adequate for the modeler but some may find the basic look and dismiss this figure due to that. They would be wrong. The figure is wonderfully sculpted with impressive folds and highlights. The head looks perfect as well. The proportions of the whole thing are perfect for 1/48th scale.

Beautiful sculpting, easy assembly and a nice pose will make this a good first figure for the aircraft modeler and the detail will be a lot of fun for the experienced figure modeler.

Highly recommended
