AFTERMARKET REVIEW


CMK #32319 Universal Pilots Heads -- 1:32 Scale

vol_2_image

In this set, CMK provides a set of 12 cast resin human male heads in 1:32 scale with a variety of faces and hairstyles (including two bald heads).  Ethnically, most appear to fall within the European range of human variation.  Facial expressions are all neutral/relaxed and none of the heads possess facial hair, though one does look like he’s indeed sporting a mustache. 

From a sculpting point-of-view, all the heads look excellent with proper, deep detail and correct anatomical proportions.  The former makes them quite amenable to painting with oils (my favorite approach for skin tones).  The latter point is important since in the drawing or sculpting of a face, incorrect proportions are one of the most common mistakes.  Here, everything looks great.

These pilot heads can be used in any time period and added with very little effort to the body of the figure builder’s choice. T hese should come in very handy for anyone doing a diorama, incorporating a pilot figure(s) in any way into their build, or just doing a 1:32 scale figure where a very nicely detailed head is needed - as long as a helmet or other pilot headgear is not needed.   

Many thanks to CMK and Special Hobby for the sample.  You can find them online at: https://www.specialhobby.eu/index.php?cur=2&lang=1& and on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/specialhobby/?fref=ts
