little general went AWOL in 2005, and it's a shame that parent company
VLS discontinued him. Of the four renditions of "Old Blood
& Guts" (Custom Dioramics, Dynasty/Legend, Verlinden, and
Tamiya) this one does the best at capturing his facial characteristics.
Along with the bone structure, sculptor Jim Maddox also gets right
Georgie's thrusting lower lip.
accoutrements also nail down this depiction of Patton, presumably
directing traffic during the pus to Bastogne, with good detailing
on custom-designed B3 sheepskin bomber jacket and the two pistols,
appearing to be a Colt .45 revolver and a Smith & Wesson .357
Magnum. The general scales in at about 6'5" with his helmet
on. I'm not sure what Patton's true height was (my few Patton books
do not say, but the Internet Movie Database claims he was 6'1"curiously
the same height as George C. Scott!), but the helmet and weapons
are in line with 1/35 scale.
and Lore never really seemed to get much attention as a product
line. That's a shame, as this figure is on par with the best of
work in resin. For comparison, check out the Pattons from Custom
and Infinity Shape.
