the second of Nemrod's medic figure sets, gives us a solitary soldier
unwrapping a bandage. The pose is a trifle curious: he seems to
be waiting for someone to get hit-or is surveying the scene and
can't make up his mind which casualty to treat first.
medic is carrying his large first aid supply pouch from the unique
suspenders with the large yoke over the upper shoulders and back.
As with Nemrod's previous medic set, this soldier is in action in
June, and has slung through his web belt an overcoat that is either
a woolen melton (note the epaulet) or raincoat. Again, if using
it as a raincoat, carefully remove the epaulet. Eliminating the
coat altogether only requires filling in a small locating hole in
the belt. He also wears the second patter field jacket and HBT trousers
with the large cargo pockets (do not remove the seam along the outside
of the trouser legs; that's a feature of the pants and not a mold
gear includes the M6 gas mask carrier, which can be painted either
a light or dark OD color, a pair of canteens and bandage pouches,
and an M1910 entrenching tool (badly warped in my set).
kit has some of the proportion issues that I found with Nemrod's
previous medic set. The head is small for the figure's body and
I'll probably replace it with a Hornet head. The feet seem similarly
too small, but that would probably be not too noticeable (how many
of us have told our wives, "Nobody's going to be looking at
my shoes"?) The figure as delivered stands about 5'6".
There is an armband and insignia for the 30th ID molded onto the
sleeves, which you can remove if you want to assign him to another
unit with markings from Archer Fine Transfers or Hudson & Allen.
from the relatively minor proportion issues, the figure is nicely
sculpted and casting is accomplished with minimal seams or flash.
this is a very good figure, though you might need to work a bit
on his relationship to other figures in your scene.
