introduction
Woman Collective Farmer, item 35140, is a resin figure of a female Soviet collective farmer of the WWII era. Armor35 focuses on 1/35 models of workers and peasants of The Workers and Peasants Red Army as well as Soviet railroad subjects during The Great Patriotic War of 1941-45. Modellers have identified a void between warriors and civilians and this interesting and versatile figure should be popular in that popular category to help fill that void.

With the growing number of tractors and trolleys and other non-combat subjects, this civilian farmer should find a place in the collection of many modellers.

Woman Collective Farmer
Cast in gray styrene, Woman Collective Farmer is a two-piece figurine - a separate arm and the rest. No bubble pocks, flash, nor molding seams mar this high quality model. Each piece is on a pour block. She is cast with good undercuts and sharp relief detail.

The figure is posed in a manner that suggests that she is tire and sore.

I do not see anything that screams WWII Soviet. Thus, this model offers great versatility of country and era.

assembly
Quick, clean, easy.

detail
Sculptor Anishehenko Dmitriy created this figure with fine detail. The clothes have definite seams and folds.

She wears an apron over a collared shirt and a skirt. Her hair is protected with a scarf. Her apron string features an intricate knot and her headwrap is also shown tied snug. Shoes over low socks are clear to see, too.

Her perky face is nicely sculpted with a shock of hair on her forehead.

Detail is well captured by Armor35's expert casting. It looks like it will be fun to paint.

Armor35 packs this figure in their standard one-piece box. "Box art" is a photo of the assembled and painted model glued over a sepia tone images of equipment and scenes associated with the figure; on the back is an armored train guarded by an anti-aircraft team. Both kit pieces are secured in a zip-loc baggie.

instructions for assembly and painting
There are none. Look at the box art for guidance.

conclusion
Armor35 continues to release interesting and unique subjects. Modellers have identified a void between warriors and civilians and this interesting and versatile figure should be popular in that popular category to help fill that void. This model compliments Armor35's Woman Mechanic, item 35139.

Nothing screams Soviet, thus, this model offers great versatility of country and era.

The figure features excellent sculpting and detail. Excellent casting accentuates the detail.

I see no problems or disappointments. This is another fine model by Armor35 and I can recommend it.

Please mention that you saw this model here - on ARMORAMA.
SUMMARY
Highs: The figure features excellent sculpting and detail. Excellent casting accentuates the detail.

I'm a professional pilot with a degree in art. My first model was an AMT semi dump truck. Then Monogram's Lunar Lander right after the lunar landing. Next, Revell's 1/32 Bf-109G...cried havoc and released the dogs of modeling! My interests--if built before 1900, or after 1955, then I proba...
