Summary
Hairy Heads, set ARM356002 by Armor35, is a set of five 1/35 resin coverless heads.

Hairy Heads
Sculptress Svetlana Rykunova, artist of several of Armor35's excellent monument models, created the masters for these heads. The heads are flawlessly molded in gray resin.

Each head is attached to its own pour block. Each block is identified by a numeral or Cyrillic character.

The box art is a card label that holds the plastic baggie that heads are packaged in. There are no usage or painting instructions.

Detail
Molded without headgear, these heads have excellent facial detail with well defined eyes, lips, ears and hair. While the heads look similar, each is unique. Their shapes are neither cartoonish nor the elongated thin faces marketed by some figure companies. These heads look authentically natural.

Conclusion
Figure modelers dissatisfied with the noggins of their models now have this new set of excellent natural heads to use for replacement. They have excellent detail and natural shapes.

Recommended.

Please remember to tell Armor35 and retailers that you saw these models here - on Armorama.

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...

Actually I was being semi-serious. The Hornet bald heads have some of the most versatile expressions, but you have to cut off their tops to fit helmets, or head gear, or model your own hair styles. Of course, you could always use them as "baldies".
