Guard DogsThese resin dogs are packaged in the standard top flap-opening box that Armor 35 uses for their figures. Box art is the painted models superimposed over a sepia tone of a shepherd dog. They resemble German Shepherds. Inside the box the models are packed in a zip-locked baggie.
Casting is crisp. There is no flash nor seams or bubble pocks.
Armor35 also uses these models in sets ARM35106 German soldier with a dog of WWII and ARM35109 Soviet soldier of NKVD with a dog, WWII. See the studio photos at the bottom of this review.
DetailHair of the dog is suggested with ridges. The dogs wear collars with buckle detail. What impresses me are the panting tongues and bared teeth. The paws look good, too.
assembly and painting instructionsNone. The canines are single castings. There are plenty of references for painting available.
conclusionSculpting and casting are very good, as are details.
Hair texture is basic. I plan to texture these pups with a wire brush before painting.
These are good looking resin shepherds. Recommended!
