This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.
Verlinden kits are composed of photoetch parts, plaster and/or resin. Working with these materials requires a different skill set than working with standard plastic kits and is recommended for experienced modelers.
Unless otherwise noted, Verlinden buildings include plaster wall parts only. Doors, windows and other accessories must be added separately or scratch-built.
Important! Verlinden's "Ceramic" is a plaster product which will need some work to match the photo provided. Some minor damage and breakage is normal with plaster kits, you should be prepared to repair and resurface the plaster.
This 1/16th scale Chindit comes in fifteen parts of cream resin and the sculpt recreates a "Lance-jack" corporal of this special service force. These men went behind the Japanese front lines to interdict Japanese lines of communication and wreak havoc and fear amongst their enemies. Often surviving for months at a time with no support but airdrops, these soldiers were often very irregular in their appearance and equipment.
This Chindit wears a slant bush hat and carries a Lee Enfield 303 at his shoulder, long sleeves and pants with galoshes over their boots to keep the leeches away this Chindit looks like he is ready to go into battle.
