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.
There are four large parts to make this very large scale bust (1/4th scale) of arguably one of the most famous Generals in history. Erwin Johannes Eugen Rommel was popularly known as the Desert Fox (Wustenfuchs) and he was the scourge of all of the enemies he faced in World War II on the battlefields. There is a lot of fine detail here which you might expect in such a large scale bust. You can see the ornate shoulder boards of a field marshal as well as his Iron cross on his throat and the medal below that is his award of the Pour le Merite which he won in the First World War. The national symbol of the eagle on the breast pocket of his tunic and officer's cap are just as detailed as are the laurels and cockade on his hat.
