Our 12 inch 1:6 scale bronze cold cast resin figurines are as individual as the service personnel they portray. Unlike mass-produced collectibles, our finely sculpted collector figurines are cast and finished one at a time - so each sculpt really is one of a kind. Often 2 years go into an individual sculpture project including over 200 hours of sculpting time. Extensive research and fine sculpting ensures that each subject is historically and physically accurate as possible. Our 12 inch statues are limited edition with individual serial numbers, and are packaged in a high quality color presentation box. Our statues are bronze cold cast resin or ‘bonded bronze’. Our statues will age and darken naturally with time, and can be carefully cleaned with a soft lint free cloth or warm water. DO NOT use abrasive cleaners or detergents. Like any display item, our statues should be handled with care. Our statues often have small parts and can be damaged easily through mishandling. As display pieces, they are recommended for ages 12+. When unpacking our statues please take notice and be very careful unpacking and removing the statue from the box and foam packing material. DO NOT remove the statue by pulling on the protective bag or removing by the body or head. Lift out the statue by firmly holding the base or legs.
