I posted this quite awhile back but in my personal campaign to complete ALL of my shelf queens I'm back to my Patton project, Skybows WC 57 with MiniArt's motorcycle & rider dressed in Class A's.
While I've never seen Tamiya's version I'm lumping it with the rest of their figs of that era, "lumps".
It looks like Legend had one and I don't think anybody else did one.
So if anybody has one in their stash and would like to part with it let's work out a deal!

Have a good weekend everybody !

I'm not sure what era you're looking for, but here is a WWI era George Patton: George S Patton 1918

Thanks Jim ! That figure does look nice and would work with my F17 kit. But, I'm looking for a WWII, "Blood & Guts", Patton.
Thanks for the link and I'll keep it in mind for the future.

Is the dynasty figure a genuine re-issue of the Legend one, or a pirate copy?

I believe the Legend one is a re-issue of the Dynasty one. Just like Legend Memphis Belle crew is a re-issue of Corée Production set...

In both cases, Legend has probably bought the molds from the original manufacturer.

Frenchy, thanks for the response! I didn't know about the Masterbox set AND the Dynasty offering gives me another manufacturer's name to search at all the internet vendors.

Thanks Henri-Pierre, interesting to learn! I'd never heard of Dynasty before.

IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE BOX
