Reviewed in MILITARY MODELLING, May 1997
PiLiPiLi models are produced in Belgium and designed by Le-van Quang. They are cast in polyurethane resin to a very high standard and fit together effortlessly, revealing great care taken during mould production and casting.
The figure can be posed in two ways, straight from the box and without modification; carrying his rifle over his shoulder with his hat in his left hand, or rifle resting butt down on the ground and his hat on his head. This is good kit designing. There are some small sprues left over from the casting sequence to remove from parts. Two areas to look out for are the plug on the hat brim and the flash in the rifle's trigger guard.
Detail on the castings is superb and, add to this the already mentioned ease of assembly, you'll soon realise you have a superior grade model figure in your hands. There is some very fine bead work to paint which will make or mar the finished result, so care is needed.
