about the figure
Resistance during World War II occurred in every occupied country by a variety of means, ranging from non-cooperation, disinformation and propaganda to hiding crashed pilots and even to outright warfare and the recapturing of towns. Resistance movements are sometimes also referred to as the underground
Among the most notable resistance movements were the Yugoslav Partisans (the largest resistance movement in World War II), Polish Home Army, French Forces of the Interior, Italian CLN, Norwegian Resistance, Greek Resistance, Dutch Resistance and of course Soviet Guerillas.
The Soviet partisans were members of a resistance movement which fought a guerrilla war against the Axis occupation of the Soviet Union during the Second World War. The movement was coordinated and controlled by the Soviet government and modeled on that of the Red Army. The primary objective of the guerrilla warfare waged by the Soviet partisan units was the disruption of the Eastern Front's German rear, especially road and railroad communications. As in many of resistance units, women were the keystones of the Soviet resistance.
The figure comes well packed in standard Drevo Miniatures dark brown and sand colored 70x100x35 mm cardboard box . The front part of the box shows a photo of figure painted by Igor Kordyukov
which can serve as a simple painting guide. On the other side of the box; website of the company is noted.
The parts are represented with the casting blocks. The main part-body and other parts of figure like arms and accessories are seperately inserted in small plastic zip-lock bags to avoid unexpected damages during transfer.
The figure is sculpted by Igor Kordyukov
and comes in 5 medium grey resin parts. The resin quality is very good and details are very crisp. No air bubbles, excess resin or any casting mistakes on the figure. The junctions between figure parts and casting blocks are well placed and the parts can be easily removed from the blocks with no damage. There will be almost no need for a serious cleanwork.

Very nice sculpted and high quality cast figure for the painters who like to paint female warriors of World War II. In my opinion; it is so nice to represent a female warrior carrying a deadly weapon in one hand and a bunch of Lilac which means love and youthful innocence in other hand.
