This is a rubber mould that can be reused hundreds of times. The figures can be painted in the uniforms of 1700-1760 for England, France, Sweden, Prussia and Russia.
The master figures were initially carved out of wood and still retain some features of a wood carving. Many of these were re-made when we moved over to rubber moulds which could produce more rounded figures (Karoliners).
These early flats are quite hard to cast and require more of the detail to be 'painted in' than our more modern series.
This 40mm semi-flat figure is part of a Limber crew formed using this figure and PA36, PA32 and PA38. This semi-flat range was remodelled as more rounded figures. The more rounded equivalent for this figure is PAS956.
