B6-35322 Rubber Lady
includes two 1/35 scale soldiers - one sitting and other standing with air matresses.
Figures come in companys standard cardboard box labeled with boxart painted by Vladi. Each figures parts are served in three small zip-lock bags; one for body, one for small parts like head, arms and one for the air matresses. All are lumped into a larger one.
Figures are sculpted in clean and details. Casting is very good with no mistakes or excess. There will be no need for a serious cleanwork other than removing casting blocks. Another assembly and ready to prime kit from BRAVO*6.

Both figures wear 3rd pattern tropical combat Trousers with trotters inserted into 2nd pattern leather-canvas combined Jungle boots. A has OD undershirt as B wears 3rd pattern Jacket. Body postures, proportions, cloth folds, wrinkles and details on uniforms are well sculpted and look realistic.
Heads are given as seperate parts that makes replacement possible. Besides nice facial details, facial expressions are very well defined on both figures.
Air Mattress or Pneumatic Mattress, nicknamed as Rubber Lady, was an inflatable, coated fabric mattress, ridged with side panels. Color was in olive green army shade. Its size and shape conformed to the sleeping bag. It often doubled as a float for carrying items across streams and flooded land. Panels, side ridges and valve are well sculpted.
Another unique two figure kit of BRAVO-6. Good poses, clean and crisp details and flawless cast. I think all Nam modelers have a dream to use air matresses on their dioramas.
