|One could say, like actual human beings, 1:350 scale sailor figures used for modeling have undergone an evolution. Early on we had photo-etch versions, but they were flat and two-dimensional. With some CA glue and creativity, you could add some
depth, but they still lacked something. Along came plastic and resin figures which were three-dimensional but they were either a bit overscale or, with the resin versions, very fragile. Many of my resin figures have lost limbs and even their heads while
trying to work with them. Then, with the advent of 3D printing, new figures hit the market. While they offered more of a variety of poses and even some distinction among uniforms for different navies, the medium was very brittle and even more
extremities were lost.
