FIGURE OF THE WEEK #104: Nardi Confederate, 54mm Plastic Circa 1960s

This week’s offering comes from Italian company Nardi. Produced in the ’60s, he was used to represent officers from the American Civil War as well as from the Afrika Korps. With a curious mix of uniform and equipment (note the German belt, holster and canteen and the Civil War kepi and Western revolver) this fighting man would be ready for action no matter what scene you put him in. This guy swivels at the hip and the torsos and legs can be interchanged with other figures in the range. Ya gotta love the ingenious designs they come up with and the way manufactures squeeze every last cent out of a mold. A worthy fellow for our latest FOTW.
