Black Dog Models 1:35 British Sniper WWI N°1 Resin Figure #F35216

This kit features one resin 1:35 scale model British soldier holding a 1914 Enfield rifle and a dummy 'Tommy' (these were often made from papier-mâché. The Germans employed snipers first in WWI, often sniper kills were believed to be accidental stray shots until scopes were discovered on the battlefield. A notable figure on the British side was Major Hesketh Hesketh-Prichard, he noticed that some British units were losing up to 5 men a day to enemy sniper fire. He took action at first by using his own money to buy in rifle optics to conduct tests and went on to set up the First Army School of Sniping, Observation, and Scouting in France.

Kit contains 1x figure. Requires some assembly.
