Model Description

Comments

“A rather poorly sculpted model, except perhaps for his dog “Willie”, and I have made some additions to that (including his ‘willy‘ and balls, which the ‘sculptor’ had rather coyly left off!)
Patton was a truly appalling man ; egotistic, arrogant and insecure – His dyslexia was probably the least of his disabilities, and his dog must have been a great disappointment to him. Ugly and aggressive looking (not unlike his master) but in fact said to be ‘ a coward’, often seen cowering behind his master.
As for the scale of this kit; it is said to be (on the box) 1/16 which would make Patton about seven feet tall! That may have been intentional – I’m sure he liked to think of himself as ‘larger than life’.”
