1/48 WW1 RFC Observer/Gunner

Sculpted By : Jim Raynor

He is wearing the Fug overboots as per the fighter pilot, as made by Harrods of London. Though this time hes is sporting another popular garment, again supplied by the likes of Harrods and other mens outfitters at the time. The massive fur coat was a must for open cock pit 2 seat aircraft where an observer might have to hang out of it for hours. These were often called gorilla or grizzly coats, as they resembled the animals when wearing them they were in fact made of bearskin or alpaca or similar thick long fur.
These often came in a variety of colours and would often include variations on one garment such as stripes or patches . His helmet is the RFC MKI non coweled type and sports shearling mittens designed with three fingers, in order to operate radios or 303 machine guns.
