    My apologies for lack of communication recently. Here is an update of recent releases in 1/32 from Elan13 Miniatures. I have also attached pics of two RAF figures to be released in Autumn. This will take the total of pilots in 1/48, 1/32 and 1/24 scale up to 44.

    da Vinci kind of fudged the proportions to fit his circle/square theory, too, at least according to my Architectural History teacher!

    Stormer,
    Thanks for getting back to me, I do appreciate it.
    I do take time to measure out proportions when I pose the mannequins prior to sculpting. I also usually use 360 degree photos of me in the pose too. Perhaps I have a big head in proportion to the rest of me  
    I will continue to keep checking proportions when sculpting and look out for the observations you have made. I recently released the 100th Elan13 Miniatures figure hopefully more are right than not.

    Stormer, thank you for the feedback, I would be interested for you to elaborate more on the "off Proportion" of our figures. Anything that helps make the sculpting better is a good thing.

    Its all in the eyes of the beholder I guess...
    In my opinion there is a mismatch between head size and body, skinny legs, poor positioning of arms etc. (,in general).
     
    But again it might just be me
     
    P.s. we've had this discussion on Facebook too Robert

    An interesting observation from Stormer Robert. I’d also like to see why he thinks your figures are not in proportion. I’ve had issues with some of the Z-M offerings but yours have never given me cause to raise an eyebrow, especially that delightful WW1 mechanic!

    Nice! I got mine just a couple weeks ago. Very well done. My only niggle is I wish they made the neck a little longer so the joint line ends up below the collar so it is hidden. As it is, the joint is going to be hard to make smooth.
