The chest on that model looks so stupid. If they reduced the size a little bit, it would actually be a great model.

Great paintjob though!

It all comes down to which Barsoom you subscribe to, J. Allen St. John or Frank Frazetta.

The "chest" is rather more @ Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris than any of the "classic" stuff. Anyway. B00b1ez are fine but the face looks a little odd. No fault of the paintjob prolly tho.

Nice work, Michi!  :-*

I knew I should have picked up another set of Barsoomians when TinMan had their sale...  >:(

For some reason the Barsoomian stuff that gets shown fairly rarely is actually source faithfull...

The male here is the 'hero from Earth'. True Martians, being egg-laying mammals (their 'mammal' nature cannot be denied!) are Monotremes just like our platypus: no external genitalia, an extremely unobtrusive cloaca, hence their lack of clothing prejudices.
