punched out, matte finished, individuals, standing, walking, Corbusier´s modulor proportion figure (the guy with one arm raised), dog, flat blank format 0.3 x 33 x 103 with figures to be cut free
These small stainless steel silhouette figures are extremely intricate and display amazing detail. Along with people, there is also a dog and the modulor (Le Corbusier´s proportional figure) on the flat blank. In comparison to other silhouette figures made, for example, from plastic or brass, these matte finished, stainless steel figures and objects have an elegant, modern but nonetheless timeless appearance.
Each individual figure comes equipped with a pin that stays with the figure when it is broken away from the frame at the predetermined breaking point, which makes the removal that much easier. A pair of scissors or a small side-cutting pliers are perfect for this work. If the figures are to be attached to a model made from a yielding material like, for example, rigid foam, a small hole should be punched and the pin on the bottom of the figure should be inserted into it. A certain amount of dexterity is required when having to glue the figures to a hard substrate, particularly in the case of the smallest ones; it is best to work with a tweezers while applying the glue (e.g. SUPER GLUE) in very small amounts with a syringe.
The model figures from the company Preiser are produced in architectural model scales and are so incredibly detailed that they actually display personality. This can be clearly seen when viewing the set called "statesmen and women" which includes very recognizable miniature reproductions of the most famous Bavarian Minister President Franz Josef Strauss, the former president of France ValÈry Giscard DEstaings, Queen Elizabeth II herself in all her glory as well as other less prominent but nonetheless impressive suits". The miniature people seem so lifelike because of the very careful and precise painting which was all done by hand.
