Joan of Arc figure

  • Does anyone know if either Heller or Airfix marketed a Joan of Arc figure?
    I tried searching using Jeanne D'Arc but all I get is references to the helicopter assualt ship by that name.

    My brain is 57+ years old and not always reliable, but I could have sworn I came across a kit, by Heller I believe, for a Joan of Arc figure, a couple of years or so back while window shopping web hobby shops.

    Can anybody help?

  • I remember a metal figure in 1/32 (54mm) on a horse. Maybe by Andrea or Pegaso. I'll see if I can find some pics.

  • Airfix issued a "Joan of Arc" kit back in 1960 that has seen a few re-issues.
    Heller also had a 1/12 kit out, but might be the same as the airfix kit(who knows?).

    There are also a few other kits of her out there, some resin and based on different movies like "The Messenger".

    Not sure what the availability and price would be for the Airfix kit.

    HTH.
  • The Airfix/Heller Joan of Arc kits are the same except for the banner. One is paper theother, Heller, is a decal.
    Both kits are available via Kitkrazy and retail for about Ten Pounds Sterling.

    Remember, if the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.

  • Jamnett,
    the Airfix 1/12 scale "Joan of Arc" figure was first issued in 1960.
    Do not forget, in smaller scales,
    - 1/72 Italeri 100 Years War French Knights and Foot Soldiers (with Joan of Arc figure) :

    -1/72 Strelets "Army of Joan d'Arc" :

    There must be more, (I think of models made by AP-Waterloo 1815), but unfortunately, I can not show you a link to them.

  • Thanks to all for the information. It seems that I will have to do a little hunting.

  • Ron-FSM did a feature on some Russian artists a while back--you might want to search it out. Although-I felt the Jeanne D'Arc figure was beautiful but inaccurate. I've actually been to her place of birth.
