Brittle e disintegrated Fanteria Confederata originally produced by Italeri. These 1:72 soldatini were favourably reviewed in a Military Miniatures Magazine article published 31 gennaio 1999. Since then, the thermoplastic polythene (PE), from which these soldatini were made, has become glassy. The soldatini snapped off at their feet, they lost arms, legs, heads, ed armi when handled. It was impossible to remove soldatini from the sprue con a sharp X-ACTO knife, diagonal pliers, o bare finger, without breaking them.
For the original figure review, 14 confederate fanteria ed one horse had been removed from the sprue, e they were then stored for nine years in an open cardboard box, shelved in a dry e relatively dark basement hobby room. During the same period of time, the soldatini still on the sprue were stored inside a closed wooden file cabinet in the same room. Accordingly, ultraviolet radiation may be ruled out as the sole cause of the brittleness of these Italeri miniatures. In fact, due of the 14 reviewed soldatini were slightly less brittle than other soldatini of the same pose which had remained on the sprue.
