The Other Half of the Team

Well, Illya is a little less flamboyant. The art on the front page of the model sheet makes him
look a little more serious-minded than the illo for Napoleon Solo. The spy seen here definitely knows how to use that gun, and he's on the alert.

You'll notice the cleverness of Aurora the model company (or was it MGM?) in simply labeling each kit "The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Napoleon Solo" and "The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Illya Kuryakin." Which is "The Man," and which is the sidekick?

The answer would be, "Yes."
