WW2 RUSSIAN INFANTRY
1/32 Scale 8 Figure Set
I saw this set a while back and I hummed and hawed as to whether
I should acquire it. Well now it is mine.There are 8 different poses by 2 so
you get 16 figures. The sculpting is very good and the set is pretty imaginative.
There are four men with helmets and the other four have fur caps plus long coats.
There is a nice selection of arms too, varying from PPSH sub machine gun,
Tokarev rife, Mosin-Nagant rifle, Degtyaryov light Machine gun and a small mortar.
The faces of the men are very sharp and the poses pretty natural. Italera make
Elite German Troops too as an a companion set and there is even an anti-tank
gun set for both sides with servants. This is a great set and it's nice to get
Russians in winter gear for a change. The plastic is hard but much better
than the Hornby Airfix reissues of recent. Oh, and they are actually
made in Italy!
The box is dramatic and depicts "The Russians are coming"!
Box rear with painting guide.
Two of these in the box! They were pretty hard to get
off the sprue. Be careful with that Stanley knife Eugene!
Free from the sprue the 8 poses! Nice!
A lick of paint and they ready to fight for the Motherland!
Fighting a relentless enemy!
Nice coat you got sir!
