figure for a vehicle
DML continues its releases of four individual figures in a box which
may be used in different settings, but which do not compose a set that
can be used together. They are a field marshal in normal uniform with
baton, infantryman standing with helmet and cigarette, artilleryman
having a meal from his mess kit, and a soldier standing at rest with
his helmet off. This latter figure is one of the more impressive DML
moldings and one that captures the weariness of German troops in
Russia.
Each figure consists of six parts as is the norm =96 head, torso, arms
and legs =96 and as they are all in =93normal=94 uniforms require no add-on
tails or collars. A set of artillery binoculars is included for use
but the directions do not indicate with which figure!
All positions are static but appear casual and not forced. Artwork
for this set is by Zgonnik and is dated 2009.
Accessories are plentiful but are the usual G and W generic sprues
from DML.
Painting directions are the usual but unfortunate =93stick here and
follow the box art=94 type.
Overall this set, like many other recent DML efforts, provides four
individual figures which are best used as scale representatives next
to single vehicle models.
Thanks to Freddie Leung for the review sample.
