The latest entry in the =93four figures in a box=94 sets from DML are four=
figures in late war winter uniforms. These include a gebirgsjaeger in whit=
e parka with skis and a Kar 98 carbine; an MG42 gunner in regular winter pa=
rka; a solder in overcoat with Gewehr 43 rifle; and a camouflaged Panzersch=
rek gunner with Soviet-style furashka fur cap. All poses are static.=20
The base of each figure is the normal six parts (head, torso, arms and leg=
s) but most of them also have extra parts for the collar and neck area (sca=
rves) and the skirts of the coats or parkas. No photo-etched parts are prov=
ided so the modeler must come up with slings or in the case of the skis the=
binding straps and runaway straps for the ski poles.=20
Artwork is by an artist named Andrew and is similar to the popular Volstad=
style. Directions are the usual =93stick here and paint like the box art=
=94 type.=20
Overall this is a handy set for anyone doing a winter vehicle and wanting =
a figure to set it off.=20
Thanks to Freddie Leung for the review sample.=20
