Alpine Miniatures is a prolific figure company that creates some nice subjects that work well on their own or as part of a diorama or vignette. In this release, they've created a young NCO from Panzer Abteilung 502 wearing his tanker's overalls and standing with a map and binoculars as if discussing the best path forward with a colleague. The figure set consists of the main torso, two heads (each with a different style of headgear), arms, and hand with folded map.
This is a nice figure to pose with another suitable figure alongside your Tiger I or Panzer III as they pause on their trek into the Soviet Union in 1943.
My sincere thanks to High Calibre Miniatures for this review sample!
