This set from Dragon consists of over 210 parts molded in grey styrene. All of the parts are very well molded and feature great details.
While this set is being sold as a figure kit, you do also receive a full kit of the German 3.7cm Pak 36/37 anti-tank gun. This one really is an instant "diorama in a box"!
The figures are all molded with nice details in their uniforms and great coats and the faces are nicely done. Enough personal equipment is provided to add that extra detail to your diorama setting.
The gun can be built as a 3.7cm Pak 36/37 or as a 4.5cm Pak 184(r). Also included is a Stielgranate 41 rocket for the 3.7cm Pak 36/37.
The box art does show individual crew weapons, but none are provided.
I really like kits like this with both the gun and crew provided in one box. The figures are generic enough to be used with any German equipment be it another field gun or a vehicle.
My sincere thanks to DML for this review sample!
