Riich Models recently started producing kits under their own brand name though you can tell they've been producing kits for some time. Here is an interesting subject that hasn't been done quite like this: Road to Victory depicts four of the leading British figures during World War 2. These include:
- Sir Winston Churchill, Prime Minister of Great Britain
- General Bernard Montgomery, Commander of 21st Army Group
- Lt. General Brian Horrocks, Commander of XXX Corps during Operation Market Garden
- Pamela Churchill, daughter-in-law of Winston Churchill
While I'm not sure if Churchill's daugher-in-law accompanied him and his staff into Northern Europe, it is interesting that the kit designers set these four figures into a historical photograph, never mind that the men that are following them are US Army senior staff.
The figures are posed as depicted on the cover art and would make excellent additions to any number of dioramas or vignettes together or individually.
My sincere thanks to Dragon Models USA for this review sample.
