First Look

The latest offering from DML of "four guys in a box" is another set of German Waffen SS troops in Russia, circa 1941-1943. As usual the figures are shown on the box art as stripped of all insignia due to Council of Europe requirements.

These four single figures include a sniper in a camouflaged smock drinking from his canteen; a figure in winter snow suit with MP40 and goggles; a machine gunner at rest with an MG34 resting on his shoulder; and an infantryman in the act of loading a Mauser.

 Each figure consists of six basic parts (head, torso, arms and legs) with a separate collar/hood for the figure in snow gear. A canteen with the cap removed and the Kar 98K with telescopic sight are provided on the main sprue rather than the G and W "boilerplate" Gen2 sprues in the kit. Two drum carriers and two belts of machine gun ammunition are also included on the main sprue.

Directions are of the usual "stick here and paint" variety. Artwork is by Zgonnnik.

Overall, once more German fans have another set of options for posing with a vehicle or painting as a single figure.

Thanks to DML for the review sample.
