Here's an interesting figure from Rado Miniatures depicting an SS Sturmmann (similar to a lance corporal) of the 25th SS Panzer Grenadier Regiment in Normandy during the summer of 1944. The figure is depicted standing while cradling his rifle. This figure was sculpted by Radek Pituch.
This kit is cast in gray resin and as you can see in this parts image, the kit consists of the torso, choice of head w/helmet or service cap, weapon, canteen, and bayonette. You'll be spending more time painting the distinctive camouflage pattern on the pants and helmet cover than assembling this gem.
My sincere thanks to High Calibre Miniatures for this review sample!
