Dragon 1/35 US Marines: Guadalcanal 1942

Set includes four figures
is not often that we get figure sets for the Pacific War. Most of these seem
to concentrate on Europe and North Africa, but here we have a nice one from
Dragon for the first US ground assault of WWII. Guadalcanal was very much a
tough go as both sides were learning how to fight in the jungles and forests
of the Pacific. In particular, the Marines learned that the Japanese were
quite good at camouflage and ambushes so were always wary in their patrols
outside the perimeter. This set shows four of these men, each armed with
something a bit different from each other and carrying the rather minimalist
amount of additional equipment that was the norm, though each seems well
equipped with additional ammunition packs.
Typical of all figure sets, the painting and instruction guide is on the
back of the box and in full color. Gunze and Model Master paint references
are provided. A great set for those who want to model something a bit less
