KIT: Italeri 1/72 German and Russian WWII figures
KIT #: 6068/6069
PRICE: $10.00 MSRP
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: semi-soft plastic figures

These figures are a continuation of the very popular semi-soft plastic figures that have become increasingly popular amongst the gaming crowd. There are three identical frets in each set, providing figures of various poses. What we have here are a set of German Elite Troops (actually SS, but it isn't politically wise to put that on the box). The other are Russian Infantry in Winter dress.

As with many of these, there are three identical sprues of figures, providing a variety poses for any diorama or war gaming board. (Russian figures on the left in the image)

The detail on these figures is actually very good and when painted should be most impressive. There are not any instructions, but a very nicely done color painting guide is provided on the back of each box along with an appropriate selection of Model Master paint references. The painter can also use the box artwork as inspiration for painting these figures.
