Warriors 1/35 USMC Assault Group (Iwo Jima/Okinawa) Part 3

KIT #: WA35669
PRICE: $24.99 MSRP
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Resin Figures

This next pair of  resin figures from Warriors is another pair of USMC figures such as were typical during the last year of the Pacific war.  Specifically Okinawa and Iwo Jima. The two figures include a full body with separate head, arms, and some equipment. A lot of standard gear is molded onto the body sections, though in this case there are a few bits that would be difficult to mold into the figure. This set depicts one man talking on a portable back pack radio and the other figure is the one carrying the radio. The figure with the handset has his helmet cocked over to one side.

The molding is first rate with no molding glitches at all. Just the usual flash and molding stubs that one gets with resin kits. No instructions per se, but there is a small color image on the container that could be used to help assemble and paint the figure.

Overall, a nice figure set and one that would look good in a diorama or standing alone.
