Zvezda 1/35 Soviet Tank Hunters with Dogs

KIT #: 3611
PRICE: $16.00 MSRP
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Six figures (three human; three canine)


Now here is an interesting figure set. Not sure where the tank hunters bit comes into play, but there are certainly dogs involved. The three human handlers are in several poses. Two are directly handling their dogs while a third is prone and firing a submachine gun. One of the dogs is unfettered. All three dogs seem to be carrying some sort of pack. Now it looks to me as if they have bombs strapped to them with an electronic or perhaps manual detonation device. If so, this is the first I've heard of such things, but I guess in war one tries about anything. More info on this would be appreciated.

And more info was provided. Visithttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-tank_dog for the story.

Zvezda figures are superbly molded and come with an assembly guide that includes various painting info. You can also get ideas from looking at the box art.
