Dragon 1/35 1/35 "Hunting the Partisans" Yugoslavia 1943
KIT #: 6491
PRICE: $13.00 MSRP
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Four Figures


In the box there are three German soldiers from Prinz Eugen, a mountain division that spent the war campaigning against guerillas in the Balkans. The fourth soldier is an Italian, meaning this set offers  versatility to modelers. Each figure is sculpted in combat poses, and they display an assortment of uniforms and weapons. The centerpiece of the set is a machinegun team shooting from a makeshift firing point. Of interest is that the machinegun team members are provided with two sets of legs so they can be posed on either sloped or flat terrain. A ‘plastic rock’ that the prone soldier is leaning on is also contained in the set. As you can see, there are a wide variety of weapons with which to equip the figures.

As is the norm with figure sets, the instructions are printed on the back of the box along with painting instructions in the usual Gunze and Model Master paint references. This set will make a nice change from the norm as rarely are the Balkans a campaign that gets much attention in terms of kits.
