British Recon Team 1939-1945
|Kit #: 6226||Preview by Rob Haelterman|
come to like these small boxes of Zvezda figures for various reasons.
Two sprues are provided for four multi-part figures, flags and bases.
The boxtop and rear give an idea of what you will be getting and will help assembly. Together with the instructions there will be little doubt about the way these figures assemble. (I've actually tried to imagine ways to assemble them in any other way, and failed.)
Casting and detail is really good, except at the level where the two mold halves meet. In this area some resculpting will be necessary.
as I can tell, these figures have accurate anatomy, gear and uniforms.
It is impossible to tell if they are wearing the early or late ("austerity")
pattern battle dress, as the pockets are not visible due to the equipment
They only thing somewhat less accurate is the name of the set. The Bren Gun looks to be a Mk2, which would limit the set to 1941 or later, while the carriage of the gasmask on the chest would indicate an early war setting. I am not sure when this type of gas mask carrier would have been completely replaced, but I have not found too many pictures of it in 1944.
