    Good price, but a little outdated

    The four figures are exactly as you see in the picture. Three running, one in a firing position. You have to glue the limbs, bags etc on. In some ways this allows for greater painting accuracy, though gluing some of the small webbing bags on is perhaps unnecessarily fiddly, even if you enjoy a challenge. The detailing (particularly on the faces and weapons) is exempliary, certainly compared to the revell figures. However when you get twice as many figures in a revell 1:35 set for less than twice the price, you have to question the importance of the detail improvement. My main criticism would have to be that these "modern" infantry are looking quite old now - the webbing and clothing looks like 80s-early 90s US army. The soldiers carry M16s (and M16/M203 GL, an M60 machine gun, and a colt 1911 pistol (now largely replaced by the M4, the M249 SAW, and the M9 Berretta (sp) pistol respectively.) The M47 missile launcher dates them to at least 1995, and the M60 would suggest they are an older mould than this. They also carry a gas mask of sorts, which I think is long outdated in US army usage. I suppose these are minor niggles, and possibly correctable through purchase of the Tamiya US army modern equipment set if you've got that kind of money. This hardly spoiled my enjoyment of the set though I also can't help feeling that they should have Rucksacks, again these are available in the tamiya set mentioned above. I can't compare them to the Dragon kits. I know you get more soldiers in the dragon kits, generally good casting quality, but many complain that their soldiers are rarely doing anything...they seem to be standing around. I would have liked maybe 3 of the 4 Tamiya to be in firing positions, perhaps one running, but I would rather have these Tamiya soldiers running than dragon soldiers doing diddley squat. Overall a good, cheap kit.
