KIT: Italeri 1/72 Afrika Korps and 8th Army
KIT #: 6076/6077
PRICE: $11.00 MSRP for each set
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: semi-soft plastic figures


These figures are a continuation of the very popular semi-soft plastic figures that have become increasingly popular amongst the gaming crowd. Unlike previous issues, this one does not have identical frets. Instead, the figures are duplicated on the two frets that are included in each set. The poses range from running figures to those prone and operating weapons. I found it most interesting that the 8th army set includes bagpipe players!

The detail on these figures is actually very good and when painted should be most impressive. There are not any instructions, but a very nicely done color painting guide is provided on the back of each box along with an appropriate selection of Model Master paint references. The painter can also use the box artwork as inspiration for painting these figures.
