Happy to combine postage on multiple purchases.

Contents: 33 figures, 2 dinghys & 32 transparent bases
Poses: 12
Material: Plastic
Color: Grey

Cement assembly, paint required (cement & paint not included)

With no actual weapons in the set we must consider the figures against all forms of anti-aircraft guns. The majority of the poses are simply of men holding something in various ways & so are perfectly suitable for gun crews. The man with the rangefinder brings a bit more variety & there is someone clutching a pair of binoculars & so clearly in charge of proceedings. Finally 2 figures in the second row are sitting & are actually on the weapon operating it.

The 2 seated figures are more specific & made us think of the smaller calibre weapons. In particular, they are well suited to the 2cm Flak 30 & the 3.7cm Flak 36/37 (& of course the 4-barrelled Flakvierling 38). This emphasis on smaller calibres seems confirmed by the good number of ammunition magazines supplied with these figures. The 1st item shows 5 small shells in a half-box & looks like 3.7 cm ammunition, while the second curved magazine is 2.0 cm ammo for the Flak 30 & the Flakvierling 38. These magazines are intended for the hands of the figures (though you could substitute larger shells from elsewhere if you chose) & the Flakvierling 38 in particular used vast amounts of ammunition.

There are many aspects to defence from aircraft, but none of them have ever included the use of inflatable dinghys as also provide in this set! Clearly then the pieces in the bottom row are something of a bonus & such things are always useful for the odd seaborne assault.

Abridged appraisal supplied c/o Plastic Soldier Review.
