German Panzer units are rightly considered one of the major combatants of the Second World War in Europe, with some of the best tanks and tactics. Those that operated and supported those tanks were proud of their achievements & of the public acclaim that followed their victories in 1939 &1940, yet they were not nearly as invincible as some might believe. The better tanks appeared later in the war, but even they were prone to mechanical breakdown & to being disabled by enemy action, so when the tank could no longer move the crew had to bail out and fend for themselves. This set from Caesar seems to reflect that event.

Every figure is dressed in the standard short-waisted, double-breasted Panzer jacket and loose trousers gathered at the ankle over boots. This was meant to be the uniform for when inside a vehicle, but was widely worn at other times as it was both smart & distinctive.

The sculpting is excellent. The clothing all looks natural & well detailed. There is no flash anywhere, and no unwanted plastic, so some of the more complex poses have benefited from the Caesar special mould to achieve a very good and lifelike pose in one piece. However there is some assembly, because the last three figures in the top row and the last in the bottom row have separate right arms. These come on a separate sprue, but the size and shape of the pegs and holes means they only really fit the intended figure, and their pouches help to confirm the match.

This abridged appraisal is supplied care of Plastic Soldier Review.
