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

In 1939 the German soldier’s uniform was quite practical and well designed, and included a perfectly reasonable greatcoat. However this unlined garment was designed for winters in northern Europe, and not for the severe cold weather of the Soviet Union, for example, so when the German army found itself in a Russian winter in 1941 it was largely unprepared and suffered terribly.

The field greatcoat worn in 1939 was introduced four years earlier, and would be followed by a new model in 1940 and another two years later. For the purposes of small plastic figures all these models are much the same apart from the larger collar of the 1942 version. Although the difference is subtle at this scale we would say these figures wear pre-1942 greatcoats, and are correctly modelled with the two rows of six buttons down the front of the double-breasted garment.

As we might expect the sculpting is very good on these figures. Weapons are clearly detailed, as are all the paraphernalia these figures carry, while the clothing is realistic and well rendered. There is no flash, so these are well produced and require no preparation before going into service on the tabletop.

Being encumbered by a greatcoat is not the ideal circumstance for battle, but nor is being too cold, so this set provides some worthwhile soldiers not previously produced.

This abridged appraisal is supplied care of Plastic Soldier Review.
