Breakfast German Tankers WWII

by: DMD [ DMD ]

I bought this kit today and they look so good that I've already started to paint them. This kit offers two German SS Tankers having their breakfast.

 

The Kit
This kit consist of 2 figures, much like other Verlinden sets. They are a couple of SS-tankers having their breakfast. The poses of these figures are natural and relaxing.To give you an idea; the poses are an officer who\'s drinking from his cup and passing some egg\'s and another who\'s eating with a sandwich on his thigh.As usual I was afraid that the figures would be more like 1/32 scale rather then 1/35 scale. It\'s rare but miracles still happens and those 2 figures looks more like regualar Tamiya figures.The details of the uniforms are magnificent. Mayby the medals are little bit vague but still decent. As for the heads, those are really Verlinden!! super detailled eyebrows,hairstyle and ears.The standard equipment of the German soldier is also included and it got the size like Tamiya. The eyecatcher in this kit is the US helmet with some egg\'s in it. I like rare eyecatchers and this is one of the few you will find.To conclude this set is really nice and I\'m glad we don\'t get giants this time. The price is typical for resin figures. It\'s certainly worth the money but I wish this hobby was cheaper. Unfortunally the handle of my sauce-pan was brooken off... some other X-file i think.

SUMMARY
A good quality, well detailed release with an unusual subject.
