Heya, Martyn,

Good review, buddy!

I'm actually thinking of using these figures in a futuristic armor diorama... What is the quality of the weapons like?

Thanks!

Regards and Aloha,

Johnny B.

Nice review Martyn. Zvezda certainly is coming up with some cool figure sets.
Do the poses match the box art? I noticed on one other newer Zvezda figure kit (Soviet Mountain Infantry) that the actual figures didn't come close to the dynamic box art.
Just curious.

I've started this kit. Good detailing and fit. The poses are just like the ones on the box.

Wow didn't expect that responce. Hi guys. Yeah the figures are exactly like the box. I will have to mention that in the next review. The weapons are good, however the barrels need drilling. But that is nothing.

Hi Charles, your Zvesda review was excellent, a nice review for tips in my next review.
