Heller released several small (3-4 figures or people with animals) sets of 1/35 Second World War French soldiers in the 1970s. This is a trio of Chasseurs-Alpins, the elite of the French army. They feature clean molding and good detail.

These kits were some of the worst molding, next to Italeri's figures, that I can recall from the 70s-90s. The heads were bug-eyed and usually had large ears and/or lips. Unless the folks at Heller have revisited the molds considerably then make sure Hornet heads are available for them before making a purchase. The figures also suffer from Heller's strange breakdown of the parts. Their choice of subject matter was, however, outstanding.
