Having a love hate relationship with Dragon, I will say the M.G. does look great compared to others (Tamiya). One thing that stands out to me as a figure builder is that Dragon got the attachment point for the helmets right, first ones that I have seen attached to the top instead of the lip. No at the edge sanding or reshaping from a close cut. The coat gap seems normal for styrene companies, Tamiya and the earlier Dragon German winter set with long coats had the same problem, don't know why. A bit of filler will take care of it though. I like the look of the Privates but the Officer seems too up right, arrogance maybe? Good pic's and review there Rick. I'll P/U this set just for the 3 troopers and scrap the Officer.

It has been brought to my attention that I have made a small mistake in the review; the LMG is a DP27, NOT the DP28 as stated. Thanks for the heads-up Vladi!
