Useful & good, relaxed poses. The extras are a real bonus too!

Thanks Darren! Iím planning a Kharkov diorama with the II SS Panzer Korps. Perhaps 2 different Panzer IIIs (G/H and K/M), a Panzer II Ausf F, Sd.kfz. 250/1 spe alte, lots of figures like these and either a pz.kpfw. IV Ausf G or Tiger as the focal point. I have a lot of photos showing the Korps moving across the steppe and into the suburbs and a lot seem to be a causal but cautious advance with a mix of soldiers and the ready and others relaxing on tanks. These figures will be perfect. The subtext Iím shootings for will highlight the diversity of equipment the 3 divisions used at the time and how it was one of the battles that bridged the gap between early war and late war and their dichotomies.

I love the figures and poses provided as they lend themselves to many settings, but I am disappointed in the amount of flash present as cleaning them up while retaining the soft look to the winter clothing may prove problematic.

That is some of the worst flash I have seen in a long time. The good news about clothing is a little putty "feathered" will help cover anything that needs it.
