Yes, nice review as usual, Squire.

The detail looks a bit soft, but I have been working with a lot of resin figures lately. Dragon have a set of Sd.Kfz.7 riders, but other poses are always nice, especially with Hornet making killer replacement heads and hands.

Is this a new set? I really like the looks of this set, and could be good to have.

Thanks for the review Darren.

I really am very pleased with this figure release and it is one of the best figure sets I have bought of late. It is because I was so pleased I wrote the review.

Nice review Darren,

Since seated figures are not quite that common, this set is great for bringing many open-top (and closed-top) vehicles to life — lots of possibilities — just mix-n-match the limbs.

Note: For some vehicles, you may need to do some Franken-figuring in order for the boots to touch the floor properly. In a Dragon Sd.Kfz.10 build, I actually needed to go a step further and ditch the vehicle's seat-cushions as well. Regardless, this set is a very useful offering from MasterBox.

And yes … designated driver included!
