Looks like a decent set.

I am curious. It says Russia 1941.

Not being a expert in uniforms I was wondering if these would translate to later war use or even western front wear?

If anyone could point me to help with this I'd appreciate it.

Thanks Vinnie,

I think I have found a figure to go with my Wespe, the one in the pullover is just the part and will save lots of money over the AM figure that you often see.

Hi Michael,

Sometimes the title is just a title and it is often written before the full
contents of a figure set is developed. In this case, it was a number of years between inception and fruition. In that time Dragon had accepted my suggestion of making some kits a bit multi-pose if possible.

In the case of these StuG crew, the only difference between 1940 and 1945 might have been the field cap and collar insignia. And even then, these could have remained the same. Thus, only the type of ammunition would vary between early and late periods. And of course, painted black,
they easily become Panzer crewmen.

I had made a suggestion that perhaps more text could be added to better describe the content of each kit but so far it hasn't worked out. Perhaps soon?

Cheers,
Ron Volstad

Yes, that would be great!

Ron, where do you have a good all-in-one reference book when doing uniform paintings?

Thanks for the reply and keep up the great work!
