Nice review Al !!
Have always liked Hornet's variety of head sets and figures but they're hard to find over here in the Colonies !!
it's too bad about the PIAT and carrying case, I've had bad experiences with white metal parts in the past and this would be a strike for me against picking up this set.
Could always use the one from Dragon's Arnhem Paratrooper set or the one from Tamiya's N.W. Europe Universal Carrier kit.
Cheers

Hi John,

I particularly like the Wolf figures, the body proportions are excellent as is the way the uniforms are scupted. They look very natural, not a parade ground or perfect fit look, if you know what I mean. Not keen on white metal things myself but I have a spare PIAT I can use and same detail with the left arm.

I would have more of them bar the cost, as the individual figures retail here at 12.60 which is very expensive. This set cost 19.00 still a lot of money, but I got them about two and a half years ago so they might have been fractionally cheaper then.

The spoilt brasses are the main problem, not east to fix. Still they are a nice set and I assume I was just unlucky with that particular mould.

Cheers

Al
