I am in the process of writing a build review of this product and one thing I will say is that the figures go together very well with I believe thus far no filler being needed, but the pictures may show differently.

Darren- nice review, thoroughly comprehensive. I agree this is something of a must-have kit. My only problem is that the quality of the weapons doesn't appear to be as good as that in the Afghanistan Paratroopers box although I suppose they look decent enough.

Karl I don't have any issue with the weapons as they are better than some and not as good as others, however I thought that the MG34 had far more detail than seen in a lot of other offerings with the exception of those that are multi part. Thank you all for taking the time to reply.

Darren,

Thanks for the review, got this set yesterday and I am very impressed. Parachute canopy looks a little thick to me but I'm sure it can be thinned down.

Looking forward to your build review.

This site might be useful too, http://www.fjr2.be/Pagina E-26- German parachutes.htm

Thank you for the comment andy and the link to what looks to be an excellent ref site, I wish I had known about it when I wrote the review.

Hi Darren

Nice review.

Great set.

One very important question where can we purchase this set?

Love to buy it but where?

Thanks.

Cheers

Sean I would have thought this set was now available just about anywhere that carries a reasonable range or stocks Zvezda.
