Those little big shots do look sharp. Shame about the baskets. I suspect P/E would be a better material for those. Of course, that could increase complexity of what seem to be kits created with a simplicity of assembly in mind.

hO train scale!
You may use them as a load for special trains.
I used to travel from Seedorf to Munster shooting range by train.
A complete arti transport would be: 1 (old) person wagon, M578s, M577s and 18 M109(A2)s.
