Zvezda 1/72 Soviet Sappers

Here’s another great modelling/wargaming cross-over from Zvezda in the form of a four-man, body armour-clad Soviet sapper team, comprising one soldier armed with a flamethrower, two wielding PPS-43 sub-machine guns (including one about to throw a grenade), while the final trooper carries a Degtyaryov machine gun. As with all such sets in this range, the figures and scenery can be assembled without the need for glue and there is a choice of individual or combined bases. The latter features a wall section with convincing plaster and brick detail, while the smaller pieces have representation of paving stones. Brought together and this set almost makes for an instant vignette.
