LUFTWAFFE EXPERTEN

Intended as an accessory for Special Hobby’s recent 1/72 Messerschmitt Bf 109E kits, but equally applicable to iterations of this sub-type by other manufacturers, CMK’s two-figure set depicts Luftwaffe pilot Adolf Galland and a mechanic standing by the former’s aircraft.

A PROUD FRENCH TANK CREW

The title of this lovely five-figure set from ICM is slightly misleading, as it comprises what appears to be three military figures (two of which seem to be tank crew – an FCM 36 is depicted on the box artwork) and two children who want to look at the tank.

“SEND A MESSAGE”

Master Box’s German Military Men set is a rather unusual mix, comprising two members of the Wehrmacht Feldgendarmerie (Military Police), one of whom is in dispatch-rider attire, a member of the Signal Corps preparing a cable reel and what appears to be an NCO and a map-reading officer.

GERMAN GROUNDCREW

Builders of German airfield dioramas will find this three-piece resin mechanic figure very useful – it is posed as if walking to/from an aircraft while carrying an open-topped wooden toolbox.

ESSENTIAL BUSINESS

Czech kit and accessory manufacturer AB&K has released a neat instant vignette, in the form of a resin pit-type outhouse and a German soldier who is undertaking ‘essential business’ – both items are available separately (as 35002 and 35003 respectively), the latter with a rather colourful title!
