Very thorough and fair review Randy. The biggest issue with this set IMHO is that none of the figures really work together at all. Of the two Germans, one is sort of in action, firing the flare gun, the other is just standing there, so I can't really see them working together in a scene (especially as they are different units). The second Russian appears to be performing some obscure drill movement, rather like a very lax "Port Arms" for weapon inspection. The set seems to almost be for the spares box, unless you have 4 different vehicle dioramas in mind that you want someone to stand around.
