Finally figures that are neither winter Eastern front nor summer. I can finally make fall and spring 1944 - 45 dioramas. Now for some action figures of US troops in the M43 (late war) uniforms.

Great review, but just one question. Is it me or the angle of the photo? But doesn't his head look a little big for the helmet??

Concur. Otherwise the figures look proportional and well done. One thing I was hoping for is that the models match the artwork which, to me, looks as though a couple figures are very young. These four faces look the same -- middle aged.

World War 2 Combat Uniforms and Insignia: great reference indeed!

Thank you for the comments and feedback guys. I appreciate hearing it. His head does look a little big. I just figured he is a big headed individual.

I just recently started photographing both sides of the sprue to show both sides of all the pieces. What does everyone think about that? I think I will do that with all of my figure reviews from now on.

I use that book all of the time. It is a very handy reference book to have around.
