Counterattack, Soviet Infantry, Summer 1941
WOW! These figures are top-notch, high quality beauties. The set comes in a printed end-opening box. On the front side you see a scene of a young Soviet officer leading his stumbling squad across an open wheat field while under artillery fire, very inspiring to say the least. On the reverse side you’ll find the instructions, sprue charts and a Vallejo color guide. A. Karaschuk did the colorful illustrations.
Inside the box you will find 2 sprues in a light shade of brown. Each figure comes with a selection of equipment, and some of them offer alternate heads, arms and weapons choices. Sculptor A. Gagarin is a true master of his art. The high quality soft plastic makes separating the parts a breeze. The majority of the figure parts follow the part numbers in sequence, making it easier to keep building each figure in a next up order.
My experience with this set was fun, enjoyable and pleasing. The parts fit perfectly and cleaning them up was minimal at best. “Made in the Ukraine” may have set the standard other companies will have to beat when it comes to 1/35 scale figures.
Thanks to Dragon USA, Master Box and IPMS for the review product.
