Thanks for the review Bill,

Still not sure about masterbox myself, for me the poses never quite live up to the boxart - the gear looks great but the figues always seem a bit "wooden".

Just a note about the submachine guns: two of them are the ppd-1934 (one drum, and one box magazine), the other (with the notch) is the ppd-1940. Dont think either of these have been available in plastic till now?

Thank you for the comments guys. I do appreciate the feedback.

Thank you very much for correcting me on the submachine guns John. That explains what I thought was a molding error on Master Box's part. So for all reading this please disregard my comments in my review about the errors on the weapons. I thought they were all PPD 1940Gs. I do appreciate the correction.

Thanks again,

Harv

This is yet another good review of a MasterBox product. One thing I was expecting to see in this kit was for some of the troops to be wearing ankle boots and putties in a mix with the Sapogi boots due to the early war helmets being worn.
