Wow. Verlinden has produced a really nice kit with this vignette. One of the first things I noticed is they have included pant and sleve seems molded into the figure. On other releases I have noticed this little detail was lacking.
What you get with this kit is one full figure of a German running past the rotting remains of a dead Frenchman, circia 1915 -- judging by the German\'s helmet.Molding looks really crisp and clean with some sizable pour blocks that will require some clean up. Overall casting looks great. All equipment is seperate and appears to be accurate.A nice big base is provided that includes the chest and shoulders of the dead Frenchman submerged in stagnat water. A nice two piece skull is provided as well as the front 1/2 of his gun. A rat and broken bottle are also included, these two items I believe were also included with teh German Trench Raider figure. Like the figures, the casting of the groundwork is nice and crisp.I cannot comment on the fit of the kit (yet) but after taking an inital look at it, I\'m looking forward to taking a crack at this grizzly scene.It\'s nice to see more WWI products hitting the market.
