Should have been in the Figures Forum, although very applicable here as well

Hi James,

Thanks for putting this one up, I've been meaning to do this set for a while.

Can't do a build blog guys, but I used the set recently for my Air Landing troops:







and last year for my Commandos

Alan this is a good review but it must be the most expensive way of getting the items, or am I missing something as regards injection plastic offerings? I will add that the price is less than I expected.

Agree that it is a great set.

Only problem with mine was that when I received it half the bajonets were broken.

For the Tamiya "british infantry on patrol" set it's a neccesity, as this comes with early bajonets, and without respirator boxes.

Hi Darren,

I have a supply of these as I have more land troops to build for my Nan Red project and as the Commandos all wore bergens on D Day no other choice. Where other sets do provide the 43 respirator case it is way out of scale and the bandoliers are most useful.

As I've gotten the Airborne bug, these are really useful for the Air Landing Brigade chaps as well.

MB are the only folks who make a plastic Bergan and it's OK but not great. Also It's not one I need but many lol, lol.

Marc,

You must have been unlucky all my bayonets arrived intact.
