An interesting release. The tribesman is interesting, I suppose one could use him in a modern setting, too...

Very good review mate, has convinced me to get this set. I only need the donkey and rider atm, but the crew will be useful for my DAK Pz. III.

Any ideas of where to source this one in Australia?

I may just wait it out and see if they appear on ebay pehaps.

Thanks again!

Cheers Damian

Sorry, I don't. I am not very familiar with suppliers for other countries.

Thanks again,

Hi Damian,

I am glad you found yourself a kit.

For using the donkey and rider in a modern scene I thought a person could place an AK-47 or possibly an Enfield in the riders right hand. It would make it kind of cool looking in my opinion anyway.

Thanks again and I am glad that my review helped.
