I really like the Guy in the long trousers. He'd make a great crewman for my LWS(If I ever build it) or with a change of head a good British Tank Officer.

Thanks for the review Rudi.
Donīt think Ive read a longer review for 2 figures before ..... please stay away from the "6 figures in a box" sets . Actually, excellent review .... very complete.

This is an extremely detailed review Rudi. Your usual commitment to the site is reflected by your research, critique and quality photographs which make up one of the most complete reviews I've seen here.

To be honest, I didn't read the whole thing (as the subject doesn't interest me), but from a quick scan and viewing the photo's, it looks like another fantastic product from Alpine.

Thanks for the comments guys.

Despite you finding it comprehensive (and I'm really glad you did) I am actually concerned that you find it rather long. Especially if you lose focus through it. I'm always open to critique, so please, if you feel I should remove certain portions in future reviews that are of less value please feel free to say so. If you feel I should concentrate more on certain aspect of the figure than others, let me know.

Your comments are always appreciated

Rudi

Well...had you been reviewing one of the few subjects that interest me (i.e Japanese or Australian inf.) then I would be enthralled and read the whole thing, back-to-front, twice!

Maybe people with a broader interest, or perhaps a with only a medium level of enthusiasm for North African Germans would find the review too long.

I say write as much as possible and let people take out as much or as little as they want to.
