Thanks for the review, Bob. I have this set as well. I agree that the poses are a little stiff, but the equipment supplied with them is first rate. The tunic is a tropical weight shirt with vent slits on the sides as well as the rear. I imagine if the arms were raised more we could see the underarm vents as well. I would have liked to see the neck protection flaps on the soft helmets, but they are fairly simple and should be easy to make. I did like the addition in the decals of the "mountain crest" badges and diligence chevrons. They will help detail the Modelkasten set I have.
