Thanks for the review Al.
In a way it's a pity the respirator case is moulded in place. It would be nice to have the option of using this figure in a late war setting.

Hi Pat,

Thanks. It's good point, would offer wider options, although this one is wearing the early style Greatcoat not seen much by the latter part of the war.

I do like these BEF options, early N Africa, Norway or the Home Front are other options so it's still pretty versatile and makes for an area not covered much before.

I'm hopeful Graham might do a set of early war gear which again would be very useful.

I noticed Italeri issued their 407 accessories set again recently so I stocked up on SMLE.
