Very good review Rudi, we have what could almost be called a glut of Soviet tank crew figures which is a good thing. The pose of this figure looks very natural and I like the head.

From the review:
Quoted Text

I must admit to being a bit confused by the placement of the map-case. Firstly, it is not attached in any of the box-art photos. Secondly there does not appear to be any place along the belt, or indeed waist area, where the map-case will either realistically line-up with buckles or clips, or will sit comfortably.

Rudi, take a look at the third box art picture showing the left hip. The end of the shoulder belt is there with two hanger clips. Is that where the map case should be? maybe a bit of sanding to flatten the area where it would lie?
