An Elite Team
From the second half of 1944, the M1943 field jacket replaced the M1941, which had been used through most of the early U.S. involvement in WWII; simultaneously, double buckle boots were also introduced. A soldier would typically carry a canteen, ammunition pouch, scope, poncho and more, with the average infantry equipped with a firearm such as the M1 Garand, BAR M1918A2 or a M1A1 sub-machine gun. Officers wielded an M1 carbine. Scout teams would carry a handy talkie radio. This set recreats an infantry scout team of five, which will make a superb project by itself, and can of course be used in a diorama or vignette.

About the Model
This is a 1/35 scale figure assembly kit. Parts recreate soldiers from the second half of 1944, wearing the M1943 field jacket: a commanding officer with M1 carbine surveys the scene, two standing soldiers have an M1 Garand and BAR respectively, a further soldier kneels with the stock of his M1 on the ground, and one soldier is pictured with the handy talkie. Comes with a wide range of crisply molded small arms. Decals are included for recreation of various rank insignia.

Packaging


This set creates a late-WWII scout team in great detail. Two of the helmets are recreated with netting.


A soldier is stopped, M1 Garand in hand. The poncho for his back is optional.


Choose whether the BAR M1918A2 soldier also has a poncho. Depictions of folds and creases add extra life.

Left: Depictions of small arms have a crisp finish. Other accessories such as bayonet, grenades and binoculars are included.

Right: The included decals are a great way of receating rank insignia on your figures.
