I have refused to complete the ratings for this as they describe it as a toy - it's a scale model kit, and I wish Amazon would start taking this on board.
As far as the kit itself goes it's well moulded with good clear details and you do get a lot in the box: 5 figures, US equipment, weapons, decals for the camouflaged uniforms (more suited to the early part of the century than the present day) and printed paper ration boxes. The paper used for the boxes is very thin... not a patch on aftermarket items by DioArt or Verlinden.
The figures are well, sculpted... although the hands are not. The female figures suffer from some proportional problems - too tall for the size of their heads and with rather chunky thighs - I've since 'corrected' one of mine. The male figures are better, although they will be better served with aftermarket heads from the likes of Hornet or Verlinden.
Compared to the likes of Bronco, Dragon, Masterbox and MiniArt they are lacking in interesting poses, but they do make a good base for conversions, and you don't get many female military figures from modern conflicts.
