No scrabbling about in attics,or lamenting the fact you gave them away 20 years ago-they`re back!!!

One of the strongest WW2 sets Airfix ever produced and now thankfully re-issued albeit in a shocking colour-(Can`t wait to get that undercoat on!)Lots of nice poses on offer here,a generous 14 instead of the customary 7,although slight downside is that you`ll be very lucky to get everything pictured.Airfix do state on the packaging that quantities may vary so be warned-annoying though when you get 3 or 4 of the same figure.Nice rendering of the MP 40 S.M.G. although shame the FG42 ,which was developed specifically for the paras,isn`t featured here.As mentioned some nice poses but not sure what the guy is attempting with rifle held like he`s waving a flag-looks ridiculous!A totally new set on the "Green Devils" would be welcome:perhaps troops in tropical gear or winter clothing and hopefully if these old soldiers still prove popular then Airfix will oblige.
