I bought these for my 7 year old grandson and the hours spent away from technology and put into painting has been well worth it. I recommend it to everyone, boys and girls. Also teaching him the history of the wars involved in the soldiers he was painting is educational too.

A few bad experiences recently with Airfix.
Poorer quality plastic, broken bits and limited selection of poses.
This product wasn't so bad. The plastic is still shiny and nasty looking but the poses were good with a better variety.
I get the feeling this more the one-off but, in this particular case, it was OK.

Bought two sets, one for my son to play with and the other for me to paint. Obviously, the other reviewers have overlooked painting as a substitute for the 'nasty plastic'. Even if you can't paint, you can wash the models in warm, soapy water to remove the factory finish.

Great figures for play and wargaming, in good poses, with a kneeling Bren gunner and an officer. Much more accurate, lifelike and individual than the supermarket kind. A lick of paint makes them even better to raid radar installations and dispatch Jerry sentries.

Back in the late-1970s I had hundreds of these I used to carry around in a big box, along with my Britains (1971) toys, those already painted with the green stands for those who are new to collecting toy soldiers. Granddad used to buy me one box of my choice each week from the local model shop - sadly, it's closed down. There's a lack of traditional model, record, and book shops these days, but they do exist if you search long and hard for them.

I used to love painting these, getting all the colours as perfect as possible , then arranging them into battle formation. Usually whilst a WWII film was playing in the background on TV. The Battle of the Bulge (1965). The Eagle Has Landed (1976). The Longest Day (1962). Where Eagles Dare (1968) and more. The details on the 1:32 figure as extremely detailed and this makes them fairly easy to paint; Airfix also provide the paint, each box have the relevant paint code on for each uniform.

I'm glad they are still producing these, as I thought about purchasing some again as a hobby now and then. There are also vehicles available and most model shops - even Hobby Craft - sell accessories like trees and landscapes, pretty much anything you need for different scenarios from the desert war with the 8th Army and the Africa Korps, to the paratroopers and the bombed-out buildings of France, even the mountain troops. I'm sure a lot of you out there will share the same memories of staging battles as a child.

* I have to agree with other reviewers here, that the quality of these are not as good at the ones I had circa late 1970s, early 1980s, but they are not really bad
