Wee Friends has started to re-release CMSC's metal figures. This one used to be set DF08 and is now in Wee Friends' catalogue as WFM72005.
We can be very happy that Friendship
Models chose to resurrect this line as these are wonderfully sculpted
items (by Tony Boustead). As with almost all metal figures, a seam
line is present, but this is very minor and should be easy to remove
with a hobby knife. No other casting defects were found in the metal
figures. Detail is abundant and facial expressions among the best
I have seen in this scale.
You get five figures:
All figures wear the Fallschirmjäger jump smock.
Apart from the figures you get a
wheelbarrow that comes as a resin body with metal wheel. Both will
need a fair amount of cleanup.
Doing the math, that would mean that this demi-squad is quite well armed. That said, I don't think all the spare weapons would ever fit in that tiny wheelbarrow.
These five figures make for an almost instant vignette representing retreating troops. Add a burnt out AFV on the side of the road and you're done !
