Here is the latest from a local Australian manufacturer, Firestorm, and he's a ripper!

There is not a large choice of Aussie WWII figures, but that is all changing and here is some proof. Firestorm's 1/16 scale Digger is cast in six cream-coloured resin parts.

Assembly will not be a big job after minimal cleanup.

Detail is excellent, especially the .303 rifle.

In my opinion, this will be a must-have for any Australian figure modellers, and will look great on a base after a careful paint job.

Highly Recommended.

Thanks to David of Firestorm for the review samples
