FirstLook

 

Still a fairly new kid on the block, Lincoln County Line has been releasing a broad range of products. This is the most recent. They are two German soldiers that appear to be in very animated conversation.

Inside the package are ten yellow resin parts that are crisp and require only minimal cleanup and preparation. Assembly is easy, and fit is good.

Once assembled, I thought that the poses were a little too animated, and the size of the figures definitely seemed closer to 1/32. They are gigantic compared to other 1/35 scale figures. The other disappointment is that there are no weapons included even though one figure is wearing his rifle clip pouches and field gear.

Overall, these figures are not bad but would probably look out of place in a diorama with other figures. In a vignette, though, they would look appropriate and interesting.

Recommended as a stand-alone project.

Thanks to VLS for the review sample
