FirstLook

 

I have built quite a few Nemrod figures and it seems that they get better with every new release. This figure follows that rule.

Nemrod's 75mm (1/24 scale) WWI German Sturmtruppen 1917 is fantastic from tip to toe.

Inside the box are 15 light grey resin parts oozing with detail - very impressive indeed.

 

 

There are a few nice touches in the breakdown of the parts. Some of the detail, including the gasmask and the straps, are moulded onto the figure, simplifying constructions and minimizing filling. Tne head is moulded as a complete part, and the helmet is completely hollow. Detail painting for the face and head will be especially noticeable in this large scale, and the separate helmet will make this task easier.

The instructions are actually two very clear colour photographs of the completed figure shoeing a front and rear view of fittings and positions of limbs.

Recommended.

Thanks to Squadron for the review sample.
