"Us Infantry ETO 1/35"
The over all construction of the figures is pretty straight forward. Some customization, swapping torso's, feet, etc, is easy enough and the price is right to gain experience with this kit to attempt it. Only draw back is some of the figures clothing. Legging's on some with boots with collars for the others. If doing a Normandy dio, the guys that have the boots with the collars are not correct but would be for 09/44 and on, and the same goes for their coats. Only point it out bc I had someone point it out to me on a dio I was attempting to construct. Another minor set back was the amount of flash that needed to be removed from the figures. Not a huge issue, and could have been a bad single patch from the company but over all, very excellent and fun.

"Great for figure painting practice"
jc (Missouri)
I bought this kit as a low cost answer for figure painting practice. It's got a lot of flash to clean up, no problem there. They obviously aren't the best out there but they'll fill the need I have for now and once painted I'll build a little diorama for that practice as well. If I was well practiced in figure painting and dioramas I would avoid this kit all together. I will recommend it for beginners like myself.

"A Fair Start"

Tamiya came out with this set and others in the same category in the 1970s and 1980s to define figure sets as being loaded with extra detailing and separate parts such as add on rifles. This set was a far cry from earlier figure sets by other model companies and held that position until the 1990s. I built the figures from this set when it was first released and found the perfect figures for the times. The bulkiness of the parts was only due to not having the technology available for the dyes at the time and that was the reason for heavier figures. For the times, this and the companion Tamiya sets they were the best. I would highly recommend this and the companion sets for beginner model builders to learn on. I still have various figures from this set as re-released at different times and have found a place for them in many dioramas.

"not great"

The kit had too much flash and the poses were unrealistic. Also the figure that's prone needed re sculpting to be historically accurate.


  • Keep from children ages 3 and under, due to small parts which may cause choking.
  • Paints recommended for use with this kit are for adult modelers only.
