"A Fair Start"
johncpo41 (www.hobbiesinabarn)
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.

"Good old, high-quality kit."
For an old kit, the figures are well sculpted despite a couple of figures having seam lines going down the middle of their faces. Parts fit well but you will need some epoxy putty to fill gaps and divots. The equipment is lacking in detail so you will want to find newer sets to replace them. This set includes a nice mix of marching and actions poses, including three soldiers firing their weapons in standing, kneeling, and prone positions, as well two running for covering or advancing under fire. Plus there is a wide assortment of uniforms from all stages of the war in the ETO/MTO.

"Tamiya US Infantry Euro Theater Solier Set 1/35 scale"
jefffrazier13 (San Diego, California)
Very well Molded, Very Little Flash, or seam lines, Clean up was QUICK & Easy. Figures fit well together, very little putty needed to hide bad matings, Good selection of poses, * Figures included!! Good Value for the Price & with a little thought & Care easy enough to customize the figures!! Outstanding Kit, Bought 2, 100% SATISFIED!! ;-))))

"Just OK for the price, not more"
Rhodesian Infantry (USA)
These figures are made with somewhat dated 70's technology and it shows, but can be made to work for you for ww2 or Korean War or even US Allies post war period with some work. If you are going for a really detailed project get another more detailed product like Dragon etc... , but if you are looking for low price, and simplicity of building and can deal with just OK quality, these are fine for you.I think the low price is the selling point for me.


  • 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.
