Mini-Art continues to expand its 1/35 line of figures this time with a 5-figure set of "British Officers". One of the figures wears a kilt and the rest of the figures have gear for somewhat cold weather (coats, scarfs, etc).

You get two sprues for a total of 52 parts, plus a small printed out page with a parts map. There is no flash in the sprues and the mold lines are extremely faint.

Assembly and color instructions are in the back of the box. The kilt is likely to be the most challenging part to paint. I know it is beyond my painting skills and I would have like to have a decal provided for it.

The figures are broken down in a typical fashion of torso (at times two or three parts), legs, arms and head. When applicable, hats are molded as an independent part. Two of the figures seem to have maps or books on their hands.

The general body language of the figures is somewhat relaxed, probably for a "planning" or "training" setting, rather than a combat one.

Recommended for your next winter '44 diorama.

I would like to thank Model Rectifier Corporation, Mini-Art and IPMS/USA for the review sample.
