Kit #2? Does this mean that this was Milicast's second figure set? Wow. Great start. Overall an excellent set with superb sculpting. About the only things that I can complain about are the hands seem a little bit too large on a couple of the figures, and the facial cheeks are a bit too exaggerated. Other than that, the sculpting on these guys is really outstanding. I've already used one of the figures on my FSF Composite Sherman (pictured below). Although labeled as 1/76th scale, the standing figures are actually between 24 and 26mm with their helmets on, which is about perfect for an average 1/72nd scale figure. All but one of the figures wears the tanker's helmet and one has his goggles on, which would be great for a Tunisian diorama.
