Many will immediately spot that this set is exactly the same as the crew figures from the Revell German Artillery set. The sculpts are the same, although this set comes in the smaller 1/87th scale and in a very hard plastic. This was part of a joint project by Revell and Preiser, and other Preiser sets supply the rest of the artillery. Therefore our comments on the crew figures in the Revell set apply equally here and do not bear repeating. All the figures in this set come complete apart from the final man (which needs assembly - see the sprue), but none have any base and, of course, there is no gun. Their small size makes them less appealing to most viewers of this site as they do not pretend to be 1/72 scale, so for most it would be better to obtain the cheaper and more complete Revell set.
