This set very nearly did not make it to our website because we are not covering single drivers, and all we have here is a driver and a few passengers. In the end the rarity of seated German soldiers meant we did include it, but to be honest it makes little difference because these are really poor figures. Both these figures wear a tunic, trousers and long boots, and have no belts or equipment of any kind apart from a waist belt. The passenger wears a steel helmet and the driver a peaked cap, but although the passenger carries a rifle he has none of the usual items we would expect on an infantryman. Both figures are also quite ugly, and although detail is fair these are not good sculpts. On our example we found a good deal of flash, and also sink holes, while as typical Airfix they have ugly mould marks round the back. They are also much smaller than 1/72 scale, in order that they can fit inside the cabin, but they would be no more than 20 mm tall were they to stand up.
While several vehicles could benefit from having troops sitting inside them, these do not hold up well on closer inspection. In fairness they are intended to be inside a vehicle and so partly obscured, and their diminutive size is easy to understand, but will have limited use in other situations, although as always they are worth knowing about.
Although the completed kit was often illustrated in Airfix catalogues, as below, naturally the figures were always hard to see. In fact in 1983 the model was photographed without the figures at all.
