These are the four crew figures that come with this Art-of-Tactic game piece, the Flak 36/37. All wear standard German uniforms which by their smartness and jack boots are more suggestive of the early war years than the last. They are encumbered with little personal kit, as you would expect from artillerymen in action, and the poses are excellent. All need some form of assembly, but the result is a set of ultra-realistic poses that would work for many guns, not just this one. The seated man working the gun is excellent, as is the man in the process of feeding a shell into the gun. This sort of obvious interaction with the weapon is often lacking in generic sets of artillery crew, but looks great when done well, as here.

The gun itself is a complex model which is not recommended for those with a short attention span or little patience, but the result is a superb model with considerable detail. The figures have no bases of their own, but the gun can either be free-standing with supplied feet, or mounted on a single base along with the figures as shown here. The result is superb, and by leaving off the flag marker you would have a perfectly reasonable display model as well as a game marker. The set also includes some decals, which is a nice touch, but however you use it this is a great model with some very appealing figures.
