Probably the most spectacular of the trio you have shown us, last few days. Particularly impressive, as I have never rated the plastic Perry Carabiniers as highly as their cuirassier alternatives. Always thought the heads were far too slender in the coronal plane and the faces less detailed. I confess I prefer the round valise too, although plenty of evidence for both styles.

Again, your highly characteristic style, with the intense black edging, really works well, especially on light coloured figures like these.

Great attention to detail. I think I see buff centres to the cross belts and that is not easily done. Equally, I think the officers have a slightly more copper finish but both are hard to tell as the photography needs intense illumination. The trumpeters are great.

They are superb. If only we could get figures like this in metal. My Front Rank ones sit forlornly in their undercoat…as for a few years now……..all gazing to the heavens watching for Stukas

I like the crispness of the black lining (or undercoat) – makes the colours pop
