"The main element of this kit is the BMP3, naturally, which is a Russian infantry fighting vehicle that has been in service (through numerous variants) since 1987. It looks to be an impressive kit, with a very large number of pieces, and includes a lot of interior detail too. However, as always, we will ignore the kit and concentrate on the generous number of figures that come with it, which are pictured above.

Three of the figures in our top row form the three-man crew. First is the driver, sitting and with arms reaching to control the vehicle, which is well done because he is a single piece, with no separate arms or legs. He is nicely sculpted, with good detail and a natural pose. He wears the normal Russian padded cloth tankers helmet and standard uniform, so although he might be difficult to see on the finished model, his inclusion is well worthwhile and a nice touch. Next is a crewman also seated, but with both hands on his knees and in a relaxed position. This figure wears a soft peaked cap rather than the tanker's helmet, and while he too is nicely sculpted the left side of his face has suffered somewhat. The third crewman is the figure at the end of the row standing and pointing. Dressed the same as the driver, he is intended to be standing in the turret, which is why he has no base…."
