From GASO.LINE's Master Fighter line, today's Showcase item is their US Infantry mechanized - Normandie 1944 set. This is not a stand-alone set, but is intended for use with the Solido halftrack (not included). All parts come pre-painted.

US Infantry mechanized box set

This product comes in a sturdy, white-gloss box, with the contents well-packaged in custom-cut foam.

The infantry figures are coccooned between custom clamshells. There are three figures: a disembarking rifleman, a machine-gunner, and a rifleman firing.

Also part of the set - provided in a taped-shut bag - are resin and metal components for adding the machinegun to the halftrack, plus stowage items.

The final element is a double-sided color slip, showing the assembled machinegun. From the picture, it's pretty easy to figure out that the gunner is supposed to stand on top of an ammo box (with hole to match his foot-peg), and that he fits within the provided gun ring. A bracket attaches to the gun, which also attaches to the gunner's hands; an ammo clip fits into the gun.

The box front cover picture shows how two of the stowage items are used (one on the front bumper, the other on the left side); the remaining stowage piece presumably fits on the right side of the vehicle.
