Review

Another strange choice of subject, but another intriguing set that adds to the rapidly expanding diversity of subjects available in this scale. Of course the British had little opportunity for rest at Dunkirk as they were desperate to save as many Allied troops from capture as possible.

This resin set is very small, with only two copies each of three pieces. What's more two of those are of battlefield flotsam, namely a clump of oil drums and a scattering of personal equipment. The only figure is of a British infantryman resting and leaning up against a makeshift support made from a tyre and a fuel can. He wears his anti-gas respirator on his chest, but there are few other details to be seen.

A flexible mould has allowed a lot of undercutting, which makes this kind of pose possible where it would not be for the traditional steel mould used for most plastic figures. The result is an interesting figure but not a particularly crisply detailed one. Still, it is certainly a break from the norm.
