Review

Known as Motorised Squad in Italian, the English name is more descriptive. What you get is a jeep and four figures to put into it. The jeep is a lot larger than the tiny model provided with the Landing Craft Infantry set, and if anything is really too large for this scale. The whole of the body of the vehicle is one piece, with separate wheels and axles, plus a number of smaller attachments such as the machine guns at the rear. It's a nice piece, though a much simplified model - it can't be compared to the genuine hard-plastic models produced by such companies as Airfix.

The four figures are, from left to right on the above scan, the driver, an officer and two soldiers who sit along the bench seats in the back. All the figures fit quite well into the jeep, but as can be seen they do not look good. Their generic uniforms are lacking most details, and the general anatomy and realism is pretty poor.

As usual there was a great deal of flash, and mould marks abound. Though everything fitted well we couldn't help wondering at the wisdom of the machine guns at each rear corner. The only direction they could be used is directly behind the jeep, and even that would require the soldier to be twisted sideways. This is fine as a toy, or if you need a lot of over-sized jeeps cheaply and don't care about the quality, but apart from that this set has little to offer.
