Review

In their large Modern range, Atlantic included several sets of artillery of one sort or another. This is labelled as the heaviest, and includes two different types of gun plus a number of crew.

The crew are all similar or identical to figures in other Atlantic artillery sets, and are reasonable enough, though only the seated man is clearly manning the gun. The man with the range finder provides a challenge as it is very difficult to persuade the device to stay in his hands, but the seated man fits both the guns quite well. They are uniformed in a simple manner, and have nothing more than a pistol in terms of equipment, so they could be described as generic later 20th century soldiers from almost any country. The anatomy is not too good, with limbs in particular being rather thin, and detail is nothing to get excited about. In short, much like the rest of this particular range.

The main attraction here is of course the guns. Both are shown approximately in the same scale as the men in the pictures above, so their size is readily appreciated. The larger sits on three legs and looks pretty menacing. The smaller seems to be some anti-aircraft ordnance, and can tilt almost to the vertical as well as swivel. To be honest, this reviewer knows little about Italian artillery in the 1970s, so accuracy is not something that can be commented upon - the accuracy score below is purely speculative. However in general Atlantic seem not to have concerned themselves unduly with historic accuracy so long as what they produced looked the part. These are two pretty nice models, which is probably the designer's main concern.

The guns come in many pieces and fit together quite well, though occasional trimming is required. Assembly instructions are very basic, yet just adequate for the task. Some excess plastic needs to be removed from both guns and men, but while this is far from being one of the best sets ever made, it is quite fun.
