1/35 "The 101st Light Company" U.S. Paratroopers & British Tankman, France 1944 - 9 Figure Set
The kit continues the series of the kits devoted to the events of the WWII. It shows dramatic events of the liberation of France on the Western Front in 1944-1945. The story of the kit shows US Paratroopers in a march and they stop to help a young woman. The tragedy of the story is emphasized by the appearance of the girl. It shows evidence that she was caught in collaboration and was inflicted by a humiliating penalty that was usual for that time – her hair was cropped close to the skin. Knowing that, the Americans destroy barriers of stereotypes and show compassion and nobility.
The kit consists of two sprues with parts for 9 figures. Seven figures are US Paratroopers, one figure is British Tankman and one figure is the young woman with a child. The story of the kit is very dramatic, very dynamic and it allows for the creation of a very interesting diorama.
The kit interacts very well with other kits from other manufacturers. The figures are distinguished by a very high artistic level, they are well animated and they interact well with each other.
