1/35 "Volkssturm. Ammunition to the Frontline"|
The kit consists of two plastic sprues and one photo-etched parts sprue. It is for the assembly of models of a bicycle trailer loaded with military ammunition, and of two figures, a teenager boy and girl, who are pulling the bicycle trailer.
The story of the kit is simple but tragic and is emotionally filled in its own way. The events of the last days of the Third Reich are shown. Military operations were being conducted in German territory and the units of Volkssturm took an active part in the protection of the country. Two such young Volkssturm members are pulling weapons and ammunition to an advanced position, so that their unit can protect the hopeless position. Despite the restrained poses, the kit shows quite a bit of emotion.
The figures interact well with each other and can be used either for creating a mini-diorama with the parts offered, or creating a larger story with the use of models, equipment and accessories of other manufacturers.
The model of the bicycle trailer highly corresponds to the original in accuracy. The availability of the photo etched parts allows the creation this model at museum level.
