    Steve Readdie sent me several kits for review and I decided to do the 90mm figure first. This is a resin, 9 part light gray kit with lots of character to the figure. A youthful German with his rifle over his shoulder.

    Arriving in a sturdy white cardboard box with the parts sealed inside zip-lok bags the bags were then sandwiched between layers of thick foam for padding. Several box art photos are on the label to help the painted during painting.

    Conclusion:
    An excellent kit from Reedee's Miniatures. Normal seam lines to be removed as well as casting blocks. Highly recommended.

    Nice looking figure, though the gas mask canister, mess kit and canteen seem to be a bit undersized to my eyes. Here's a great reference site for German field gear:

    I'm a bit late on this one. Great piece of work Steve, as usual the weapon looks spot on.
