    Product Description
    (Type: model figures) This is a plastic model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So glue, model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required.

    Following the release of Rommel and German Infantryman (item 89629) earlier this year Tamiya releases another two popular 1/16 scale figures to 1/35 scale. Featuring more detail than standard 1/ 35 MM Series figures, these figures are a collector's delight.
    About the German Machine Gunner
    In contrast to the earlier coats used by the German infantry, which featured a short dark green collar, later production coats featured a large collar to protect the neck from the cold. The collar color was also changed to field gray, the same color as the rest of the coat, for easy production. Although initially produced in 100% wool, as the war continued more rayon was used due to a lack of materials. The MG42 machine gun, the successor to the MG34, was used from 1942. Firing 1,200 rounds/min, the MG42 was the fastest automatic gun used throughout WWII.

    Figure is dressed in late-WWII greatcoat with MG42 machine gun carried on the shoulder.
    Large collar and cuffs come as separate pieces, adding to overall appearance.
    During WWII, the Luftwaffe uniform was a blue-gray, four pocket type. Some uniforms featured an armband sewn onto the right sleeve to indicate the airforce division to which the pilot belonged. Although Luftwaffe pilots wore overalls in the early stage of the war, during the Battle of Britain most pilots wore a life jacket over their uniform. Fighter pilots were allowed considerable freedom regarding their apparel, with personal items such as leather jumpers and colorful scarves often worn
