Hi Rob,

I picked up a set of these the other day, thought their might be a use for some truck passengers to. Haven't had a look at them yet so thanks for the review.

Cheers

The standing figure would of course be of David Stirling and not as spelt, 'Sterling'... A minor mistake and no insult intended I'm sure but such a famous man deserves his name to be spelt correctly.

I agree with the review. Just picked these up because I didn't want to spend a fortune on a couple of figures for my SAS Jeep. When I saw that Dragon was releasing a set I eagerly waited for them as plastic figure kits from Dragon are just as good as resin - except the heads of course, that is where Hornet comes in handy. Needless to say I was disappointed in the quality of the figure castings when I inspected the figures. COME ON DRAGON, YOU SHOULD KNOW BETTER!! Someone over there at Dragon should be hung, drawn, and quartered for that figure kit!!!

Well spotted, thanks Keith. I have spelt the surname correct elsewhere in the review, so we'll put this down to a silly typo, however as you say he shouldnt have his name spelt incorrect so i'll get it changed.

Thanks for the comments as well guys, i'm pleased you found the review helpful.
