ROCO 272 - Bundeswehr Jäger light infantry, ou Panzergrenadiers (motorized) dismounting from their Unimog transports, 1/87 H0 Figurines ROCO 272

Panzergrenadier infanterie motorisée ou mécanisée de la Bundeswehr allemande, ou Jäger infanterie légère soclée on fireteam-sized bases pour Crossfire jeux de guerre. These troops have recently been issued new olive green Kampfanzug uniforms avec matching trousers et field jackets. This rarely happened. Bundeswehr "Nato Jeans" faded relatively quickly to a stone grey colour due to regular machine washing on weekend leave. The Kampfjacke field jacket typically had a moderately faded look, depending on the individual draftee's time in service. Field jackets were only worn during guard duty et on field maneuvers, et they were washed less often than the trousers. Trousers could be a light stone grey colour if washed frequently, ou they were a brand new olive green colour if recently re-issued. To simulate the fading et replacement process, Bundeswehr figurines should have their trousers painted in a much lighter stone grey ou a slightly darker olive green than the field jacket. Field jackets et trousers rarely matched, unless the owner is a recent draftee, ou un officier ou sous-officier supérieur avec more than two sets of issue field trousers in his locker.

Évaluation

  • Choix de sujet excellent, these multipose figurines can be used pour représenter infanterie, génie, et soldats de transmissions de la Bundeswehr.
  • Excellent poses d'infanterie avançant in a combat zone. On the march, the rolled sleeping bag would be strapped to the top of the pack.
  • Bundeswehr infantry equipment is worn in the proper fashion, avec the canteen attached to the left side of the pack, et the gasmask bag on the left hip, although the entrenching tool was more commonly carried inside the pack to improve noise camouflage.
  • The G3 assault rifle may be painted pour représenter le G3A2 avec wooden stock et grip, ou the G3A3 avec olive green plastic stock et grip, often seen concurrently within the same unit.
  • The figurines are sold avec separate arms which may be used to create an amazing variety of poses. Ammunition boxes et some personal weapons are cast directly onto the separate arms, making it easier to handle them. Some arms have open hands et there are enough spare weapons et equipment items available to fill them.
  • These Bundeswehr troops are stockier than other 1/87 scale figurines, et they may be mixed avec figurines au 1/76 available from Airfix.
  • Compatible avec Airfix, et Preiser.
  • ROCO incorrectly advertises these figurines as US, Bundeswehr, et Nato troops, but their personal gear is standard Bundeswehr equipment not issued to other Nato allies. Les figurines sont best used pour représenter Jäger chasseurs et infanterie de réserve territoriale. Panzergrenadiers normally leave their packs et sleepingbags in the Marder fighting véhicule, although there may be times when they carry the packs avec them. Ces soldats may not be used pour représenter Gebirgsjäger chasseurs alpins de la Bundeswehr qui portaient 3/4 length trousers et mountain boots, et they need to be armed differently pour représenter Fallschirmjäger parachutistes et infanterie aéroportée.
  • Noticeable mould ejection marks on the pack et on the jacket cuff should be filled prior to painting.
  • The strap of the gasmask bag has not been recreated in miniature; it is worn over the right shoulder et diagonally across the body.
  • In the field, the steel helmet would be covered avec netting to accept foliage, ou crumpled paper in urban combat scenarios. The mistake may be corrected by glueing a small piece of gauze bandage over the helmet et adding flock on top of it.
  • The shirtcollar is worn above the collar of the field jacket, partially covering it. This has not been modelled correctly. The shirtcollar is of a much darker olive green colour than the collar of the field jacket.
  • L'officier porte son étui de pistolet P1 mal à la hanche gauche.
  • The Bazooka rocket launcher may be shortened pour représenter le lance-roquette antichar Panzerabwehrbüchse 84 mm (Panzerfaust lourd).
  • Crisp mould lines need to be scraped off prior to painting.
  • Joueurs de guerre may find these figurines much too fragile to handle individually, but they will be fine if mounted on fireteam-sized bases.
