Description

The M1943 field jacket replaced the M1941 starting from the second half of 1944. The M1941 and M1943 were used simultaneously throughout most of the early U.S. involvement in WWII. Double buckle boots were also introduced. A soldier would typically carry a canteen, ammunition pouch, scope, poncho and more. The average infantry was also equipped with a firearm such as the M1 Garand, BAR M1918A2 or a M1A1 sub-machine gun. Officers wielded an M1 carbine. Scout teams would carry a handy talkie radio. This set recreates an infantry scout team of five. This is a superb project by itself, and can of course be used in a diorama or vignette. This kit builds 5 figures wearing the M1943 field uniform. Figures include a commanding officer with M1 carbine appearing to survey the scene, two standing soldiers with an M1 Garand and BAR respectively, a kneeling soldier with the stock of his M1 on the ground, and one soldier with on a handy talkie. Comes with a wide range of crisply molded small accessories such as firearms, hand grenades, binoculars and more. All are given a detailed finish. Decals are included for recreation of various rank insignia.
