These two releases are related, as they can both be used on the Italeri RSO kits - the Crew in the cab and the seated Grenadier on the flatbed.

All three figures are perfectly cast in pale yellow resin. The casting block connectors are quite thin. A few minutes with a knife and a sanding stick will take care of removal and cleanup. It is nice to see that these figures have a number of locating pins and blocks to ensure correct alignment of parts.

Detail is crisply rendered on all the figures, and the drape of the loose smocks is very well done.

The poses will be helpful for a diorama. The SS Officer in the passenger seat of the RSO is leaning out of the window while the NCO concentrates on the driving. In the back, the Grenadier sits with one leg outstretched and leaning against the drop side of the cab.

These two releases will be high-quality additions to a vignette or diorama using Italeri's 1/35 scale RSO.
