Dynasty Scale Models
is a curious little figure set. A young private sits stiffly on
a run of sandbags, legs close together, reading the popular literary
magazine FM that hes pulled from his duffle bag. Next
to him is a sergeant, reading over the privates shoulder.
private is wears the M1941 khaki jacket, suspenders and cartridge
belt, with canvas leggings over his service boots and his M1 steel
pot on his head. The sarge, however, is dressed in a wool shirt
with double breast pockets and trousers, with no leggings or gear.
On his head is the billed crusher cap we more often
associate with WWII pilots than infantry in the front lines. So
this pair would be most at home in a rear echelon setting, perhaps
a repple depot where new reinforcements would be assigned
to their combat units.
figures are nicely sculpted by Jung H. Seo. The sarge is given a
bit of a paunch, and his face has more of a grizzled look to it.
If you dont like the crusher cap, you could saw it off and
give him a helmet. Flash is minimal and there are no significant
set comes with a base on which the sandbags and duffle bag are molded,
which is beneficial if you like vignettes or expendable if you work
these figures into a larger scene.
