is the "third generation" Warriors paratrooper, with new
arms and head for the same walking body. The wounded leg from #35257
has been neatly puttied over, and instead of carrying a pouch of
spare Tommy gun ammo on his hip, he now has binoculars hanging from
a sling. He carries a .30 M1917A1 Browning machine gun and can of
ammo. The head is different from previous incarnations.
sculpting, again by Brian Stewart, is fine, and the pieces are neatly
cast. The box art painting shows the uniform a bit greener in color
than is typical for the M1942 uniform. One would be better using
the illustration from #35257 or DML's figures as a color reference.
He stands under 6' tall.
would be nice if Warriors, who released two original paratroopers
shortly before this clone, would give this fellow a newly-sculpted
partner, carrying a couple more cans of ammo and a tripod for the
gun. I don't understand why none of the companies who have created
GI's toting the .30 cal (including Warriors, Verlinden, and Custom
Dioramics) have recognized the fact that these boys typically worked
in teams - one carried the MG, one carried the tripod, and a third
carried extra ammo.
