Box contains 48 figures in 12 different poses, some of the suitable to populate vehicles, produced by other manufacturers such Dragon Models (See Dragon – 7439 – Long Range Desert Group (LRDG) Patrol Car w/Lewis Gun, Dragon – 7504 – Long Range Desert Group Patrol Car w/2cm Cannon or Matchbox – 40173 (PK-173) – L.R.D.G 30cwt Chevrolet Willy’s Jeep, also available under Revell brand Revell – 03225 – L.R.D.G. 30 cwt Chevrolet & Jeep.).

The 12 different poses are mostly devoted to combat/action poses, except two to fit vehicles, one officer with binoculars and one using a shovel. Uniforms and weapons are correct and suitable for the period and role of the figures, poses are quite classic ones but well executed and sculpture is very good.
