Italeri 6068 German Elite Troops – Revell 02584 German Mechanized Infantrymen

Italeri Set 6068 German Elite Troops & Revell Set 02584 German Mechanized Infantrymen



This set was first issued by Italeri and then it also was issued by Revell.

Most poses looks quite correct, except the man firing the Panzerfaust and the mortar one. All seems to be equipped for winter time.

Wrong position to fire a Panzerfaust :).

Clearly, set is designed for late war years, showing several MP43/StG44 and high differences in equipment. Most of the soldiers don’t wear all the equipment and many of them have wrong position for the shale and canteen.


Overall set is quite well sculpted, maybe the worst figure is the mortar one, a bad base and just one server.

You must correct the angle of some MG0’s bipod, which have been rotated because mould problems, but it’s not a hard task.

Paint Guide.

  1. Nice figures, but you made the officer an artillery-guy by adding the red "effekt" to his cap 😉
    Silver would be correct (I guess thats the reason why they didn't wear it in combat 🙂 )
    Cheers, Mojo
