I needed a spotter and a few other unique figures for my Battlegroup Kursk project. As I looked around my local hobby shop, I spotted Zvezda's Soviet Reconnaissance Team. It was about $4, so I picked it up to try it out.
The figures are nicely detailed and are compatible with the Plastic Soldier Company's Russians that I am using for my regular infantry.
Flash was minimal and assembly was easy. Each figure is made up of a very hard plastic and has two or three parts compromising the model. The facial details are very good and I am looking forward to painting them up. I don't think that I will use their stands... instead I'll opt for mounting them on English pennies. The one thing that concerns me is that the gun barrels are very dainty. I hope that they will hold up during game play.
This kit is well worth the price and I would recommend it to those who are considering customizing their Soviet WWII forces.
