Hi Darren, very nice kit, for sure is versatile and the figures are realistic and can be used in a lot of situations. Personally appreciated to have the heads separate, for easy painting.
Thanks for your review

I just built these for a diorama. The dio includes figures and heads from Dragon, Tamiya, Verlinden, and this ICM set. I feel that the ICM figures' faces and bodies were the best of the bunch. Of the styrene kits, their faces had the most details and their expressions were well-done.

Construction was super easy too. Very little filler needed at the usual joins. Far less than Dragon's or Tamiya's figures.

I did feel that their weapons were a bit lackluster however. The MG42 included with the set was outclassed in every way by a standard Tamiya offering. Their MP40's seemed a bit weak in detail and generally kind of over molded. Dragon's MP40's were a lot cleaner.

All in all I was really happy with this kit and would definitely recommend it.
