German Motorcycle Orderly Set

by: DMD [ DMD ]


Originally published on:
Armorama

This set contains a WWII German mid-size motorcycle DKW NZ 350 road signs and 2 military policemen.

The DKW NZ 350 is equipped with the 11 hp single cylinder two-stroke engine. The motorcycle is really nicely detailed and needs no sanding at all.

An advantage is the rotation wheel. The provided markings for the motorcycle are Polizei and Werhmacht. Also included are 2 figures. The military policeman (Feldgendarm) is clothed in M43 field uniform which was adopted in 1943. The orderly is clothed in reversible camouflage smock and trouser. The trouser has an Italian camouflage patterns. Patterns used on uniform where: plane tree patterns (spring), plane tree pattern (autumn) and Italian pattern. The uniforms are well detailed and the faces are good, but they can not compete with resin heads. The orderly have 2 heads to choose from. One has a cap with goggles on it the other does not.

The Road sign set is really nice, and handy to put in a diorama. The only thing that I found bad on this kit is that you have to cut the road signs, and map out of the box. Anyways, it's worth spending your money on buying this kit.

SUMMARY
Worth spending your money on buying this kit.
