Great! These figures look absolutely brilliant... well done Vladi!

Thanks for an informative review Engin. This set is definitely a must for all Vietnam figure fans.

Nice review of what looks a good product. I do have one concern which is avoiding damage to the muzzle of the M16 when removing the pour plug.

I had the same concernes when I saw this kind of a large plug attached to the tiny gun barrels... Bravo6 and Evolution Miniatures come to mind. However, I found out the plug can be cleaned up easily if a modeler is patient; I don't know how to explain it, but somehow the plug is not firmly attached to the barrel and it usually comes off without damaging the weapon.

Mario

PS What I'd like to see is a size comparison between Bravo6 and HobbyFan figures... both have some excellent Vietnam items and I've been wondering if they can be used in a same diorama.

Darren,such way of plug attach is tribute not only for technology, but also for mail shipping.Indeed,it`s look might,but place of touch this plug to barrel is very thin.You can gently delete this plug even without tool and after clean carefully with sharp knife.
As for me,I delete this plug without problem,but later damage barel when painted.
