The Plastic Soldier Company offers a wide range of individualized kits as well as complete sets, armies in a box if you will, to cover a wide range from history from ancients to modern. The Plastic Soldier Company also offers a nice selection of paints and weathering products for the builder to finish their models as they seem fit.
The Late War German Infantry 1943-45 figure set from Plastic Soldier is sold in a sturdy end opening box containing three grey colored sprue trees with enough parts for the construction of fifty-seven (7) figures in 1/72 scale.
Contents: 57 German Grenadier Infantry

The Late War German Infantry figures a nicely molded. There is the typical light seam line that encompasses the figure at the midpoint between the front and back of the figure. This can be removed quickly with a sanding stick and or a sharp #11 blade.
The detailing looks to be created very well for the small size of the 1/72 scaling. This kt comes with a simplified one-age instruction sheet which show how each of the figures are to be constructed.
The painting guide for these figures is located on the rear of the box which suggests the use of Acrylicos Vallejo’s Model Color paints for finishing:
