Tamiya 1:35 - German Afrika Korps Infantry


Tamiya 1:35 - German Afrika Korps Infantry - Plastic Figure Model Set #35314

This set contains 5 figures depicting infantrymen from Field Marshal Rommel's vaunted Afrika Korps, including an officer, an NCO, a rifleman in firing position, a machine gunner, and a loader. Each can be assembled in a realistic pose and all feature superb details such as open-collared jackets, goggles, and long canvas boots. 

The Afrika Korps uniform was basically the same as the one for Europe, but featured open collars and a specific armband on the right sleeve. The Olive Green cotton shirt and trousers faded into various shades in the desert sun. Leather was not suited for the dry conditions, so canvas belts and boots were worn. This uniform was easy to produce and influenced the design of European Theater uniforms from mid-WWII onwards.
