I will be buying these for WW2 because I have a Berlin street scene I'm working on (and because they are beautiful figures). But I won't be using all the figures - they won't fit! I was wondering about using a few, or even just one or two, of the riflemen.
I just have basic information about the WW1 Russian infantryman, nothing about his WW2 comrade. Could I put a bayonet on these WW2 rifles? Are the packs and bags they have on their backs very far wrong, or are they plausible for WW1?
Yes I noticed the non standard helmets(Ssh-39 being the standard WWII helmet)on some. I reserved judgement until I got the set but they still look strange in the round. I thought they might be the Adrian but not really and they have shown they can do those properly. They don't look like the model 36 so I am stumped or they could be a mistake. They are so different as to look intentional as the other helmets are well done.
I have done a quick search for what rifles might have been used in WW1 and WW2. The Mosin-Nagant seems to be the same for both wars.
Could the riflemen in this set be armed with Mosin-Nagant rifles?
I'm thinking they don't look far off, but I don't have the eye for detail that some people have!
