Thanks for the review Darren. Your usual well balanced and fair review. A couple of points. The figure is not wearing a shirt; from the photos he is wearing the winter trousers pulled over his tunic, as was usually seen in period photos. Soldiers are quite often shown wearing just the trousers of this suit when relaxing. The tunic does show insignia - the arm eagle shows the figure to be SS and there is a square badge clearly depicted on the left cuff. This is the Finnish lion patch, silver on black and the shape and position makes the figure demonstrably Finnish, although of course if you don't want him to be, the patch can be filed off.

Thank you for the feed back Steve and I did not realise that to be the case. What I meant by no insignia identifying the figure as Finnish SS I meant that it could be an SS figure from any unit. Perhaps the inclusion of some decals would have overcome this issue.
