What period?

Still WW2, but with more details.

Sorry, I was unclear, what period in World War 2, kit changed, there was the pre-war kit, the found at the back of the cupboard kit and the later kit.

I only just noticed the tea mug on the backpack, well spotted.

So have you spent time rendering the base to make it look nice? Or are we to expect detailed bases/inserts for the lipped bases?

The Marine and Army figures look very good,but the G.I. in the overcoat looks a little too wrinkled. The overcoats in real life are made from a heavy wool,and it wouldn't wrinkle as easily as the thinner wool or cotton trousers and shirts or jackets. The figure looks as if he has wadded his overcoat and trousers into a tight little ball, and packed them into the bottom of his dufflebag for a length of time before putting them back on.

Thanks for the comment. This is just a template, but will let our sculptors know and update this as required.

No idea on the US sculpts.

On the British one, the shape of the flap of the "map" pocket does not seem to match any of my (limited) reference material (Osprey Men at Arms 354 or the IWM photographs b9005_9006). They show a Vee shaped flap with a button (covered on earlier kit), the sculpt shows a plain flap with no button (time traveller with access to velcro?).

What is the cup hanging from?

The flap was updated with a v-shape flap and a button.  Will post the revised version after all the amendments are done!

The cup is hanging with a canvas strap on the side of the racksack.
