Hi James
Nice review and having just built the kit, pretty accurate too. one point i would make about the figures is that their uniforms are maybe a bit early for a crew to go with an sWS, as they all have the early war pleated pocket design which was generally replaced by a simplified version around 1943. The sWS didn't enter service until 1944 so this uniform would probably have been pretty scarce by then as would the high boots and side caps worn by some figure.
But a good and usefull review.
