The last of the re-designed sets, and the rarest. Heller (and General Mills) managed to totally screw-up not one but two sets of moulds/mould-tools. I will deal with all that another day when I some relevant pictures, but suffice to say; A) the only way you can tell which tool your set comes from is to measure the distance between the two locating-holes or spigots in the hull/deck of the canoe and B) Airfix have reverted to the earlier set of dancing loons for this set which remains in their catalogue and a favorite for adding to play sets.-
Otherwise the pose-count wasn't great with this set - it has to be said. There were the 7 ex-54mm poses, some ladder carriers and climbers who - along with the rowers - mirror the 1st/4th type, the bazooka operator (who is a nice figure), the grapple thrower (similar to the Matchbox chap), and the radio-operator/signaller we've looked at above.
As with the German Infantry and US Marines, the all new poses are thinner and easy to identify.
