ITALIAN INFANTRY
   

 

 

 

Apart from the first edition British Paratroops, this is probably the most sought after Airfix 1/32nd figure set ever, forgetting more common sets which appeared in less common boxes. Like the British Infantry set, this one was only produced for a year or two at most. I have found no release date for it and it only appears in the 1982 and 1983 catalogues. This seven pose set appeared in grey plastic and in the then normal twenty-eight and fourteen figure boxes. Definitely now a serious collectors' item.

Seven poses followed by the same numbering system as the Medieval Foot Soldiers and the four prone figures (which were not numbered), two of them with mould lugs still attached.

Three of the officer figures have the base shape on the right, the other having the one on the left.
