Hmm, you may be right about the guy with binoculars. He does look as though he could be wearing canvas and leather desert boots. Perhaps I was influenced by the box art which definitely shows them in Field Grey, not tropical uniform, and in a European setting. It’s hard to say with the other men. They are all wearing gaiters which is appropriate for the desert or for later war uniform. In any case the later “Keilhose” could be gathered in by buttons at the ankle, which would produce the effect seen.
Late war to me also, minus old mate with bino’s, either way desert/ late…all the better as its good to see no jack boots on any of them.
This is also interesting as this set were “Masterbox in process” last year. Is Master Box and ICM collaborating kits now?
