In my opinion it is a so-so kit, not too bad, but needed some extra work.

I am very interested in this kit as it is the first I have sen with WW1 Germans in 1/35th scale. What problems did you see with the figures?? They appear to be OK from your photos. Do they not go together well?? Let me know. Thanks!!

Something as I noticed:
1.Hand grenade bags are just a piece of plastic, no hollow, no open end, and no hand grenade kits. You'd better home-made these grenade bags by tissues or epoxy putty or anything other.
2.And some other "soft" gears made with cloth in this kit are not lifelike enough--for example the M1915 assault packs, the "bread bags",and even the cartridge bandoliers. All need some scratchbuild or at least sand them smoothly.
3.But other things are not bad, especially the details of 98k rifle and helmets, are impressive.

So, it is not a really excellent kit but still worth you pay some money and time for it. I'm a WWII AFV model fan, not knowing much about WWI, infantry warfare and figure modelling, but HTH.
My reference source is this book: Laurent Mirouze, "World War I Infantry"(London: Windrow & Greene, 1990)
