For anyone who was concerned that they'd missed out on this limited edition (50 pieces)  set from Hobbycrash...

...then fret not as you can easily put one together.  

I  thought that the cap and ammo pouches looked familiar, and I've just had it confirmed by Cotswold Collectibles on Facebook, that Hobbycrash bought the caps and pouches from Cotswold.

I recognised the pieces instantly as I'm a big fan of Cotswold's stuff and I'd used the cap in this kitbash back in 2009...

And the caps are only $2.99 from Cotswold.   Also in Afrika Korp tan and Luftwaffe blue versions.

And once again, they've done the same with this latest set, limited to 100 sets.

The bread bag, mess tin, canteen and entrenching tool are all Cotswold pieces.

Notice however, that the gas mask canister (located between the rifle and the belt on the card) is the incorrect tan coloured Afrika Korps version, and not the green version that would be appropriate for this uniform.

This is because Cotswold have been sold out of the green version for quite some time.

This is the correct version.

So these Hobbycrash Stormtroopers are essentially kitbashes sold in packaging. And their limited edition status is determined by Cotswold Collectibles' remaining stock.
