Modeling the U.S. Army in WWII

Platoon joined the VLS empire in 2003, offering a line of resin figures created in conjunction with Italian company Pegaso Models. VLS suggests the quality of these figures is "unsurpassed" but they're on par with the best of Warriors and Jaguar. And on the first four figures, there is a puzzling change of size in cartridge pouches, even though all the masters were sculpted by the esteemed Bill Chilstrom. Soon after the initial flurry of products in 2003 and 2004, VLS was purchased by Squadron and the Platoon line went out of production.
