WW2 Japanese Tank Crew

Kit # WFM7232

Preview by Rob Haelterman

This white metal set offers us three full figures and two half figures representing Japanese tankers, which are woefully under-represented in our scale.
Admittedly, I am completely clueless when it comes to the Japanese armed forces, so I will need to limit myself to what I see.

The casting of these figures is rather rough, with prominent seam lines and quite a heavy texture. Poses are rather static and facial expressions somewhat caricatural. Detail of the uniforms is OK. You get three separate arms, where only three are required.

With some clean-up and a decent paint job these figures will happily augment the recent offerings of Japanese armor.
