  1. USAF Flight-Line Extinguishers w/Modern Figure (201848) 1:48 VideoAviation Flight-lines are sometimes dangerous places thanks to start-up and shut-down of aero-engines being a little bit prone to spontaneous fires if something doesn’t turn on or off correctly. That’s why you see ground-crew standing at a respectful distance with a fire-extinguisher at the ready, just in case. This set from VideoAviation depicts a crewman wheeling his tubular trolley that contains a large extinguisher, as well as a couple of smaller ones that are dotted around for when additional help arrives. The crew-figure is of recent vintage, wearing the kind of standard BDU trousers and tshirt that you would see on every US airbase. The set arrives in a small clear clamshell box, with the contents cocooned in bubble-wrap behind a header card. The crewman and trolley frame are 3D printed in stereo-lithographic resin (SLR), and due to their delicate nature, they are again wrapped in blankets of foam sheet, which we removed for a better look. The seven other parts are in a cream-coloured resin, with a small decal sheet and roll of flexible tube bringing up the rear plus an instruction sheet that completes the package. Construction is simple, removing the frame from the supports, gluing the wheels and large canister to the frame, then making up an extended hose with nozzle at the end using the parts provided. The spare extinguishers are each a single part, and all three have stencils applied once they are painted. The crew figure just needs his supports cutting away, and will be ready to paint once you have cleaned up any attachment marks. The printing of the figure is excellent, and well up to the standards of any traditional sculpt, which is mind-blowing (a little bit) because before printing it only existed in a computer. He scales out at just over 1.7m or around 5’8”, which is a tad small, but within the range of plausibility. Some very detailed meshes went to make him. Painting instructions are given at relevant points, offering suggestions in colour names where applicable. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  2. Luftwaffe Ground Personnel (1939-45) (32109) 1:32 ICM via Hannants This new set from ICM brings us three ground crew from the Luftwaffe. One refueling from a drum, one with a tool box and one carrying what could be an oil or water can. As with all ICM figure the sculpting and mulding is good. The set includes a separate sprue with the fuel drum, tool box etc; these is also a length of plastic refueling hose. Conclusion Another first-rate set from ICM will help bring your latest 1/32 Luftwaffe build to life. Highly recommended. Available in the UK from importers H G Hannants Ltd. Review sample courtesy of
  3. WWII British Ground Personnel (1939-1945) ICM 1:32 (32107) Figures This is ICMs figure set and while it says British it would encompass a lot of commonwealth nations as well, and possibly later than 1945. There are three ground crew engaged in doing things, while designed to complement the new Gladiator kits they would be if use in a wide Variety of kits. . All are what would be considered dressed for the period. In general the mould in crisp and clean with plenty of detail. . Like ICM's recent figures these are well sculpted and should build up well. Conclusion This is another great set from ICM and looks like a direct add on for their new Gladiator kits (though they can be used elsewhere) Highly recommended. Available in the UK from importers H G Hannants Ltd. Review sample courtesy of
  4. I have recently ordered the Academy B-29 in 1/72 and I want to put it onto a base with some figures und vehicles. For the vehicles I intended to use this upcoming Airfix set (http://www.airfix.com/uk-en/shop/vehicles/military-vehicles/usaaf-8th-air-force-bomber-resupply-set-1-72.html) although, as i want to build either the Enola Gay or Bockscar, I can`t use the bomb truck, but are the other vehicles apropriate? Also: What figures could I use? I thought of the Airfix or Preiser kit. Do you have other suggestions? Thank you in advance Levin
  5. Picture the scene: A sunny morning on a small pacific island. The groundcrew are preparing the F4U-1 Corsairs for the days operations. A couple of officers are discussing the plans before taking off. Could I use these figures in this setting?: https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/IT5618 I know it's the PT-109 crew, but wouldn't the uniforms be the same? Cheers Hans J
