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.
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.
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
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
