  1. M60A1 Tank Commander Figure 1:35 HobbyFan/AFV Club This Hobby Fan resin figure is released to coincide with the release of AFV Club's new M60A1 kit reviewed earlier here, and should fit the hatch perfectly, as shown on the boxtop. It arrives in a large card box with the contents pictured on the front fully built and painted to guide you, while the resin parts are cocooned in a long length of bubble-wrap around a Ziploc bag. The figure is split into four parts, with the body having moulded-in legs and a pistol strapped to his chest over his uniform. The arms are separate, as is the head, which sports a "bone-dome" of the period with build-in comms evidenced by the slightly bulged ear covers and boom mic against his cheek. All parts are very well moulded in a cream coloured resin, and have sensible mounting points to their casting blocks that will mean minimal clean-up before construction. Each part has a long pin that fits into corresponding holes in the torso, which should obtain a good joint with a little test-fitting before gluing, but as is always the case with figures, you might need a little filler to reduce the appearance of the joints, even if they occur on natural seams such as the shoulders. A neck scarf/t-shirt helps to hide the join between the head and body, which is useful, and the shoulder joints are aligned with seams as alluded to earlier. Don't forget to wash the parts in warm soapy water to remove the excess mould release agent, as my sample was rather greasy to the touch, and this could affect paint adhesion in a major way. Conclusion A really nicely sculpted figure that has been tailored to fit the new kit from AFV Club, filling the cupola well, and without any of the tedium of adapting the pose to suit its intended resting place. The price is about right for the individual figure these days too. Can we have a driver figure too please? Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of UK Distributors for
  2. AEC Matador Crew Hobby Fan 1:35 If you fancy building a diorama or vignette using the AFV Club AEC Matador, reviewed HERE, then you might like to use these figures from AFV Clubs subsidiary Hobby Fan. The small flip top box contains four resin figures, each in a different pose. There is one driver and three troops for the rear seating, two seated and one standing, leaning over the sideboard. The two seated could be used elsewhere, such as the co-drivers position, should you so wish. The mouldings are very highly quality with a superb amount of detail, and although the torso and legs are moulded as one piece the arms and heads are separate, allowing the modeller to pose them as required although some modification will be required to the tunic. All four figures are also provided with separate helmets. Hopefully Hobby Fan will bring out some other figures for the Matador thus allowing more possibilities. Very highly recommended.
