Crew Chief Sets
Videoaviation 1:32

The latest releases from Videoaviation.com these three sets of figures for USAF and USN based dioramas/vignettes. Each set is manufactured in a creamy beige resin which is really well moulded and detailed. Two of the sets include two figures of crew chiefs, one for the USN and one for the USAF, the middle set only has one figure, but does include a useful piece of equipment for your vignette or diorama.

[153632] Includes two figures of US Navy crew chiefs. The first is a single piece moulding of the chief standing with his hands behind his back, whilst the second figure, comes in four parts with separate arms and a line pouch. Although separate the arms look like they can only be posed with the right arm in a salute and the left arm straight down the side. The instructions do come with a couple of colour photos showing the helmet colours used. The rest of the uniform needs to be researched, but the instructions do give colour callouts for the various parts of the uniform.

[153732] Also contains two figures, this time of crew chiefs in the USAF. Once again there is one single piece figure with his hands behind his back. The second figure is moulded with a single piece body, but with separate arms and a screwdriver, and can be posed as if he were fitting or removing a panel. The instructions provide a picture of part of the uniform in colour showing, in close-up, the digitised nature of the camouflage.

[153832] This final set comes with only one figure, but with a very useful prop. The figure is a crew chief of the USAF and comes as a single piece moulding of the body, but with separate arms and is posed leaning over a laptop computer, (provided as two parts). The laptop sits on top of a tool chest, which is made up of the box, separate front, and four casters. The set is further detailed with the addition of a pair of battery drills. The instructions include the same detailed colour close-up of the uniform camouflage.

Conclusion
If you’re going to build a one of the amazing 1:32 aircraft on the market you may want to give it even more of a lift by placing it a diorama. For that you will need personnel such as these, and you really can’t go wrong with Videoaviations releases, as they are of superb quality and provide those little details that aren’t usually noticed. Very highly recommended.
