Star Wars Hangar Crew & Equipment Vo.IV (72004 & 07219-1/72)

You've probably heard of Star Wars just like you've also probably heard of Bandai, so if you put those two together you've probably also heard of GreenStrawberry and if you haven't you're about to, so prepare your wallet for a shock when you see all the lovely sets that are available.  GS as I call them for my ease produce all sorts of accessories and detail upgrades for Sci-Fi subjects in general and Star Wars is one that features heavily on their menu.  This latest batch of sets are great for the diorama builder that wants to put their ships into a human scale on the ground, and we reviewed the first issue here a while back, which is now augmented by these new sets.

 

Each set arrives in a small black-themed card box with CGI rendered sticker on the front showing the contents.  Inside the resin is ziplok bagged and has a small instruction sheet where appropriate.

 

 

Hangar Crew Vol.IV (72004)

Three figures are included in this set, each of them attached by the soles of their boots to their casting blocks and their arms standing up by their sides, all surrounded by wafer-thin supports  to aid the ingress of resin and egress of bubbles.  There are also some wisps of resin adhering to the parts where the moulds have been split, and these can be removed with your fingertip or a sharp blade.  These folks are all pilots dashing to their ships, presumably during a squadron scramble, and are in action poses as befits the occasion.  Two are running, one of which is adjusting his helmet as he goes, and the third figure is clambering up his boarding ladder with the usual butt-out pose adopted to balance while climbing aboard.  Only the helmet-adjuster has his arms moulded in place, so there is some room for adaptation of their arms to suit your needs, which might be useful for the ladder climbing chap.

Hangar Equipment Vo.IV (07219-1/72)

Like the previous sets, this one includes a set of five boxes of various types and sizes and you will have seen a couple of those in previous sets if you've been paying attention.  There are two rounded-edge boxes with horizontal lines engraved in their sides, a flat stackable box with an irregular outline, a box with fluted protective vanes all over it, and finally a pack of four cylinders on a palette.  Very useful for background clutter that accumulates on even the most fastidiously clean hangar decks and gives a diorama that lived-in look.
