American Gasoline Loaders 1910s (24018)

1:24 ICM via Hannants

Designed to complement their Ford Model T Delivery truck in the same scale, which we reviewed last year here, this two figure set from ICM comes in a small box with captive lid on the tray.  There are three sprues inside, one holding the parts for the figures, the other two identical and holding the canisters that they will be moving.  The figures are split down with separate heads, hats, legs, arms and torsos, with a couple of forearms separated out to achieve the desired pose and keep the detail.  On fine gentleman is dressed in dungaree-style overalls and a flat cap, hefting a large canister, while the other crouches within in the van's load bed with his hands forward ready to accept it, wearing a similar cap, a shirt and ¾ length trousers with socks and shoes.

Sculpting is excellent with tons of detail moulded in and realistic drape and creasing to the fabric parts.  Although substantially larger than my usual 1:35 figures the level of detail included has been increased accordingly so that they don't look bland.  This is especially evident in the hands and faces, which have superb detail and are different enough so that they don't look like they came out of a mould, even though they did!

Highly recommended.
