KIT: Tamiya 1/48 Russian Infantry and Tank crews
KIT #: 32521
PRICE: $12.00 from Wings n' Treads
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES:  figures


With the success of Tamiya's 1/48 armor kits, it was inevitable that there would be figure sets. So far there are two German, one American and this one on Russian troops. As with the other sets, the figures have separate arms, heads, torsos and there are a bunch of accessories such as helmets, guns, packs and other accoutrements that festoon soldiers in combat. Two of these latter sprues are identical and include a Maxim 1910 machine gun. Stands are provided for those who need it and several of the figures are designed to be posed riding on the tank. It is for the tank crewmen that makes this set so valuable to me, however out of the 15 figures, only two are for a tank; a driver and commander. No problem as the other figures offer a variety of poses and, as I mentioned, some can be put riding on the tank.

A great set as is just about everything from Tamiya.
