Master Details 1/32 USAAF Waist Gunner

KIT #: 32064
PRICE: $17.49 from www.masterdetails.com
DECALS: none required
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Resin and metal.

Master Details has been producing figures for USAAF bombers over the last year or so and this one adds to that collection. Thanks to various Chinese manufacturers who have started producing these kits in 1/32 scale, the need to provide crew members has arisen for those who like crewed aircraft.

This one is typical Master Details' work in that you are provided with the basic parts of the figure in resin and the rest in cast metal. The main figure body comes with an alternate left arm so you can have a variety in poses. You also get two heads. One is wearing an O2 mask while the other is not. A separate mask is provided in cast metal along with an easily flexed hose. To aid in casting a separate parachute pack is provided as the gunners did not always wear these.

The casting on both the metal and resin parts is top notch and you'll find construction will be quite easy. A full set of illustrations is provided to assist with painting this one. A very nice addition, especially if you are going to build one of these big bombers.
