PRICE: $10.95 MSRP
DECALS: none
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: A Dragon Gen2 kit


We now have a nice set of US tank riders, courtesy of Dragon. This is one of their Gen2 sets with the fine slide molded weapons and a fret of photo etch to add some detail to things. The photo etch is basically for the straps on the riles and BAR.

Dragon generally provides four figures with their figure sets and this one is no different. All are in either a sitting or kneeling pose as they would be when riding on a Sherman. All are looking rather alertly around as one would expect of a unit going into combat. The set included two main sprues for the figures and their various pieces of equipment. The three smaller sprues are mostly weapons and then, of course, there is the small photo etch fret.

These are not single piece figures and in fact have separate face and hands and feet, making for some rather complex builds. This also provides an opportunity to switch things about if one wishes. Gunze and Model Master paint references are provided as is the norm for Dragon.


I'm sure that if you are an AFV fan, this set will add just that much more to your build.
