First Look

This figure kit goes hand in glove with the Kirin 1/35th scale Aerosan propeller driven ski-mobile (reviewed here).

It consists of 2 figures: a driver, who sits in the rear tandem seat, and a gunner, who occupies the front seat.

The driver figure consists of a separate head, hat, upper torso, arms,  lower torso (including both legs) and a pistol in a holster. He is wearing a quilted uniform and a pointed, Mongolian style hat with ear-flaps. My hat came damaged a bit with one of the ear-flaps missing. I will have to replace this with putty or some such.

The machine-gunner figure consists of a separate head, hat, upper torso, arms, lower torso (divided into 2 legs this time) and a pistol in a holster. He wears a fur cap, again with the ear-flaps and a heavy winter uniform that is unquilted with a wool collar.

The sculpting on these two figures is top notch. Dry fitting them together reveals that very little putty will have to be used, except for the butt on the machine-gunner which isn’t fully formed.

These guys will really dress up the Aerosan vehicle once they are installed in it.

The kit may be a little difficult to track down, but there are a few mail order houses that still list it.
