Master Details is back with their first ground crew figure, this one representing a typical Luftwaffe ground crewman wearing typical coveralls over cold weather undergarments. This crewman is holding a pipe with his left hand and a starter crank (typical Bf 109 type) in the right. This would look great standing next to your Hasegawa kit as this chap is calmly awaiting the call to start engines. Obviously, if an engine start is coming, you'll probably want a pilot figure in the cockpit and Master Details has released such a figure here.
While most modelers tend to pose their aircraft parked, the more advanced modelers are adding nice figures to their models to add a more dynamic element or story to their project. This figure will defnitely help to bring your next large aircraft to life!
This figure is available directly from the manufacturer at Master Details' website.
My sincere thanks to Master Details (http://www.masterdetails.com) for this review sample!
