First Look

Master Details is back with the first decent 1/32 resin USAF ground crew figure I've seen to date, this one representing a typical ground crewman wearing a t-shirt, BDU pants, ear protection, and an anxious expression while clearly waiting on the pilot in her aircraft. This is also the first modern US military female ground crew figure in resin that I've seen (I recall a styrene one in one of the 1/32 kits). When I saw the painted up preview of this figure last week, I was really impressed as I've seen that expression on the flightline before.

USAF Ground Crewman

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 would definitely look great posed off the nose or alongside the boarding ladder waiting on the pilot.

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!
