Here's a nice compliment to your favorite T-34 tank project. This is a set of figures released by Master Box a little over a year ago but still available. This set provides five crew figures depicting the T-34 in motion but the crew at ease. As usual, these figures are crisply molded making assembly and painting easy.
The set includes one driver at work, an officer perched atop the hull gun mount smoking a cigarette, one figure leaning against the turret, the main gunner sitting atop the turret in his hatch, while the tank commander keeps an eye on the situation.
This set will bring your T-34 to life without the need for any complex scenery or extras (unless you are composing a larger vignette or diorama). Add a set of Soviet Army tank riders to the engine deck and this would be a very interesting story indeed.
My sincere thanks to DML for this review sample!
