more 25mm than 20mm? British dismounted tank crew

Post by CarlL »

These figures look good collection of poses, possibly best suited to skirmish level gaming or where you need to show the tank crew have 'legged' it?
There is a full review over on Plastic Soldier Review website at http://www.plasticsoldierreview.com/review.aspx?id=2780
So I wont steal their thunder but leave you with a taster of these: Orion, Set 72057, British Tank Crew (Summer Dress).
There are 12 poses. PSR describes the plastic as medium consistency, and their average height as 24.5mm, so not 20mm scale.
The PSR website has three photo strips to show all poses, I have borrowed one of those strips below.

The box set contains 48 figures.

PS is that a Jerry can he is carrying rather than a British flimsy?

20mm has always been 'foot to eye'........ most of the sets on PSR are around 24/25mm overall.

Shame that this set is all 'desert' kit and not a mix with trousers aswell as shorts.........

Yes Carl it is a Jerrycan, any that were captured were used.
Any thing bigger than 6 is TOO BIG

Just acquired a set - they look lovely
What's the point of doing one period, when you can do them all.......... In life most people specialise so gradually they know more and more about less and less so eventually they know everything about nothing. I work on a broad front so eventually I'll know nothing about everything.
