I have just received three recently released figures from Ultracast of
Canadian /British Tank Crewmen for review and all I can say is "WOW - I am
The first figure "Canada/British Tank Crewman" number 35036 depicts a seated
crewman in typical woolen khaki garb with left leg outstretched and elbow
resting on bent right leg.
The figure is all resin, with separate arms and head. Superbly sculpted and the
attention to detail is tremendous. The folds, seams around pockets, detail and
pose is just right on. Clean up requires placing the figure on an emery board
and rubbing off the small excess of resin under the outstretched leg and a

Kevin is unquestionably one of the finest sculpturers in the business and he
really has come through with yet another unique and superb set of figures for

from Ultracast, never heard anyone complain about Ultracast's products or
service and he always follows through with releases that directly answer to our
continued cries for more allied figures.
