Ultracast's latest 1/35 scale WWII crew figure is a relaxed American sitting on the turret of his Sherman tank.

The figure is supplied in three easy pieces - a body with integrally cast legs and arms, a separate head and a left hand. Casting is as delicate and gorgeous as usual. The fine details of the hands deserve particular mention. However, there is a little flash and resin waste to clean up from the main figure part.

The pose is relaxed and natural. The drape of the fabric is very convincing. Facial expression is equally good.

This new figure will be a nice way to dress up your Tamiya or Italeri Shermans. He will also compliment Ultracast figure 35023 (reviewed earlier on HyperScale) leaning against the other side of the Sherman turret

Recommended.
