Modeling the Sherman Tank in 1/72nd Scale

US Truck Crew WW II
Kit #F72144

Truck Crew? Well, yes, but US figures are so uncommon in this scale that I think these guys will be highly valuable in any diorama depicting US armor. The standing figures are very tall, probably around 25-26mm with their heads attached, which I feel is a little bit too tall for the scale, but when mixed in a scene with smaller figures, they'll likely look pretty decent. Unfortunately the poses are a bit bland, with the guys just standing around talking about the weather. Uniforms are nicely rendered and could pass for tank crew as easily as truck crew. I hope CMK continues with their releases of Allied figures.
