Modeling the Sherman Tank in 1/72nd Scale

British Tank & Armored Car Commanders
Kit #5

Article by Doug Chaltry; last updated 22 March 2008.

One of Milicast's better sets, this one is pretty well done, and represents a fairly rare topic. The figures are 1/76th scale, and since none of them are standing, I can't measure total height. The only figure here I dislike is the one in the upper right with the helmet; it appears that his head had been cut from another figure and pasted to this torso, but the pasting job was not great, with a large gap in the neck. Other than that exception, the other figures are well sculpted in typical tank commander poses. These guys will work equally well with Polish and Commonwealth armies as well.

There appears to be a figure missing from the lower sprue, and I can't find him anywhere. So it looks like this set actually includes seven figures, all but one (theoretically) to be placed in an open hatch.
