Modeling the Sherman Tank in 1/72nd Scale

British Tankers
in Berets
Kit #85

Article by Doug Chaltry; last updated 26 May 2008.

As of now, this is my new favorite set from Milicast. Five very sharply sculpted figures with crisp and clean detail. The uniforms have realistic folds, and the utility belts and pouches are molded with excellent relief. The figures are very tall, being 24-25mm with boots and berets, making them excellent for 1/72nd scale, but a bit too tall I feel for 1/76th. I plan on using these as Polish tank crew, though I think the Poles usually wore their berets a little bit differently, slanted more to the rear instead of the side.
