GMC Crew Set No.1
Gaso.Line, 1/48 scale
Reviewed by Brett Green
Gaso.Line specialises in 1/48 scale resin kits, conversions and figure sets. One of their most recent releases is a handy two-man crew for Tamiya's 1/48 scale GMC truck.
Four parts in grey resin are supplied.
Casting quality is very good. There are only a couple of tiny pin holes on the resin parts. The breakdown of the parts is very clever too. The co-driver's arm and leg are cast as one piece, ensuring a perfect fit. The poses are great, with the driver looking back as if reversing, and the co-drover with one arm in a sling and his foot on the sill of the door.
I could not resist assembling these figures. Cleanup was very fast and the two figures were completed within minutes. A little more time spent painting these figures should deliver a very satisfying result.
I took the opportunity to pose these figures in my Gaso.Line GMC Fuel Truck conversion. They will work equally well in almost any US WWII or Korean scene, and with any variant of the GMC truck.
This is a highly versatile and attractive little package that will add a ton of personality to your 1/48 scale Deuce and a Half.
Thanks to Gaso.Line for the review sample
