Ultracast 1/35th-scale American
Tank Crewman 1944-45 (35040)
by Mark Bannerman
The Ultracast US Tanker (35040) Europe 1944-45 is one of two new US offerings.
The figure is all resin, with separate right arm and head. Superbly sculpted
and the attention to detail is in the usual high Ultracast quality. The
folds, seams around pockets, zipper, detail and pose are spot on. Clean
up requires snipping off the sprue under the figures boots and removing
flash in between the legs. No pits, no bubbles, and superbly cast.
The head is very well done and typical of Ultracast with
nicely done facial features. The exposed right hand is well defined and
the helmet looks accurate and very well sculpted. The figure is true to
1/35th scale and Ultracast continues to pay close attention to dimension/size/anatomy
right down to the most minute of details, which tend to be overlooked
by some manufacturers.
Kevin has come through with yet another unique and superb Allied figure
for his growing arsenal of figures.
