U.S. Army Tank Crew
Modeling the U.S. Army in WWII


If you see these four guys on the hobby shelf, run for the exit. Or better yet, look for DML's U.S. Tank Crew on your way out. Tamiya offered these guys as their initial American figures back in the late 1960s and periodically reissue them. The box art looks so good that this should actually be crime of misleading packaging. I bought a set when I first got back into the hobby and while they may have been marginally acceptable then (mainly because there were no other options), they have no redeeming features now. They are chunky, clunky, and best left to the seven-year-old crowd.
