is a really nice little set of figures as it provides six tank commanders and
one standing female figure for a very reasonable price.
The figures include four figures (three full and one 3/4 figure) in coveralls
and two figures (one full and one 3/4) in black leather jackets and black
trousers. The female is in undress uniform (e.g. standard shirt and trousers
with "pilotka" sidecap) and is not dressed as a traffic regulator.
Helmeted figure heads (six included) come with the now-standard DML convention
of separate ear flaps with earphone pockets and the center portion of the helmet
molded on the figure's head. Two extra heads with "pilotka" caps are included,
and that provides some nice variety to the kit.
Each figure comes with a holster for a TT pistol as his only equipment. One at
least has his gloves in his hand to strike a more casual pose.
For the life of me I have no idea why each major manufacture seems to want to
include a female figure in many Russian sets. Not only that, most of them are
very slim, attractive types that do not seem to have been that plentiful in
forward Soviet army units. (I do recall one who was "Playboy" stunning, but as
was listed as a sergeant sniper with 93 confirmed kills would have been a "tough
date" at best! But I digress.)
Overall this is a very nice kit and a real bargain at this price. Tristar is
available from at least Chesapeake Model Designs and RZM in the US.
Thanks to Bill Miley of CMD for the review sample.
