I have just received the newly released Ultracast US Tanker (35040) Europe 1944-45. It 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 tends to be overlooked by some manufacturers.

Kevin has come through with yet another unique and superb Allied figure for his growing arsenal of figures. The above figure can be viewed at:
