Hecker and Goros has released two sets of three 1/72 scale crew figures
for Revell's big new Type VIIC U-Boat.
The figures are each presented in one piece, cast
beautifully in white metal and ready to paint. There are no seam lines or
casting connections on any of the figures in my review samples.
Packaging is compact but stout, with each figure
residing in a separately sealed section of a plastic bag. This ensures
that the figures are not damaged during delivery.
Both sets include one officer and two crew. Set KSHG
200 has one figure in full oilskins; while KSHG 201 features a figure
standing on the rail of the periscope mount. This figure has a cutout on
the rear designed to snugly fit against the appropriate part on the Revell
kit. If you don't want to place the figure in this location, it would be
quite a simple matter to fill the cavity.
Please note that in the photos, the figures have not
been prepared or cleaned up in any way, and are standing on their own two
feet straight from the bag. The only exception is the figure designed to
be mounted on the periscope base.
Although the figures are designed especiallyfor the new 1/72
scale Revell U-Boat, they will be equally appropriate for the S-Boats from
Revell or Airfix, or any other 1/72 scale Kreigsmarine subject.
These figures will be a terrific finishing touch for
your big U-Boat, lending context and a sense of scale.
Thanks to Hecker & Goros for the review sample.
