F i r s t l o o k

While we are still bombarded with a very large number of German WWII figures, there are still only a few manufacturers like Warriors and Yanks who realize that the Germans did not fight the Second World War by themselves. Any new US or other nation's figures are very welcome, and Royal Models from Italy has a really nice figure of a kneeling tanker pouring from a five gallon can. The figure is well animated and the nine parts (three for the gas can, six for the figure) permit posing him either flat on the ground or slanting on the back of the deck of a tank. The figure has on the tanker's helmet and leggings, with the standard uniform and tanker's jacket.

Overall, a nice effort, and one which will compliment any tank or diorama.
