Interesting review Al.
The three heads is certainly a bonus.
Could he be used as a jeep or truck driver without major surgery ??
Cheers

Hi Al,

Thanks for the review. That bandana'd head sure looks great - especially for a MTO scene.

As John asks above, I wonder if this figure could be used for other Allied vehicles? Your thoughts? I don't see why not.

With regards to the review, the only criticism I have is that I would have liked to have seen a few more pictures. I'd particularly liked to have seen more of the torso - from the front and rear.

Overall though, great review and thanks again!

Hi John and Rudi,

Input appreciated folks. Regarding use in other vehicles I would assume so, although some minor adjustment of his backside and back might be necessary, I will be checking that out when I have him built as I'm alwasy on the lookout for truck drivers, but I'm hopeful

Ask and ye shall be given a couple more shots I borrowed from the Resicast site.





Hope these help.

Al

Edit,

John,

Remember Ulracast and Dougs Originals have a driver figure specific for the Tamiya jeep.

Hey Al,
I have several of the Ultracast driver in my stash, it's a great figure but the position is kinda limited to someone relaxing behind the wheel.
I like this Resicast figure because he's actually in a driving position.

Hi John,

I have a Tamiya Jeep somewhere, if I can find it I'll check him out.
