Not new on Tank's range, but nonetheless a very nice set of figures that'll go very well with the recent Stug III G from Dragon.

Tank's figure set German Stug Crew, Winter 1942-43 (T-35028) Includes two complete body figures depicting a Stug crew during Winter around 1942-43

Oh no, another 'must have' set of figures that I did not know about... My wallet has just gone into hiding, joining the Credit Card which ran off long ago. Ha, I'll find a retailer who accepts paypal...

Congrats on your first job as editor Antonio.

Thanks guys,

Now I just have to start and finish the Stug . All of a sudden it jumped from the bottom of the stash to the top position (eh eh).

Thanks for the review. It's always nice to see how my competitions
cast their figures. The quality of the figures is just outstanding!

oooh the sculptor of my other favorite brand .
You are partly responsible for my kit stash. I liked your OIF crew so much that I bought it right away. Then I had to find the tanks to put them. I started to buy more tanks, and more figures. I have (1.5 year) 22 tanks in the stash and I don't know how many figures.
When I said they compared well with high quality releases from other manufacturers I was exactly thinking of the figures I bought from Alpine.
When I look at these figures, with this level of detail, I just try to imagine how it is possible to sculpt a thing of this size.... And I can't figure out how. I'll keep trying to make justice to the work of the sculptor. Hopefully I can.

Mike,
Modelpoint USA is listed as distributor for Tank and Alpine Miniatures. Tank Miniatures is also a site sponsor.

I believe this is what you wanted.

Jeff

Great review Antonio, I need a crew for my Stug III F, also from Dragon. I just wanted to know where the tank rider figures are from, they look really good as well.

Keep on reviewing!

Antonio, you are absolutely right.

TANK´s figures are the most awesome figures, I ever bought (and Alpine )
I have all other sets of german tankers (Panther´s and Tiger´s).

For all of you who want to buy them in US, check www.ww2-resources.com
