Our truck driver now becomes a gunner! A mix and match test to see how well the prototype figures will match with our existing vehicles... not bad at all!









Comment?

Really nice looking figures . I like the optional poses for the gunner figure . I hope you can give us this type of option in other vehicle and crew figures you produce .

That's the plan for our "all new" projects.  Current and on-going projects can't be done because of production schedule, but will try to do an add-on along the line.

We had spend over six months just to get familiar with our new digital sculpting workstations, and we are starting to see some positive results.  2016 will be an exciting year with a new product range to complement our current vehicle range!

:D

Had one lucky oppertunity  to be in an halftack at Staverton airdrome oh so long ago, she had a pulpit the firing position would be close to 2.

The figure looks good in the M 10 . But he's not really the gunner , HE sits further forward in the turret . The seat your guy is on is for the commander or loader , I forget who sat on which side  ::) .  But  with a little work with razor saw and file I'm sure I could get a full 3 man crew in that turret . All I need is 3 seated lower bodies  , well done Rubicon

He's on the loader's seat - the gunner sat in the forward left side of the turret.  The driver figure is going to be useful as a tank crewman.  The gunner figure is wearing webbing and ammo pouches, which was rare on a tank crewman.

Don't be too serious!  This is a "mix-and-match" test to see how well our figures with go with other vehicles other than the truck.  We only have 3 prototype figures, therefore not much choices!

The point is - if you want these figures to be more versatile, leave the webbing off.  But they look great as they are.

This is the GMC CCKW dedicated sprue.  Still in TS1 stage awaiting test fit and assembly report.  Much work have to be done on it, but overall quality is satisfactory.












Visual comparison of the plastic figures with our 3D printed prototype:






Enjoy!

It's hard to discern the detail properly on that light coloured plastic, but from what I can see it's good.  And the figures are noticably better than your earlier figures.  Looks good!

It is a long learning curve to make good figures, technically.  3D print and plastic from the actual mould are very different.  Need to make adjustments as we progress.  ;)

This is our painted TS1 plastic GMC Truck.  There are still some minor touch up work needed to improve ease-of-assembly, other than that, almost done!









































Enjoy!
