These look nice . Again great potential for kit bashing . Hoping to see more sets like this for the Russians and Germans as well . Is that radio pack WW2 or post war ? I had one like it for my GI Joe back in the early 60s , but then lots of WW2 equip did last through the 60s....

The radio looks like the SCR-300, which is WW2.

Will these be metal or resin?

Figures will be in metal.

True , but the observation team looks to be multi part resin or plastic , so I was hoping . I really can't see picking up more than one set if metal , if plastic , I'ld get 3 or 4 because of the kit bashing posabilties .

I agree, Ripley.  But having seen their metal figures up close, the detail is better than the plastic figures.

I was hoping as well, because if they were going to be plastic, I would get 3 or 4 sets because of the kit bashing/conversion possibilities. Instead, I'm not sure if I will even get one since I already have some good US forward observers teams (in plastic).

I'm fairly sure it's Rubicon's intention to produce figures in metal and plastic. There are clearly adherents to both so hopefully everyone will be happy eventually.

That’s because it’s a 3D printed prototype and not the finished metal

The Boiling Vessel is a distinctive feature of British vehicles and the envy of the world! Though we have to store the milk in the American's walk in fridges....

Good to see work on this, we will need helmets with and without heads. I must have a look at  Warrior 183.

Looks good . Don't forget to add the headphone flaps

I can't find any good pictures of the helmets with headphone flaps attached , was it a separate piece of kit or was it a part of the helmet ? Never really thought about it before  :-[ just built the figures OOB

Very few actually wore the helmet though. Crews hated it. Probably a contributing factor in the higher deaths and casualties than the US in the same tanks.
