Eduard continues their occasional pilot and
aircrew series with a new release, "VVS Fighter Crew 1944".
The kit comprises 36 parts in grey plastic,
making up a total of six figures - one pilots, four ground crew and one
All the figures are provided in relaxed poses.
They are either checking clipboards or standing casually. The pilot is
shaking hands with the officer - possibly a political Commisar?
Each figure is made up of separate arms and legs,
a torso and head. Detail is very good, with individual facial
the thumbnails below to view larger images:
These figures are nice and chunky.
I assembled the pilot figure and the Commisar,
posing them with my LaGG-3.
Prior to assembly, a few raised seam lines were
easily removed with a hobby knife. Fit was good. No putty has been used
on these figure, but some will be required to fill a significant sink
mark in the Officer's back, and to blend the parachute and the upper
body half on the pilot.
Eduard's 1/48 scale VVS Fighter Crew 1944 is a
versatile figure set that will lend a sense of scale and context to an
individual model, or a diorama, and is especially useful considering the
recent boom in WWII Soviet aircraft model kits.
Thanks to Eduard for the sample
