U.S. Tank Crew Summer Dress
Modeling the U.S. Army in WWII

Warriors Scale Models

These boys of summer are kicking up a racket, with the tank commander featured on the Ma Deuce. He is the sole full figure, standing in or outside the turret (depending where your .50 is placed), and is dressed like the other two crewmen in OD HBT coveralls. The hatch dwellers are partial figures; the guy with his fingers in his ears is a good touch, and might be adaptable to an artillery setting. In fact, the TC might work in a jeep or M3 halftrack.

This is one of Warrior's earlier efforts, when sculptor Rendall Patton set the standards for those who followed him. It's a very simple but effective set that will never go out of fashion.
