Thanks for the review. I just got these guys in the mail last night.

It's amazing how well these figures capture the look of exhausted tankers. I don't know how Vlad did it but these figures are capable of evoking emotions from the viewer. You look at them and you truly feel for them.

That said, I had a little trouble with the loader figure. His left hand is molded to this thigh which didn't fit well with the arm. The wrist seemed a little too small/narrow for the hand and will require a little putty and/or a PE watch to fix.

My only other criticism, and it's minor, is that the commander appears to be responding to something behind him while the loader and gunner are stoically facing forward, unaware of whatever it is he's looking at.
