Jakrei continues to feed the need for good Allied figures with another British Desert Tanker. We take a look at whats in the box.

He's a real beaut Keith. Looking at the photo of the diassambled parts, do the edges of his boot soles have mud or is it just flash that needs removal?

Hi brad

its just a little bit of casting flash, i could have cleaned it all up but i would rather you see how it comes out of the box as is.

cheers

Hi Brad,

If you leave his pistol off he'd fit in a lot of situations. I'm not much on painting figs, but here he is with a couple of mates and some paint.



Cheers

Good review Keith.



If you could find a replacement John Mills head you could put him leaning on a bar with a glass of Carlsberg in his hand you could do an "Ice Cold in Alex" vignette
Here he is with Jakrei's other Desert Tanker

Nice looking figs.
