Right, and left foot needs to be fitted with pedals. To be precise adjustment is required. Just stand the tank crew on the back engine panel is much easier. The right is fighting spirited soldier loading ammunition. I needed microscopic adjustment for both hands. Both heads are changed to Hornet resin parts. I love the Hornet figures line up, I would like to have the collection of all headsets…
Vulcan model’s face mold is also good compared to other injection kits.

Regarding figures, I painted Mr.Hobby’s fresh and it’s too much whitish. Considering they are fighting in North Africa, skin color should be a little more tanned.
