Tamiya Aircraft 1/48 WWII USN Pilots (8) w/Moto-Tug Kit
This figure set depicts a tense pre-mission briefing and you can almost hear the squadron leader say "Remember to avoid dogfights against the Zero. Use hit-and-run tactics from above and behind to take them out." The U.S. Navy's aircraft carrier forces played a large role in the defeat of the Japanese forces in WWII, and this model kit reproduces a scene from the deck of one of these flat tops. The pilots are depicted in tropical uniforms and life jackets as they hunch over a plotting board prior to their next mission. Two deck crew figures and a moto-tug with driver are also included to further liven things up, and these figures can be paired with 1/48 scale models of U.S. Navy aircraft such as the Corsair in dynamic dioramas.
- Set includes 5 pilot figures, 2 deck crew figures, and a moto-tug with driver.
- Pilots feature tropical uniforms and life jackets.
- Moto-tug comes with two types of towing bars, one for an aircraft's main wheels and the other for an aircraft's tailwheel.
