Italeri 1/35 PT Boat Crew

Reviewed May 2015
by Timothy Dike
 Italeri has a new boat crew for its 1/35th scale PT boat. 
Ten new figure's on two sprues are included to man all the positions on the ship.  Crew members are molded with world war two era uniforms including life jackets and battle helmets.  Detail is quite good and each crew member is composed of several parts.  Helmets are molded separate as our arms and legs.  Poses can be modified slightly with a little work.

The back of the box includes painting instructions for the figures. Four pages show the parts and assembly.

It is nice to see Italeri offering detailed crew members for their recent kit.  Especially ones is nicely detailed as these.  Even figure modelers will be happy painting and detailing these.
