Jacques Duquette takes a look at the PLA Tank Crew meant to crew your modern Chinese tanks. These figures are in poses for parade vehicles.

Trumpeter never had a feeling for figures. Sigh...

I really thought they would do a great job on them considering the subject matter. I really expected them to put their best foot forward on these figures out of any. Not so.

It's why I ended up buying some of the resin PLA figures for my ZTZ 99. I've bought some Trumpeter figures and they occasionally rise to the level of mediocre but serviceable but that is rare.

Trumpeter is not known for quality figures. Might be worthwhile, though, just for the decals.

I hear their uniform decals are not very good in other sets so might not even be worth that!

In case it matters, the guys with helmets and soft caps are for APCs and the like as infantry and other passengers wearing helmets and caps stand up at attention in the hatches during parades.

Looking at these figures I feel I've gone back in time about 40 years.
