This kit contains two figures, a man and women in sporty attire. The figures are a nice companion to ICM's Model T 1913 Speedster American Sport Car, kit no. 24015. For this review I posed them with ICM's Model T Touring Car.

The kit comes in a 10 x 7 1/2 x 1 1/2 light cardboard box with a slip cover with box art. The box top includes a painted rendering of the two figures and artistic suggestion for painting of the figures. The instructions come on a single 8 1/4 x 11 1/4 sheet with the sprue layout and color list on one side and the assembly diagrams and painting instructions on the reverse side.

Both figures come on one sprue molded in a medium gray plastic. The parts of the figures have nice detail, although slightly soft. There are some rough spots in the plastic on the figures faces, and there are mold seams that will need to be cleaned up. Both the man and woman have nice facial expressions. The woman looks quite surprised, and the man looks like he's yelling.

The woman fits together fairly well although filler was required at most of the joints. She is wearing a flowered bonnet with a scarf that is molded to appear like it's blowing in the wind. Sculpting of the face, bonnet, and scarf are good. Some sculpting of the bonnet and the woman's head are necessary for them to fit convincingly. The overall impression is very nice.

The man is wearing a sporty coat with calf-high boots, and a cap with goggles. I added a photoetch strap for the goggles as none was provided with the kit. The man assembles in nine pieces and some filler putty is required at the joints. I had to change the position of the arms and one leg to fit in the Touring Car.

Summary

These are some nice figures with interesting poses and nice detailing of the clothes. There are some rough spots in the castings and sculpting is required on the woman's bonnet to get a good fit. I did not test the figures in ICM's American Sort Car, but they fill nicely into the Model T Touring Car. These figures would be a nice addition to any of the ICM Model Ts.

Thanks to ICM for producing these nice figures and providing review samples to IPMS.
