Designed for the Aerobonus DMC Logan T-40 USAF Tow Tractor, this latest figure from Aerobonus is a single block of light grey resin that features a complete seated figure. There are no blemishes or bubbles anywhere.

The figure features a driver with a boonie cap, typical of a Vietnam era USAF enlisted personel. The resin is contained in a typical self sealing bag with a card stock backing. There are painting instructions on three pages.

Removal of the figure from the pour blocks will be easy enough. How they molded and cast these parts is simply amazing. There are lots of undercuts and plenty of room behind the driver on the seat. The parts include the seated body of the driver, two arms, and a separate head.

This figure is essential if you have the Tow Tractor and want to have it in a diorama. This would look great when attached to the tractor and then to an F-4 or F-105. Aerobonus offers quite a lot of figures to represent the Vietnam era flightline.

Highly recommended, if you have the tractor.

Thanks to Aires and IPMS/USA for the review copy. You can obtain yours by contacting Aires directly at www.aires.cz or your local hobby shop or online retailer.
