Looking for a crew for AFV Club's new M113 ACAV? Take a look at the new figure set from Hobby Fan, offering 4 crew miniatures in 1/35 scale
HF741 - US Army M113 ACAV Crew in Vietnam War (4 figures)

The set consists of 4 resin figures: driver, commander and 2 machine gunners. As AFV Club is Hobby Fan's sister company, these are probably designed to fit AFV Club's M113, but could also be used with various other M113 kits on the market as well.

Dammit. I hate autocorrect and hitting wrong buttons on my tablet. Had to change to my pc. What I was trying to say was that I can really use a set or two of this figure set for a Tet Offensive diorama that I am building of some ACAVs from 2d BN 47th Inf (Mech) engaging enemy positions and covering their dismounts while they are engaging positions as well. I hope it will be available for purchase soon.

Nice, though the one on the right is a re-issue.

These guys are all new. Bravo6 does a track driver that is similar and Hobby Fan released a gun truck crew in like poses to the M60 gunners but they are different.

The open shirt and flak vest on the gunners are a nice touch as is the ammo can/wood floor. These guys should pair well with some of the in action Bravo6 "Rumble in the Jungle" figures. Hopefully I'll have my AFV Club ACAV completed by time these guys arrive.

Hey sgtreef - Hobby Fan already makes a few sets of Nam artillery crews. Worth looking into if you aren't familiar with them.
