Just posted, another Review of another of Tamiya's 1/48th scale range. This time, the subject is a highly-versatile set of U.S. infantry - .MM # 13 - U.S. Army Infantry G.I. Set. The Review can be seen:

If anything, Tamiay is certainly consistent with their previous figure set releases - they're still generally undersized. More like 1/50 - 1/52 scale. They make a jeep (oops! light vehicle!!) look like a 3/4 ton Dodge!

Would the uniforms of the figures (at least some of these) look in place for some landing in the Solomons/New Guinea area in late 43? Showing the army troops which were also used, not the marines, storming down the ramp of a HobbyBoss LCM 3..
