CGD 1/144 WW2 Luftwaffe Ground Crew
By Matt Bittner
With 3D printing really taking off, almost anything is possible. Combat Group Dynamix (CGD) is one company taking advantage of 3D printing in a big way, in primarily 1/144 scale. Not only have they released a multitude of armor in 1/144, but also small bases, diorama bases and even figures. The figure sculpting is top-notch and with the right type of painting, the figures really look life-like. In fact, CGD takes it to the next level that if you so want, they'll send you their figures, pre-painted.
Figure Set A consists of two men, hauling a bomb-laden trolley; another trolley with neither "men" nor a "bomb"; and finally five separate bombs.
Figure Set B consists of one man standing; one man kneeling; one trolley with a bomb but no men; and a bomb-laden trolley being hauled by one man.Eduard's 1/144 Czech Avia CS-92 and since that's the only aircraft on my completed shelves these figures could work with, I decided to show some of them placed around the CS-92. I think everything together looks great, and I have another Eduard Me 262 to be built that I may just create one display with that as the center piece and some of the figures surrounding it. (Or, I may use the Eduard Ju 52 and modify it into a bomber and go from there.) The options these figures can be used in are only limited by your imagination.
Huge thanks to Combat Group Dynamix for sending these figures to review.
