(UPDATED) Ever Noticed? Tamiya German Panzer Grenadiers
Posted by Flak88Gunner on Tuesday, November 07, 2017 9:57 PM

 

For years I wondered if I was the only one  that wondered where the tamiya artists got their inspiration for the box covers.

Flak88, afraid your going to have to find another hosting site, either that or cough up 400 bucks to Photobucket.

LOL, Interesting question.
 
The time frame would be off but it also sort of looks like Jason Isaacs:

Now I know what you meant at first!

But it can also be a coincidence. Like my tank commander - I have painted his face, than I look again and check it out - Elvis Presley!

Hey ! 

 You know you are right , besides a younger John Cleese you have a young Clint Eastwood and the fellow to the far right is amazingly reminiscent of a young Chuck Conners from the " Rifleman "

As a youngster,  I bought Tamiya kits based more on the ‘coolness’ factor of their box art than the actual subject itself.
