Just got some new figures for my Tiger 1 (Tiger #823) . Found these on ebay -  Torro 1/16 German tank crew, commander & loader figures with camo smocks. Also have some accessories from Oz Armour on the way...

I use pieces of velcro tape to secure  my figures in my tanks in case I need to remove them for servicing, loading airsoft bb's or installing the IR receiver. Works good enough for my liking . Be interesting to hear what other folks do to secure their crew figures.

Couple pics of them in the tank:

Looks nice. I found velco too be a little to loose and shaky when you drive the tank. I tried to use rare earth magnets instead for tank crews.

Thanks for the tip, Mike!  

For now, the shakiness isn't too bad in my case. But your idea of magnets sounds like  a really good idea if I want to improve on the velcro later on. I'll keep that in mind.

Thanks again, Pete
