Now tell me how did you order them I would normally get them through Coastal Craft at one of the model shows but that’s not happening any time soon can I order directly from Al. 🤔

 

The details look very crisp just as good as the 1/72 stuff I have

There are a number of options thought they may take a bit of searching

 

Italeri 1/35 5616 WWII British Royal Navy Vosper MTB Crew (7 Figures)

Yeah I have the Italeri figures on order, but as I’m building a med boat I’m not sure whether they’ll get used this time around. Same reason I haven’t yet bought the wee friends figures. I may end up converting some miniart jeep crew.

It would just be great to get some more naval figures in 1/35

Good on you

 

One point I will mention. Many discard figures in heavy weather for Med use. In fact the med can be be cold in winter or at night, I speak from experience

 

Good luck

Thanks 👍

 

I have spent time in coastal North Africa and the levant in all seasons, and getting snowed on in Algiers came as a surprise, so I can appreciate that it’s not all sun and margaritas. Having recently reread MGB658 I am mindful of the huge variety in uniform and battle dress, as well as wet weather gear, so aim to capture that mix if I can

Thank you "satisfied customer" - however, I'm not a fan of blown-up photos of castings because it exposes the flaws!! 😉

Rob

Presently, the 1/144 sets are only available from Model Dockyard (Thanks Nick!). The range needs to grow and become established before it's of interest to other retailers.

My days of working seriously in 1/32 and 1/35 ended in the 1980s!

 

However, I have the Italieri Vosper Crew - very disappointing (particularly having regard to the price).  Thread here:

 

I suggest that a better starting point is a set (or two) of Hornet heads from Historex Agents (or Ultracast in Canada)

https://historexagents.com/#HBH/8  and then look to Mini Art or Masterbox sets of figures that can be converted by simply filing off uniform detail (for example the Mini Art set of Afrika Korps tank crew appears to have potential for RN crew in the Med - they're bare-chested figures in shorts)


 

Again thanks for the support and kind comments.

 

Al

Flaws?  What flaws?  Damned if I could see any!
