    This box might be interesting for you guys, apart that it shows women at war, you have a decent pilot and a mascot ... all in styrene!

    Looks great Ivan, i will soon be needing some more personnel. I am running out of these figures. I can use tank mechanics for the Luftwaffe black men but pilots are pilots and there aren't many different ones around. Besides, the late war pilots had different uniforms.

    They don't look bad at all, but the scale is a bit conflicting vis a vis 1/32nd scale aircraft IMHO Sad

    One thing that always bewildered me is why AFV's are in 1/35th and Aircraft in 1/32nd Sad ??????????

    Ha ha Ray that is a long story, ask MrTamiya about it! It was a mix up made by Tamiya engineers some many moons ago ... pity it was never rectified!

    Most 35th scale go well with 32nd. It depends on the company who produces the models. Some 35th are oversize and may be considered to be 32nd scale but some guys are really small. i bought a box of Tamija figures in 35th scale and they were really small but another crew from Master Box Ltd. and also Verlinden were unmistakably at home with 32nd scale figures. So it actually depends. I think that a fine line separates the two scales. The 35th scale kettenkrad i used with the Me262 also looked good and that was a Dragon model.
