I believe the uniforms are BEF France 1940.

These will fit brilliantly with the British column I am working on. Can't wait to get my hands on some.

Hi Bill,

You kind of jumped the gun with this one. I was awaiting product codes, cover pics and prices from Graham .

Just to clarify, my current understanding is that there will be a set of 3 figuers representing an early carrier crew (BEF period), these are depiected in the RHS series of pictuers. To follow that the figures have been altered to represent late war troops with short stabbing bayonets and kit and these will be avilable as a separate figuers and they can be seen in the bottom set of pics.

I don't have any release date yet.

Cheers

Al

Hi Gerard,

Great work, I hope you didn't mind me borrowing some pics for the review from the last set you posed up.

Nice work on the later troops, they look the business and fit just about anywhere.

Cheers

Hi folks,

I've added 5 new pics of the late war figures that Graham sent though. These are featured at the bottom of the review.

Cheers

Sorry, Al.

I was trying to jump in while James is quite busy and not wait for orders, so to speak. Isn't there a line from some British war movie about how "All initiative in subalterns will be rigorously rooted out"?

These are so unique I've bumped the thread up again.

That's partly true: Stalingrad Figures is also offering both German & Russian soldiers at rest.

In any case, it's worth a bump.

Hi Bill,

Unique as far as British Commonwealth troops go. I think Stalingrad are making some cracking Russian and German figures, I may get a few of their surrendering Germans sometime although there are already a set of Germans in plastic.

Cheers

Hi folks,

I've added the product number for the sleeping carrier crew to the review; it's 35.5625.

For the individual figuers the product numbers are:

35.5626, 35.5627 and 35.5628.

Graham has recently edited his site and the link is

http://www.resicast.com/

in case you have problems with the old one.
