Awesome figures. After seeing this I went straight to their on-line store and ordered them. Going to save all the pics to help guide my attempts at painting.

Superb stuff! I'll need to get me some for a jeep. Glad to see these over some pointing WWII Germans.

Very NICE, indeed! I've said this before on numerous occasions:

I'd love to see a series of GIs in late Spring/Early Summer-Autumn 1944 attire: M1941 Jackets, HBT or OD Wool Trousers M1938 Dismounted Leggings. I think that "Bastogne" 1944/'45 has already gotten very fair representation, and so has "D-Day June 6, 1944, especially the US Paratroopers. What we need more of is the regular GIs (and Tommies/Commonwealth troops, and of course Poles, FFI, etc in their various British Army attire) in standard US Army attire of that period. M1943 Boots are in preponderance with kit manufacturers as well as kit sculptors. The M1938 Leggings were still being worn by VE Day...

Thanks,

what uniforms are the jeep crew wearing?
Thanks, Dan


The captain is wearing 1941 jacket and trousers. The driver is wearing a tanker's jacket with the collar folded up. Quite natural, very typical and quite welcome.
