I am looking for a good source of WW2 AMERICAN soldiers in 1/43
scale. 1/48 just doesn’t look right, as I have assembled/painted a grouping of
GIs and they looked like kids on my layout alongside the other figures and
vehicles I have. They’re no good to me.
I cannot find any good source for 1/43 WW2 US soldiers at all. I’ve
searched online extensively, including Shapeways (the closest I could find was
a group of Naval officers and sailors in dungarees, but that doesn’t work,
My layout really can use some GIs for the foreground as I have a
RR Operating Unit HQ and it looks odd to just have the vehicles sitting outside
their day room but not a single GI in sight (it doesn’t help that I’m a former
US Army officer and military historian focusing mostly on the Army in WW2,
FYI, I have zero use for toy-like stuff. The photo below will show
you have much a stickler for authenticity I am, as it extends to 1:1 scale
stuff as well:
Howdy Lee...sorry that I don't have a clue about 1:43 soldiers. However, if you chose the "dark side", 1:35 has many, many soldiers and equipment. But then, you would have to build 35n3!!! Mind boggling!
