    British Patrol Squad

    After completing several WWII British tank models, I got motivated to work on a nicely done 5-member British Army patrol squad made by Tamiya.
    Following assembly of each figure I glued on all of the equipment and firearms. A lot of detail painting was required but the end result was worth the effort.

    Nice.
    Perfect for a Normandy ambush diorama.
    A MG42 nest on the side of the road and that’s it!

          Tim,

          Very nice figures.

          I might send my tank crews over to you for skillful attention.

            As for the stash of unbuilt/unpainted figures, the hardest part of doing them is simply getting started. I speak from experience!

              I was curious as to how much improvement has taken place in the sculpting of 1/35th scale plastic figures.

              As a comparison to the fairly recent Tamiya set of the WWII British patrol squad I dug out a Tamiya set of British troops in tropical gear that came out in 1973.
              The sculpting of facial features and uniform creases as well as other details has been greatly improved over the past 45 years.

                    Overall, not only has the sculpting of these plastic 1/35th scale figures improved, but the posturing of the figures has become much more realistic, moving away from the stiff postures particularly prevalent with tank crewmen in the past.
