1:48 scale ww2 British Paratroopers...

If memory serves, these worthies were first stocked by North Star, who subsequently sold the moulds. Can you still get them anywhere please?

Assuming these are WAY too big to fit in with the likes of Warlord 28mm ? Interesting looking figs ...

We're planning on using figures from this range for FFofL skirmishing, as in my 'umble opinion there's nowt they'll fit in with.
Much too BIG EC, there's not many Harry looks up to, but he does these lads!

I snagged some of these from Northstar when they were on sale. They are nice figures but are taller than the 1/48 Tamiya figures.

Interestingly, one of the Tamiya 1/48 German panzer figures sets is exactly the same height was Warlord 28mm while the other is slightly taller.

Yes, try Rob Broom at Scarab Miniatures.

Which set is the same as the Warlord, please?

I've just gleaned a box of 1:48 Tamiya British Infantry from fleabay. It'll be interesting to see how they match up to the big lads from Scarab?
