Help needed - UK sailors and gasoline drums
« on: July 23, 2015, 10:14:02 AM »
Hello all

I need some brittish sailors in shorts and shirt for a ww2 project, situated in the mediterranean.
I have some from Pulp figures but from what i know the uniform goes untill 1941 and they are all in trousers and long sleve shirts.
Any help on manufacturers in 28mm?
Ideas to transform other figures are also welcome.

Also looking for gasoline drums and ammo crates and supplies (cheap because i will need a lot) preferably all from a european supplier.

Thanks all

Rui

Does the perry figures have the equipment sculped on the shirt?
I mean the ammo pouches.

Dans les situations critiques, quand on parle avec un calibre bien en pogne, personne ne conteste plus. Y'a des statistiques là-dessus.
