Finishing up an ACE 1/72 FV-101 Scorpion as a vehicle of Queen Alexandra Mounted Rifles, and lloking to try and source driver and commander figures in a dress similar to the below. Is anyone aware of suitable kit crew or aftermarket crew which would fit the bill in 1/72?

it appears that item is no longer available if I try a Buy Now. Any idea where else might have them? I tried Frindship Models website and they didn't have them listed. Wonder if they are OOP.

Appreciate the quick response - they look like thay re just the ticket.

Looks like Hanants have come through with your kit.
Don't forget to anneal the tracks before you fit/bended them.
I have not started my Scorpion, so have not looked into figures yet
But it looks like model miniature might have something?

see catalogue no. MM-R047
called 'Figures & material for M-50'
I might be off as I know zilch about post WWII stuff!

but it seems that the seller is away and suspended purchases for the time being. The message said that he would reopen two days ago, so I'd keep an eye out!

Hello Craig.

The figures are still in production we had a computer crash which lost all the info for ebay listings. We are currently redoing our website and ebay listings with better photos etc.

We are also just back from the excellent IMSS Show in Dublin. So things are a bit slower than usual, if you have any queries or requests just drop me an email. I will try and get the figures re listed today.

Cheers

Ian

Sorry to hear of your computer problems - hope you get sorted soon. Ready to order a set of Brit AFV figures when you are back in operation.

Regards,
Craig.

Craig.

Sorry to hijack the thread, but are you going to continue to sell your sherman turrets? I have'nt seen them on e-bay for a while.
