Ideal for those who can't or won't handle those tricky IBG tracks!

And they come with figures, too!

Their 1/72 M4A1 I scaled out to actually be 1/68 scale; I liked it and it built fine despite the odd scale. I wonder what scale this model will be.

From the PSC main page:

"We will be releasing a Carrier conversion kit in the Autumn with parts to build the Machine Gun, Mortar, Armoured Observation Post, Wasp flamethrower and early Bren/Scout carriers, as well as more crew figures in desert uniforms with head options for early tin helmet, Aussie slouch hat and Sikh turban and further stowage."

Scale issues or not, I'm going to be very busy for the next few months!

Unless they stuff up the Scale too badly or the tracks look awful
3 Brens per box & now a crew/wasp/early conversion set coming after
I'm in, even with 3 IBG Brens already
Be rude not too!

Where do people buy PSC kits from?

Cheers Elliott

Hi Elliott,

If you can't get them from your local store, you can buy them direct from http://theplasticsoldiercompany.co.uk/ or from places like maelstrom games http://www.maelstromgames.co.uk/

Maelstrom have good sales now and again, but their PSC range is a bit patchy (though they'd probably get them if you asked).

Ebay is full of them too.

Most have reasonable rates to us in the Southern hemisphere. From all sellers you have to be careful to confirm it's the 20mm/1:72 stuff you want, vs their extensive and similarly packaged 15mm/ 1:100 wargaming range.

Cheers,
Graham

PS I have not forgotten the Churchill NA 75 for which you supplied me some spare parts last summer.

Without doubt PSC have got the right idea, maximise a product! I have just got the 251 halftrack set, 3x in a box, okay so they are a little simplyfied compared to Dragon and Co but they take a heck of a lot of work off you and leave you free to add details to taste. I will buy the Bren carriers just out of curiosity to check the scale and details.

These look much more sensible than the IBG kits.....I need to build over a dozen!

Let us know of any progress on the NA75!

I think I'll just go through JADAR, not aware of anyone down here stocking PSC

Stephen,

I didn't see any mention of scale deviation with the PSC M4A1 in the excellent preview you published at OTW. Prehaps you might consider making an update as I think it is an issue well worth mentioning...

I haven't bought any of their vehicle kits, but I did buy a set of soldiers. Their poses were outstanding (where else can you get a guy with a PIAT?), but their size was just too big when compared with 1/76 or other 1/72 soldiers. Someone send them an accurate ruler!
