Does anyone know where I can obtain some WW1 British figures (including drivers) to crew up the 1/35 scale RPM Ford Model T kits, such as the MMGS?

Thanks in advance.
Phil.

Hi Phil,

I dont know of any figures that you can use oob You’ll probably have to convert some 1/35 scale WWII Germans to serve as your British! But the following may be of interest/help in that work.

I only know for sure of the Emhar figures 12 figures 6 poses and those from Model Cellar 2 sets of 2 figures each http://modelcellar.com/prod01.htm .

I haven’t seen the Model Cellar figures “in the flesh” but the pictures look good. The Emhar plastic is of the soft flexible type and the detail isn’t as crisp as that of resin or hard plastics.

The following may also be of interest to you from “Hornet Miniatures” at

HBH06 5 heads, Brit. WW1 steel helmet

HGH095 heads, Ger. WW1 steel helmet

Thank you guys for the information, but as I suspected there is not much around. It's really annoying when you can't get suitable crew figures for a vehicle kit!

Scale Link have a large range of 1/32 scale British WW1 figures, including seated driver and passenger figures, but I suspect they would be too big for use with a 1/35 scale Model T. Has anyone tried using them with 1/35 scale vehicles?

Phil.

Sorry the Scale Link figures are far too big Phil.
The easy solution just now is to convert some WW2 Germans
