Would LOVE to see these come to fruition, especially the deck crew.

Would really love to see these figures in my stash. We really need some ground crew figures, from the current conflicts and especially from Vietnam.

 

How about a figure of Harv loading some stores on a Phantom!!!!

How about SEATED pilot and gunner figures and standing gunners from World War One?. So we can put them in the WW1 aeroplanes we have.

There were really interesting clothes that the pilots wore. The British Sidcot for example. Each adversary had their own idea of cold weather pilot clothing.

WWI figures sound great also ... I'm thinking of that crazy bear coat worn by Alexander Riaboff in the very cold steppes of Russia.

 

But back to what we saw... 3D scanning makes things a lot easier and much more accurate. We should see a big increase in what could be done. Take 50 photos of yourself from every angle, send it to the cloud and you could be that figure.

Ok, while we're at it, a loooong cry in the wild: have been looking for some 1/35 figures representing korea era figures, especially medical personel, male, female, with all the fixings, to "fill up" a large MASH diorama.

Found some ancient italeri figures, bearing stretchers, but that's it.

Oh wait, sorry, i'm not trying to hi-jack the thread, but it might lead to some results, right??


everyone in the circuit switch off your radios....now switch 'em back on again......

Really nice, but selling them would be a different matter.

There are a bunch of sets of standing and seated WW1 pilots and gunners. I believe Wings Cockpit Figures has an entire line of them Stephen. They were available from MDC, or straight from the manufacturer.

I'd be all over deck crew figures and such. I never could understand why figure companies like Tamiya didnt make them to begin with.

Model cellar has also a line of WW 1 figures. In fact, figures from the Great war seem to be the most common and easy to find.

Probably because 25 to 50 unit sales is not enough to make it worthwhile, I have somebody who could sculpt all these figures brilliantly but the numbers you would need to sell just don't add up.

Inquiring minds want to know, how many figures do you have to sell (of each different figure) to make it worth while?

Hi Mike

 

I do not know if your question was toward Graham or Reedoak.

Figures is a part of reedoak business, they will be printed on demand, each day, at the requested scale.
