Phil

My contribution of images should be in your in tray.

The Chinese had an eclectic and exotic mix of captured weapons, unlike the N Koreans who were a Soviet client state.

Thus you find Japanese rifles, Model 92 HMGs and ex-Nat Thompsons being used.

The CPLA still used bugles for battlefield comms, so you need at least one such figure.

The Plastic Soldier Review gives some good images of the IMEX range in summer gear. The initial winter dress was the classical padded jackets with external quilting, but by winter 52, the padding was internal, so it looked a bulker version on summer dress.

A few images of Senior officers in winter gear would be most useful.

Could we have some of these too?  Cheesy I know it's 70 year out of time, but Id only need one pose.  Cheesy  They'd be great fun to paint.

Yes,  that canny lad Leon has stretched the budget to include some heavy weapon crew for mortars.  Thumbs up

Unfortunately Phil and I have deleted our images of uniform detail on our PCs.

Need help with images of classical South Koreans, British in early war tropical kit and winter kit (smock ) and Commandos in US kit

I am sure some of these must be logged in the Forum old post archives - if anyone is kind enough and up for a challenge ?  Smiley

Many thanks !

James

Yes.....HELP !

I CAN (sort of) see the piccies of the greens that are already done.....But I can't really make out where things like pockets are situated......Unfortunately some of those haven't gone into the mould yet.....So I can't expect Leon to send me them back (Or send me castings, which would help).....So if any kind soul has any ref piccies, they'd be gratefully received.

So we're talking bush hat - not slouch hat? i.e. like this?


Sounds good to me. I'll probably mix in some cap comforters too.  Cheesy

No worries Nobby,  Phil is keen to get started and finish the Korean range.  These images you sourced earlier were easy to post, and let him crack on.

The Brits in 1950 winter smock -  and South Koreans in cap, are still outstanding.

Cheers

Hello,

I'm finally getting ready to order Korean War Chinese.   Hurra!!

I was looking over the winter kit for the Chinese and noticed that there wasn't any LMG or MG shown like there is for the summer uniform.  Did I miss something??  Additionally are there any figures with the PTRD41 ATR rifle??

Thanks

We'll be looking at some more additions further down the line to add more options like those, not sure on timescales though.  It'll all depend on the sales really and how much interest there is.
