Thanks Raider

NB: does anybody know what scale the QRF moderns are - looks like they might be 15mm
Also - just saw that they have been trying to sell the range.
Interesting

Cheers

Yes they are 15's. Can be a bit of a pig to put together, some nice figures though.

Thanks Ian - I was all over the new QRF website last night and just couldn't find the scale - probably my incompetence.
Shame they are 15mm as they have the FV432/30s and the Fox A/C which are hard to find in 10mm.

Red3 do a large number of metal 10mm Cold War items, including the Fox and FV432/30mm.

I won't post a link to a rival company here, but am sure your google-Fu is up to it.......

I bought 3 x UR67 (BTR-50) Mine Clearance Vehicles from Battlefield3D on ETSY - it will be interesting to see the quality and the size.

They are a nice addition to my 10mm cold war soviets - my Murmansk Brigade to fight my planned Swedes - especially as it is a 'funny' and I doubt other mainstream manufacturers will include it in a core range.

Thanks Mark  :)
I work on the principle that when Pendraken have the model I'll be loyal  :D But I also understand that some of the 'funnys' are just not worth Leon having made ahead of the core vehicles.
There are just so many varients of vehicles in a Cold War range you can get bogged down with the odds & ends.
I'll take a look at Red3

I've had some nice WW2 models off Battlefield3D, now he's printing in resin they look great - he did me some Churchill 3" Gun Carriers, M2A1 Mediums and M2A2 Light tanks, FCM F1, Tracteur C M39, Lorraine 38L APC and Renault R40, and a company of Is-7 all in 1/160 for me.

Is 1/160 true 10mm?

It's N gauge outside the UK, so means I can use model railway scenery to match. So I order all my 3d printed vehicles for 10mm gaming in 1/160. Butler 3D charge me the same as 12mm. Battlefield 3D are always competitively priced too.
