Hi all,

 

I'm looking for 1/35 scale Japanese tank crew figures. I've searched Verlinden and a couple of big online hobby shops with no success.

 

Suggestions?

There are IIRC Tamiya ones for the Type 10 and Type 90 MBTs, though I dunno if there are any sold separately from those kits. Wot time frame are you looking for?

You may need to do some actual hunting for them though.

 

but this link seems to have them in stock

Here are some 1/35 of just tank crew sets on Japanese sites. Some seem fairly cheap, some seem quite expensive, even for a set that includes only 1 or 2 crew, so high quality I'd assume. Some are immediately available to order and others are on a basis that they will e-mail once available. When looking at the price, ¥1,000 = $9.37 at today's exchange rate.

 

On one site called HO33YSEARCH

Amazon.jp has a couple. Both of these sets are also in the links above.

amazon.jp01 (again, the same one, but available here)

amazon.jo02

 

Hobbyland has a lot of sold out sets. These are the only available ones.

I know a few big plastic model stores near me. Now I have an excuse to check them out again and fancy buying myself a tank like I usually do when I go to them. I'll post here whether or not they have some more sets that seem to fit the bill.

Yes, I'm looking for WW2 figures. Thanks for the leads, Doug and Jason; I will follow up and see what is most available/affordable.

 

The price on the first site that Doug linked to is quite reasonable - if they actually do restock the item. Even the more expensive set is not prohibitively so, if they can't be found anywhere else.

 

Thanks again ! :) I was really surprised that Verlinden didn't have anything, but they do seem to be more into Nazis, when it comes to Axis items.

 

EDIT: I found the set on Amazon here in the US. Thanks for the leads!
