Preiser, Airfix, Revell, LW, Red Box and Hasegawa in 1/72 plastic. You can check them out on plastic soldier review.

Czech Master Kits in resin. The link is to the CMK site but I find they are available at model web stores in US and UK.

I'm sure there are others as well.

Hasegawa kits are great, though I bought the 1/48 scale ground support equipment kits.

Hobbylink Japan ( link ) shows Luftwaffe and RAF ground crews from Revell and Airfix, modern USN flight deck crews and pilots from Fujimi, and modern USAF ground crews and pilots from Hasegawa. I didn't see any currently-in-production WW2 crew sets from Hasegawa on HLJ.

Just noticed this had a look at the Sgts Mess fellows.

They really are awfully good and so necessary where the manufacturer doesn't provide any.

Wonder if the German or other crew would be best for my Heller Romanian and Polish air force Karass?
