This might be of interest to some of you.

Picked up one of these kits while browsing thru one of the toy stores downtown Stuttgart. It includes 4 each figures of French, German and British hard plastic figure kits with lots of options. Don't let the (1914) on the box fool you. Included are headgear for later period as well as some nicely detailed MGs. and various equipment. It retails for 19.99 Euro's and the detail is superb! The faces and equipment supplied are really well done.

It would be nice to see them offer the nationalities as separate boxes at some point in time. Better get one soon as the box states that they are made (molded) in the Ukraine….

From the box art, this looks suspiciously like a repackaging of the 3 ICM (from Ukraine) individual nationality 1914 kits, combined as a single set.

Could be. I dunno. Never got to see one of those.(ICM makes some really nice stuff!) Regardless, these are 12 really nice figures.

Back in the States, I have 3 boxes of Dragon Models 1/35th ACW Union Infantry. Do you know if they ever released Confederates, any Arty or Cav?

Nice to see other hard plastic 1/35th figure kits besides WWII and Moderns.

Dragon never released any other ACW stuff Tom. And those do look like the ICM figures--which are really nice.

Tamiya has also released a set of 1/35 WWI British Infantry. 5 figures for about $20 USD retail (let me know if you want one). They've also released a WWI British Mk IV tank with a price tag of $127 USD--but that does include the above figures.

If we're talking about models here, Takom has a much cheaper Mk IV out, as well as IIRC a St Chamond, FT-17, and have just announced a Mk V 3-in-1 (can be built as a Male, Female, or Hermaphrodite) as well as a Whippet. I also think they offer the A7V (wither than or Meng). Hobby Boss offers a Schneider CA as well.

Master Box (Ukraine) produces a set of multi-part plastic Union cavalry in 1/35th scale.

I've not seen this ACW kit, but have built & painted some of their WWII Soviet tanker figures -- very nice!

Tom,
Those figures look really nice. WHose figures can you use that match up with them? What about tanks? I am thinking about a diorama.

Paul: I was going to mention the Tamiya offerings (came out last year in the far East), but have yet to see any offered here in Europe. I therefore could not comment on their compatability. When I was in taiwn last Sept (father-in-law passing) one of the guys at the model shop I visit in Taipei told me that the Tamiya kit is really the Takom kit (yet another company I never heard of, but he DID have an open box to show me. Now I wish I had been able to pick one up.

skyking20:(Lance) Good question! Judging from other 1/35th Tamiya figs, they look to be a good match. I bow a tip of the hat to Paul as he stays up with all the new releases in the Plastic world for a living at Aarmstrong Dist.in Denver.

I have only seen the 1/32nd scale offerings of Imex, which I think would be too noticably larger.

Thanks dBerczerk for the link! I will now have to seek out a few boxes of them.

Appreciate all the responses. (Yes, Please, Paul.---Just the figs.)
