Hi, basically what the title says. Warmodelling used to do em I'm sure… But now dont. Anyone know best place.. Not soft plastic though. I hate airfix figures

The Eureka figures are lovely – they make US Marines and Japanese for the Pacfic, and I have supplemented them with Warmodelling figures.

Britannia also make some.

FAA does excellent USMC. Their Japanese are OK.

I haven't seen them in hand, but always thought Sgt. Major's look great.

The Kelly's Heroes range for the Pacific is comprehensive and very nice, particularly the Japanese

There is also FAA in the U.S. The do 2 slightly different ranges for Japs – Imperial Japanese & Japs in Burna.

Interesting, there are appears to be three different sculptors used. The IJA ambush set is Paul Barnshaws work, I have enough of his figures I can spot his style. The majority of the other IJA figures were commissioned by John Bruce way back but after Dave Allsop had parted ways and gone to the US, no idea who the designer was other than he did the Germans in greatcoats and the ETO yanks.

the Japs in Burma are a different designer again, seem vary tall and skinny for Japs but nice detail by the looks of it
