Hey folks

Looking for some suggestions for 20mm scale NOT PSC (love them, but they have a limited range….right??) and a US source. Tanks, infantry and guns.

Love you Brits, but S&H is a killer.

Thank you

HaT Industry, Pegasus, Strelets, S-Model, First to Fight and probably some others I'm forgetting.

Armourfast. Here's a US distributor in Jersey: link

Just type in the manufacturer in the Brand search box to get a listing.

TMP advertiser Fidelis Models sells some 1/72nd scale plastic and metal figures. They often have out of production items.

20mm is pretty much the only scale that I don't have a WWII collection in. Most of my stuff is 15mm and a good deal of it is PSC.

Don't write them off. The range is limited compared with some others but they have most of the staples covered; they are very nice models and are very consistently scaled; and the price is very competitive. In the States I get mine from TheWarStore Neal's prices are great and there is no discernible S&H hit.

I'd go with AB figures though.

Thanks everyone.

Also, I'm not writing off PSC. LOVE their stuff…just trying to see what else is out there for items PSC dosn't have :)

AB from Eureka Miniatures in the US – the best and go well with PSC actually
dying for PSC to get back into 1/72 figures.

Grubby Tanks, Brittania Miniatures have always been great regarding postage fees. Same with Ready to Roll. I know UK based but great products.

What are peoples opinions off the older Revell kits? Just picked up a pz 3j and it has some nice detail but the wheels are a PIA to glue together.

I can see the fragility in these sort of kits. I might steer clear of these types.

The revell Kits are highly detailed and well worth the time to put together.

The Revell PZ III is a lovely kit ( I reckon it as newer rather than older myself but then again anything released in last 10 years is new as far as Im concerned lol), If your not a 'modeller' such kits do take a little while to put togther easily but its a fun learning curve and with each one you get better and more satisfaction. Well biult, based and reasonably carefully handled they are fine, just dont give em to someone who is used to the WH40K type models designed for 5 year olds with ADHD………..lol
