Working on a scenario and I need some early war French 28mm Ground Crews. Mechanics, ordnance men, fuelers. etc. If not French I can probably make do with others. Anybody make these?

If it is WW2 you are looking for, Airfix do a 1/48th set of RAF ground crew refuelling and re arming. They may be a little large if you are looking for 1/56th but I have seen them used in games before and they blend in quite well. They may be adaptable for French. I think Eduard also do a nice set of RAF ground crew in BD's and shirt sleeves so may also be suitable for conversion.

I have seen those. I have seen RAF, Japanese, German, Soviet and American kits. But no French. My back up plan is to modify one of the those kits. I have also seen some British vehicles like fuel trucks, cranes etc. that I am going to use. Just would be easier to have the actual French crews.

Unfortunately I haven't seen French either. It is somewhat odd given most of the other nations are represented.
