Plenty of RAF, German and Americans in 1/48th. But no love for the French. Need early war, 1939 or 1940 Western Front.

Well, judging from this footage: YouTube link You could just use beret heads on any jumpsuited ground crew. The Armee de l'Air also had a blue varuese and trousers.

This one image I have is from a French AF recruiting poster of the time. Shows a mechanic in a light blue jumpsuit on wearing a officer type peak hat.

I thought it might be a pilots flight suit but he is holding a wrench. The orange looking outfit is apparently a flight suit.

Jeff,

Thanks for the video. Looks like a beret to me. My back up plan is to modify one of the ground crew kits. Luftwaffe or RAF.
