Today it's quite easier. If you like 28 mm figures you can buy Northstar miniatures. In the 90ies we had to convert 1/72 minis.

…ah, this article brings back memories of slicing and dicing my Airfix minis back in the 70s! A fun read, thanks!

And slicing and dicing my fingers/thumbs.

None of my digits has properly forgiven me.

Which is why I now buy bespoke figures when I can.

My two shillings worth.
