Topic: Drivers Wanted – Where to find crew?
January 4, 2018 at 12:33 pm #3028
Ok, so I’ve not had too much trouble finding dudes to stand on Turrets and dudes who can lean out of windows with guns, but dang it for the life of me, I can’t find a single pack of 1:72 scale drivers.
I’ve scrolled EVERY page of 1:72 scale minis on Both Drum&Flag and Hannants model shops but turned up nothing.
Plenty of seated WW2 pilots.
Plenty of seated tank drivers.
I know http://sandsmodels.com do a bunch of “driver” models, but again, no arms out (plus they’re pretty chunky sculpts that don’t fit most Hotwheels without a LOT of hacking about).
I can’t find a single pack of dudes, seated, with their arms out like they’re holding a steering wheel. So far I’ve resorted to modelling greenstuff arms/legs onto existing torsos, but this is REALLY fiddly work.
If anyone has a source, I’d love to know.January 4, 2018 at 12:47 pm #3029
I have avoided all figures for that very reason (I had not thought of looking at 1/72 WW2 etc stuff.
So basically thanks for the tip and no sorry I can’t help.January 4, 2018 at 12:53 pm #3030
Just spotted these when looking for myself not sure if any good. https://www.drumandflag.co.uk/collections/toy-soldiers-1-72/products/revell-02402-nato-pilots-d-gb-usa-modern-era-1-72-scale-plastic-figuresJanuary 4, 2018 at 5:35 pm #3031
Nice work Dan! Don’t know how I missed those!
looks like they have some decent seated poses, the helmets look kinda like racer helmets and the arms are poseable.
I might pick some up!
FYI, PlasticSoldierReview has pics of like, EVERY 1:72 box ever, so if a site doesn’t have a preview , you can ususally find it on there:
