Re: Japanese summer dress

I have to agree, 23mm is about right for WW2 Japanese , and I hope future sets come no taller than that,especially the heavy weapons

Re: Japanese summer dress

I wrote about this when they were proposed. According to US Army Guide books the average height of Japanese soldiers was 5 foot three and a half inches and you can bet there were not wide variations. Height is one issue the other is stature as most Japanese were short limbed so it is not just a scaled down European as usually the torso is about the same as an average European ditto the head. 22.5 mm is about correct or between 22 and 23 mms with most 22mm but get the stature ( and weapons) wrong and they will just look small.

So did I. As well as about the nearly total lack of submachine guns in the Japanese army.

Let's hope for the planned additional sets. Regards, Pa
