Re: Orion ......why the prejudice ?

"so come on and pull your finger out, or is this just Brit hating prejudice?"

Wait a minute: You don't get one of the toys you want, and you claim that is for some hating prejudice - seriously?

Re: Orion ......why the prejudice ?

Hate ? not my word/s , but there must be some reason Brits have not been done, and seeing as they have not,why ? Not enough 1/72 British tanks ? I think not , someone else has already made them ? No , not much anticipated demand, surely not , they have been requested frequently on every 1/72 forum for over a decade to my knowledge. The latest set Americans in winter gear, covers the winter of 44/45 a few months of the war, A set of Western desert Brits would cover four years 1940,41,42,43 , so to me there seems no logical reason as to why they have not been done, so that leaves an illogical one, prejudice could be an example of that, hence the question mark it is a question not a statement.

Re: Orion ......why the prejudice ?

I am with Alan. Britain's (meaning the entire empire) contribution to ww2 is highly neglected....
Though, strelets made some good efforts recently...

Re: Orion ......why the prejudice ?

And not to forget the first companies for our hobby. Airfix and Matchbox were also british. And some of their items still are states of the art...

Re: Orion ......why the prejudice ?

It's all about the markets. The market seems to love Nazi figures and their implacable foes the Yanks - thanks Hollywood!

Re: Orion ......why the prejudice ?

Agree about needing british/Indian tank crews and riders ,but what about also French and Italian crews and tank riders ?,I love the Japanese aa gun and crew,hopefully these will also be repeated in other nations as well .
