L.R.D.G.

Thank you, so much, Strelets,
These could be a very special Christmas present. That is if the Customs and controls permit their delivery.
I shall be happy for a very long time with these great sculpts: I sure my dad is amongst them.
Future companion and opposing sets will be very welcome. I've already sourced their transport including a Chevolet open-truck.

Perhaps a future 'patrol' set could include camels and soldiers with goggle and face bandanas.
An action set with Arab guides and Italian combat troops would be greatly appreciated.

Wonderful stuff Strelets, You have made my year :) :) :)

Re: L.R.D.G.

Yes please: Arab guides and Italian combat troops. Make us re-enact the North African campaign. Dreams are made of this.

Re: L.R.D.G....vehicles to go with the figures

Ironically, there appear to be at least as many 1/76 (20mm) vehicle options for LRDG in the desert as there are 1/72 options, probably more if we look at all plastic, metal and resin options.

Aside from the old Matchbox 1/76 set (not currently available) and the fine 1/72 Dragon Chevy (limited availability) recourse to metal and resin models provides the other option.

At the top in terms of quality and certainly also price are the excellent, diorama/collector standard metal models made by Milicast. An example of what is on offer is at:

The Milicast range is large and super-accurate, and is 1/76 scale. This is OK in my mind for figures up to around 23mm in height (and not too bulky) and if the new LRDG figures are within this scale envelop I'd suggest that the Milicast range is where to look for LRDG vehicles,

It will simply need a little 'digging deeper' into pockets.

I should have put Milicast down as 'resin' rather than metal...with some smaller parts in metal I believe. They are, whatever, super models.
