    They're "Dragon" models. 1/6th scale figures like GI Joe, in the 60's and 70's. Here's a link to an outlet I buy from in Arizona, I think it is,

    Monkey Depot - The Finest in Scale Military in the left column on this site, you'll see 1/6 scale allied, axis, click on those. You can purchase a complete figure, or kit bash with loose parts. Thanks for the comment, call me Mayhem! I'm kidding, my name is Paul.

    Thank you, there are people whose work I admire, and aspire to, and I'm moving toward weathering, which I haven't done a lot of, yet. I'm into creating the backdrop at this point, We've got a miniatures factory developing in my kitchen! Throw on Glenn Miller Glenn Miller - In the Mood - Sun Valley Serenade (1941) HQ - YouTube

    My wife and I whipped up 50 sandbags in a few hours listening to this, haha!

    nice work but allow a comment, do you think it would of been more fitting to strike out the LW Blue and replace with what is already fitted the tropical pink/tan in completion ?
