Preiser figures

Posted by mickey mouse on 12 Jan 2017, 11:58

Can someone tell me where I can afford 1/72 Preiser figures? I'd like to buy some sets but don't know where to find them.

Hello Mickey,

generally speaking, I found a lot of figures in my local toystore, but mostly for small trains. I can imagine that you are looking for the military line. This was in former time hard to get. Sometimes I found sets on eBay or at fairs. Maybe you can try:

KAMAR
http://kamar-zinnfiguren.de/index.php?manufacturers_id=17&XTCsid=0ba2e0a412b47c6e51d28c4a7dfdeb53

oder Kai Fuhrmann.

I do not know if Martin sells them I never saw them there,

Hope this helps a little. Otherwise if you send me a list of what you are looking for I can have a look in the town.

Every well sorted model railway shop in Germany does carry the very wide Preiser range.
Since you live relatively close to the border, you could visit one or more shops on your next trip to your eastern neighbours. ;-)

Anyway, quite many german (& some of the bigger european) online shops sell Preiser as well.
A simple search on the web might do the trick already.
As far as I remember, Dragons Cave, Kamar, Tracks N Troops, Jadar and MC Modellbau offered 1/72 Preiser sets in the past.
Again, the easiest way to get hold of your desired sets may be to search for online railway shops ("Modelleisenbahn" or "Modellbahn").
Because Preiser is primarily producing H0 (1/87) railway figures, its particularly those shops which offer their whole & much wider range very often.
Shipping to the Netherlands should be within tolerable limits.

Hope this helps?

Good luck with your hunt! :thumbup:

Edith says that Jan gave an appropriate answer in the meantime already.
Well, that happens when you're trying to do 10 different things at the same time while being online... :-D

Hi Mickey, the Preiser soldier are really a fun to build. Maybe Andy from Hagen has some. Drop him a line

I have this Set,and they are so tiny HO OO figures.The main reason that I bought this set years ago,well before the internet age was, The King George VI, of England can be viewed leaning upon his golf club, and her Royal Highness Bess are features in this Pre WWII top row. The photograph was taken after 1936 that inspired these poses. I borrowed this from E Bay rather than fudge mine out of the collection.BB
