Well known japanese supplier, was secretly hoping you possibly found an european shop carrying the KDKK figs.
Have to admit that, despite the evident "globalisation"-growth within the hobby business, I still shy away from ordering in east asia (long delivery time, high postage costs, language barrier, ...).

I hope I'm not asking too much but could you please be a bit more specific on this, if possible?
How do they compare size- & style-wise with other manufacturers? From your comment I take that the quality is subpar? Is this true for all their 1/72 figures? ... :(

Thanks for sharing your great work in general and your response in this case! :thumbup:

Me too. But I want these Figures. Bought two Japanese and one German Soldier. The German is in casting quality much higher. Bubble free in comparison to his Japanese mate. Details are more on the soft side.

Maybe I get luck till now. Business work always fine.

For the bubbles of the both Japanese I am sorry no. They are already used.

Very nice! I thought the plane was cleverly suspended.

Thank you for your efforts and providing the pictures. Very helpful! :yeah:

Good detail on that KDKK comrade, but obviously on the larger side.
In general MIG figs are a bit too large for my taste. FB Minis are ok scalewise.

Btw, I also really like this unnecessarily disguised "Ferdinand Porsche" set very much.

Once more, thanks for this comparison.

And keep up the good work! :thumbup:
