CPmodels, TQD Casting?

Posted by marc zijp on 12 Nov 2018, 18:31

I was dwelling around the net and discovered this company.
Question: can these figures be mixed with soldiers from the wellknown plastic manufacturers?
They have, amongst others, an interesting range of US & UK paratroopers including heavy weapons (morthar teams).

TQD I can only recommend! Really cool figs. CP will be great as well, I think, but I have never painted them.

Okay, thanks Mabo.
They look cool indeed. But didn’t know how they hold with plastic sets.
But this is the kind of support you want to have.
Also nice HJ soldiers for 1945 Berlin and Fallschirmjäger for different theatres and seasons.
Well, I will try to get me some sets.

The CP Models (TQD, some of which is formerly Martello) are outstanding figures! In terms of size, they are 1/72, so if you want them for 1/76 / 20 mm then these will be a bit big. They blend with a lot of the larger plastics, like Italeri. If you like the Ost Front, then the Kharkov range is a must have!

Yes they can. CP Models suits 1:72 plastic perfectly and Elhiem very well.
