Hello everyone.

These are some pics of our first figures set. There are still in the development stage but hope they will be available soon.

The set consist of five figures: 2 tank commanders, 2 drivers and a co-driver/hull gunner.

Here are the tank commanders and one of the drivers.

Thank you all for your kind words :-D

@Quepwik, let me answer you here so as not to spoil your thread.

Of course in our plans are sets with complete figures. There are a lot of posibilities, but everything will depend on how this first set works. Developing a set like this is not the cheapest thing in the world.

Hello.

We have to apologize to all who may be interested in this article for their delay, due to reasons beyond our control. We hope that these problems will be solved and that these figures can be released soon.

Once again our apologies. :(

Thank you Jose!

Your figures are really lifelike. It would be great to see more crews for the British army as well, Europe and North Africa.

Thank you MABO. That's what we wanted to achive, figures as "real" as we could. And of course, I hope we'll be able to make more sets, but let´s see how this works ;-)

Hello Mickey.

The commanders and the drivers without problem. Let me check the hull gunner and I'll tell you later.

Congratulations!
In general, there are superb model vehicles in the market...but crews have a very low level!! You can fill the gap...come on!

It seems like that your webshop has a bug, José. When i sellect the English language and then go to accesories, it does take me there, but it jumps back into Spanish. Does anyone else experience that problem, or is it just me?
