Just got my SP Howitzer delivered today. Have the Hawk Battery essentially
glued and filled as subasemblies. I remembered the figures were somewhat
crude - but they're even worse than I remember. Binocular case the size of
the dust caps, arms all folded along sides etc, Cartoon hands (3 fingers and
a thumb). I fully intend this to be a fun build - from the box, but the
figures as just a bit too much. There must be some after market military in
1/32 that can be used as replacements - any ideas.
I'm pretty sure that Preiser makes some 1:32 scale figures, but am not
sure if they do military versions. I know that they do studio nudes if
you can replicate the coveralls yourself, but that might be a lot of
This should work - I have some sets in my stash - but at the time I think I
was more interested in Marines in the Pacific - But I believe Squadron just
listed the whole set in their new arrivals. Given the multipose they should
be readily easy to modify - I expect the only problem will be helmets and
boots which should be easy to correct.
