1/35 Alice packs?
Posted by New Hampshire on Saturday, May 30, 2009 6:43 PM

Anyone know where I can get JUST 1/35 Alice Packs?  I know Tamiya makes a kit with them in there, but I already have an Italeri Modern Battle accessories kit, and buying the Tamiya on top of that seems a bit overkill.  I need at least three Alice Packs and am kind of hoping maybe some manufacturer out there offers JUST the packs (I know, its a stretch, but....)

There are actually 3 Tamiya Modern Accessory sets. The first set contains the old ground effect simulator for the old 105 mm equipped M1 and M60 tanks and contains around 2 Alice Packs Set 2 is the more modern set and contains the IR IFF CIP panels and has 8 seperate Alice Packs and 4 paired packs. Set 3 which came out last year is the rerelease of set 1 with a added ICM US Infantry figure set. DML released a Desert Storm figure set back around 91-92 which also contain Alice Packs. I don't know of any other source of Injection molded Alice Packs.

Thanks Mikeym.  I had a feeling I would not find them seperate anywheres.  Guess I will just suck it up and pick the Tamiya kit up.

Just get the 2nd set since you get 12 packs total. Right now I'm hoping someone come out with some resin or Injection plastic Alice Packs and the pack frame. There are some resin sets but they are pricey and might cost more than the Tamiya set.

Hey gang,

    I'm building an M1A2 1/35 Tamiya tank which has Alice packs but the instructions doesn't say what color it needs for painitng. I've been googling actual packs online and they seem to be either black or olive green. What do guys think?

The large rucks are olive green, the medium rucks will be either olive green, more common, or woodland camo occasionally.

Sorry for such a late replay and necroing such an old thread, but for anyone who happens on this discussion, Value Gear Details.  10 bucks USD will get you a pack of 18 Alice Packs in resin.

As a note, those are Large packs which have to be set on the Alice Pack Frame.

Medium packs can have shoulder straps installed directly, that was not an option with the Large Pack.
The Medium pack can be fitted to the frame, as well.

(That's the second pattern waist belt on the pack frame.)
