I've been looking for figures for over 10 years, started to mod the regular dio figs that come with it.

PM me with yer particulars..
oh by the way were there any missions by the memphis belle with an escort of fighter planes? It could be an interesting topic on a diorama
Pretty much all of them were escorted... Typically, the fighters would escort the bombers to the limit of ther range, then leave them, then pick them up again on the return leg... It was only later on that the Mustangs were able to escort them to the deep targets and back.
The Luftwaffe tactics of the day were to intercept the bombers as early as possible with a token attack to get the escorts (P-38s and P-47s usually) to drop their tanks in order to reduce the already limited range of the escorts.
Verlinden has a Bomber crew in 48th.. USAAF Bomber Crew #1386 Hope this helps my friend!
