I've seen this kit of six molded plastic navy crewmen and mechanics in dungaree work uniforms.  Unfortunately it seems to be out of production.  Is there any online store where I could find them, or do I need to just keep my eye on eBay?  No sign of this kit on ebay currently, by the way, although the eduard RAF and Luftwaffe crew kits are available.

Red Frog seems to have something in stock. I'd picked up a card from them at a show some time back, but I can't say if I have ordered anything from them, so please don't think of this as an endorsement. Just a possible lead for you to follow- http://redfroghobbies.com/productDetail.php?id=8119&item=1_or_48_US_Navy_Personnel_1942_(6)_(Plastic)

A couple other sources for 1/48 USN deck crew aviation support figures are the Tamiya Moto Tug set, and several of the old Monogram 1:48 USN aircraft kits such as the TBF, TBD, SBD, and F4F.

Yeah the monogram kits are good for a couple of decent figures per kit usually.  I threw away a couple of figs from the monogram B25 when I was reorganizing my workshop.  Should have kept them in the pile for future dioramas!

Yes I am filling Altoids tins full of 1/48 aircrew and ground crew figures. Now that my builds are evolving to the point that I feel comfortable doing bases and figures to display the build.
