Hello everyone!

First of all, sorry if this is not the right thread for this, I didnt see any identification discussions...

 

I am trying to return to modeling where I left off cc 20 years ago at ther age of 15 :)

 

I am thinking about doing a mini diorama and I found some leftovers from the past.

 

Can someone tell me wich set is this? Or at least tell me whats the scale? :)

Hello everyone!

Thanks for thinking of asking!  You're spot on-it's a question about figures, and you picked the right spot Wink

I think GM is right, these look like 1/72 Italeri figures.

1/350 was mentioned, but they'd be much, much smaller. 

The bigger the government, the smaller the citizen.

Well placed question.

Here's a search trick, Smitiz.

I had no idea, but I like challenges and I happen to be sitting here while a document downloads.

At first they kind of looked like the old Airfix 1/72 Delrin figs, with those bases. But memory serves that those sets were on trees connected by the base only. But I was pretty sure they were 1/72 by level of detail.

Try google image search. In some ways it gets you there as fast as any other way. 

Here's an image, sorry it's so small.

Glad to contribute. They keep everything up to date as well. Whoever runs that site has a serious love and commitment to 1/72 figures. No ads either. I love their future releases page. Russo Japanese war figures? Yes please

Oh Gosh ;

 See how age can affect the old optical orbs ? I saw small figures , I didn't see much detail . I was going by the positions of some of the guys and the fellow with the paddles  .

 I had totally forgotten about that group of figures .
