For a 'what if' scene you could make up your own. Whats the scenario.

I was thinking a Bundeswehr M47 and an American M41 near each other and some grenadiers on the rear deck of the M47 and having it set in a city or maybe in a field with a disabled Soviet T55 near them.

This is animation but pretty accurate. In the 60's they would have had HK G3 battle rifles with the wooden stock, MG42/M3 machine guns, American helmets and webbing, probably, and this chunky camo pattern, which is quite cool. 50's era I'm not sure. Maybe M1 Garands and American uniforms.

It isn't easy at all to find US Army figures from that period either.

Wow i love the animation it helps. I’m thinking i could maybe use late war fallschirmjager for the blouses and maybe late war Wehrmacht pants. If that makes sense, some of it looks like the German splinter camo, what’s y’all thoughts?

PS where could i get hk G3s in 1/35
