What's the consensus out there on Scale Link's 1/32 line? I know some guys bag on the figures for being a little stiff as they are conceived more in the "toy" soldier category but the vehicles aren't too bad, the subject matter is interesting and the line is vast. I have a bunch of the stuff but haven't tackled too much of it yet.

In my humble opinion, the early Scale Link offerings are near-comparable to most alternative selections. Keep in mind John Piper's origial products all date from the early 80's, yet the industry has not surpassed his fidelity for detail or scale accuracy. I for one was saddened when he sold his business. The items he had planned for future releases were shelved by the new ownership. Those ghost plans not only included a Fokker D7, but a 7,7cm FK16, Brit 18 pdr, 75mm M1897, (and their respective limbers) plus a Brit horse drawn ambulance.
What's further frustrating is knowing the moulds were in preparation ( the DV11 was ready for release- I've seen pics of the pre-release parts display.)
I suspect financial restraints forced the company to invest in more modest adventures.
At any rate, I still buy from them and have virtually all their vehicle and gun items relative to the Great War.
