I must admit to looking on enviously at the wealth of after market bits you can get as a 1/35 scale modelmaker. Well, rather than mutter under my breath, I thought I'd see if I could bridge the gap, at least in the realm of the replacement heads that our larger-scale bretheren enjoy. Here are two examples of the type of thing I mean:
Above is a set called 'Scots Bonnets' which has 6 heads with Tam-O-Shanters and one with a Glengarry (complete with ribbon at the back).
Next is a set of 'Indian Pugrees' - two each in three different styles.
In addition I have a further ten sets ready to go off to be cast. Hopefully these will be available on the website by the start of September. They are:
'Officers Service Caps' - five examples of the standard officer's cap, one wearing headphones over the top.
'AFV Headgear' - three heads with berets and three wearing AFV style helmets, each with the head wearing headphones, plus an extra head without any headgear but wearing glasses.
'Airborne' - Five heads wearing helmets with netting and scrim, one wearing a plain helmet, and one wearing a beret
'Anzacs and South Africans' - Two Australian Bush Hats, two NZ Bush Hats, and two South African style Pith Helmets.
'Bare Heads' - As the name implies, seven bare heads with different hairstyles.
'Berets' - Seven heads wearing berets.
'DRs' - Six heads with the dispatch riders' pattern of helmet, two with goggles
'Mk II Helmet' - six heads wearing plain Tommy Helmets, plus a discarded helmet.
'Mk II Helmet with netting' - Six heads wearing the Mk II helmet covered with netting, plus a bare head.
'Mk II Helmet with scrim' - Six heads with suitably adorned and camouflage helmets, plus a discarded helmet.
These heads may be used with our sets already released or due for release from the DTM range. They are also suitable for figures by Airfix, Preiser etc.
I have one of my bi-monthly pdf newsletters coming out next week which will have pictures of all of these new sets plus (hopefully) four new figure sets which will be in production imminently. If you are not already on the mailing list and would like to see them, send me an e-mail. Good old-fashioned paper versions can also be sent to those who avoid the interweb.
All the best
