Alrighty then – we go British again with D-Day Miniatures latest

Today we preview the two latest figures sold separately or as a matching set in 35th scale from D-Day Miniatures – we also have an LRDG patrol to look at in 72nd scale – what do you say chaps? Let’s take a look in our preview…


D-Day Miniatures July 2014 releases.
WWI British Tank Corps Sergeant (#35022)
1/35th figure.
Sculptor: Pawel Krasicki
Boxart: Pawel Krasicki
12 Euro + shipping
This tanker sure does have the “male model” look going on as he shows us 1918’s latest fashions of tanker’s overalls with a clasped leather belt and service tunic draped over his shoulder. :-)
His hipster moustache adds to the modern look and his hand on his hip (A.K.A Teapot) give him the dandy look that I am sure many modellers can relate to. The Two stripes on his shoulder work even better for a full corporal‘s rank?

WWI British Tank Corps Staff Officer (#35023)
1/35th figure.
Sculptor: Pawel Krasicki
Boxart: Pawel Krasicki
12 Euro + shipping 
With his cane and long thin gate this tall officer of the tank corps of WWI – He is slender and mustached and looking every part the landed gent at war. His tall galoshed boots are very detailed as is his officer’s tunic underneath his coat. 
The officer figure is seen wearing a long Burberry coat which in the painted figure you can see the tartan print in the lining of the coat.

WWI British Tank Corps (#35024 – 2 Figures)
1/35th figures.
Sculptor: Pawel Krasicki
Boxart: Pawel Krasicki
23 Euro + shipping
This pair are seen to be looking dapper but probably just the guys you want to see in your new Tamiya or Takom MKIV WWI Tank.

Some great pictures of the inspirations for this figure...
 And here they all are painted up - The talented Pawel Krasicki sculpted and painted them both
 

72004 - Breakfast in The Sahara - LRDG Patrol
1/72nd Scale Figures
Sculptor: Pawel Krasicki
Boxart: Pawel Krasicki
Ideally you could use these figures with Dragon 1/72 LRDG Chevy truck – together they would make a great Diorama.
This set contains 3 figures, Hobo stove and frying pan with two scrambled eggs – the resin on offer looks pretty good for such a small scale – Wasn’t it on old films that soldiers could crack and cook an egg on the bonnet of their vehicles in the desert? Surely a luxury to include a pan…

And here they are all painted up – looking good.
 
These are going to be available Tuesday29th of July – if you would like one go to the D-Day Website for more details : www.ddayminiaturestudio.com or email: office@ddayminiaturestudio.com
