is a guide to U.S. AFV kits and figures in 1/35 and 1/32 scale. Nearly all are
WWII Army, but I've included some Marines, pilots, and Korean War sets that can
be adapted to WWII use with varying degrees of adjustment. For each manufacturer
Im familiar with, Ive given some background on the company and an
overview of their products strengths and deficiencies. Where possible I've
created links to the manufacturers websites for your convenience, and stock numbers
are provided. Youll also find links to a couple hundred product reviews,
including accessories, conversions, and upgrade sets, from myself and other knowledgeable
note in the text whether particular items, to my knowledge, are "OOP"
or currently Out Of Production. But that doesn't mean they're necessarily impossible
to find. Many such kits collect dust on hobby store shelves or in modelers' closets.
You might be able to track them down via the modeling websites or on E-Bay. Some
manufacturers, particularly Tamiya and Italeri, often will stop production of
a kit for a period of time and then reissue itjust about the time you've
paid $70 for a $15 kit on E-Bay!
know some modelers are interested in what particular Army units are represented
in a kit's decals, so I've listed those when I've had the information. If you
can fill in any of the blanks, please send me the information!
this site would include comprehensive lists of upgrade and conversion sets on
the market, but there are too many to track and they can easily be found by checking
with such vendor websites as Squadron Mail Order.
Click on a link to each manufacturer and find what's available out there! If you
have any information on other kits I have missed, or details on kit decals, please
let me know on the Feedback page.
