Following on from the previous post, some more 1:76 scale British / Commonwealth figures, this time from Matchbox.
These are a mixture of figures from the British Infantry and British Commandos sets with a couple of conversions.
Three different figures based on the same charging pose. The original unaltered figure on the left.
The NCO figure with the beret wielding a Colt-45 pistol is from the British Infantry set. The running figure with the Thompson SMG is from the Commando set with a head-swap.
Two more figures from the British Infantry set- officer on the left wearing a leather jerkin, and on the right a figure that I’ve often used as a tank crewman.
A mix of figures below from the Commandos and Infantry sets.
Love this crazy guy – you can see he’s bawling in thick Glasgow accent “come on you f**kers, I’ll take you all on !”
In the Commando set you also get a German sentry who looks like he’s just been taken out by this guy. I must get around to paining up that sentry and get a picture of the two together….
This poor lad below is from the Anzac Infantry set.
Makes a good casualty marker for games.
And finally a picture of the whole family
The Matchbox sets have been around for a good number of years – and I remember painting figures from these sets with Humbrol enamels back when they first came out when I was a kid – but up until recently they were difficult to come by, but thankfully that changed very recently when Revell re-released the sets.
