I think the problem with "large scale" figures (1/24th, G, 1:20.3 etc) is that the market is so small, few companies will spend the money for high quality masters. Thus there are few quality figures to choose from, and lots of lower quality stuff.

On top of that, many folks in the larger scales are not very choosy to begin with, so there are plenty willing to buy caricatures and amateurish figures.

Two new vintage female figures in 1/35 scale from Aurora Model:
http://aurora-model.jp/e-military.html

ML-047 is ye olde "bombshell" as shown above (which makes it somewhat military related)  Wink



ML-048 is a more demure flapper

I've gotten one other figure from Aurora before ... worked out cheaper on shipping to order thru their ebay store ... figures are nicely sculpted, cast in metal.  Cheers, Dallas

Now here is an up and coming figure that every red blooded male should buy . Even if they don't model in 1/35th scale .

  We will then , of course , require her friend , Rosie The Rivetter !

That one is definitely on my list.....but I am also eagery anticipating this figure set (designed by Christophe Desse), should be part of the upcoming "Red Star" kit, also from Industria Mechanika. [The "Red Star" will be a definite buy for me.)







More pics, info on the two figure sets, and release date can be found here on the iM site: http://industriamechanika.com/blog/tag/red-star-flyer/

Damn! .................. I could so easily be seduced by this type of modelling. The subject matter appeals on most levels, I love the caricature and the whimsy, and the quality of the original modelling is exemplary.
I think there's simply an element of desire and ownership in there too.............. fantastic.

(I've always wanted to build the "flapper" as well - but could never track an example down - for shame)

I really appreciate all the time and effort everyone has put into this thread.

I wonder how we ever built models without the internet.

I just came across this amazing Modelkasten kit for some truly lovely ladies. Who could resist some Frauleins with Machinguns.
