Help needed

My last Soviet reinforcements have arrived. Only the Pegasus Summer Infantry is still on its way, I hope they will arrive tomorrow. If they are here, I will start to build up and paint my first big bunch of figuren. A lot of conversions are or will be done, you can find some first pictures of my Soviet troops in this and this post.

But now I have a little problem. I need some cheap Hong Kong figures that I can't get here in any shop. I went from shop to shop but I did not get them. So maybe some of my readers can help me.

I am searching cheap Hong Kong copies of old Airfix "Russian Infantry" figures. Airfix produced them in 1:32 but they never came out in 1:72. Some of the poses appeared in the "Red guards" set of ESCI but this is a long time out of sale.

I need one pack of cheap Russians or at least 10 to 15 guys with binocular from this set, maybe some German reader can help me, I would be responsible for the costs. The figures are needed for conversations like
this one (the figure in the middle).


The figures are sold in packages like this one.


I need 10 - 15 of this figures.


If you think that you can help me, please send an email to ww2modelzone(at)hotmail(dot)com, maybe I have figures or stuff that can help you. Or someone can send me a link to some shop, but only German shops please.

I can probably help, but to give you the number you need - they would have to be the larger ones (25mm?) rather than the smaller (22/23mm) airfix sized ones? I can't tell from the photo which yours are.

Do they have hollowed out bases, or smooth bases? Do they have a marking?

I have the other poses as well including lying MG gunner with drum-magazine, but the quality tends toward the 'qwarch'!!

Good luck on your quest. I do Have Russian Inf. from Airfix but I belive that is the common 1/72. So I cannot help you.:(

@Maverick
Great to read that. I need only some guys with binoculars. I would like to get some figures from you. I mean the 25 mm figures with smooth flat bases and without marking. Zhe color was red/brown when I saw them the last time. Please send an email to ww2modelzone at hotmail com, so I can offer you something fine for them.

@ GEM
No problem, maybe Maverick can help me. But thanks pal.
