    Hey guys, I know this isn't WWII related but I want to take up doing WWI models as well, but I can't find many sites that sell a good amount of 1/35 plastic figures or tanks, does anyone have any links?

    Google "EMHAR" and look at the pics. There is enough in 1:35.

    That helped a lot, but still not nearly enough to make a diorama out of :(

    Hi there,

    As someone else suggested, Emhar make a limited range of WWI British and German armour. (For some reason, their German vehicle is only available in 1/72nd scale.) I have built their kits of the British Mark IV "Female" and the Whippet. -These are both simple kits with relatively few parts that build up into attractive models. Emhar also makes a couple of field guns, although I cannot attest to their quality. The Emhar 1/35th scale figures are very poor...they look like a child's plastic toy soldiers more than anything else, and lack all crispness of detail.

    ModelCellar makes an excellent line of resin 120mm First World War figures -including a figure of Canadian fighter pilot Billy Bishop.

    There's a company operating out of Spain called Andreas that has done some amazing work with figures in white metal, including a small but excellent line of First World War figures. (These figures are excellent...but don't expect any bargains in terms of price.) Here's a link to the Andreas site: ANDREA MINIATURES MARKET PLACE

    I can remember a time when very little was available re: modelling and the First World War. Thankfully, that has changed. There are now some companies that produce some very interesting kits focusing on the subject of the Great War.
