Anyone know of a good source for WWII GER Small Arms and equipment?
Dragon #3824 looks a little sparce for my liking.

I'm talking about 1/16th plastic model WWII German small arms and equipment models- Just in case the F3d3ral BI is listening

Hello Joe

I was looking for similar to add some stuff to a 1/16th PzIV.
All I found was the Dragon set you mentioned and the Verlinden set Henry posted a link to.
I opted for the former as plastic beats resin for me.
There are also the Tamiya figures which have some bits and pieces... maybe you can find them cheap enough to warrant purchase.

Sorry can't be of more help. With the various 1/16th kits out there now you'd think more would be available. Maybe it is and I just haven't seen it.

Cheers

Sean

Would 1/18 be too small to be usable? If you think you can get away with it, you should still be able to find weapons for 21st Century's old line of 1/18 accessory sets.

Sometimes you can also find bulk lots of extra gear. There are other 1/18 manufacturers as well who do accessories for 21C, BBI, Merit, etc.

Thanks Henry and Sean!
I have wondered about Verlinden's stuff. For some reason, the images of their stuff built up looks weird to me.
I have 4 1/16th figs I'm working on right now-3 Tamiya's and a Dragon. And it just seems like you're stuck with the options that come on the sprue in the box.
I will probably scoop up a couple of the Dragon's Small arms, then go get some more casting material and make a bunch of them!
