Plastic GIs are now available! Designed to be equipped for use in all theatres of the war in which American soldiers fought and at anytime during America’s involvement in the conflict, these great multi-pose plastics allow you loads of options!
The boxed sets contains parts to make 25 plastic, multi-pose US infantrymen. There are several backpack and equipment options on the sprues so you can use this set to represent American footsloggers from their introduction to the Second World War in 1941 right through to the end of WWII. They wouldn’t look out of place in the Pacific and would even be good for US troops in the Korean War. For those of you after something a little bit different for an army how about painting them as Free French soldiers (they used US uniforms and equipment) or even the Brazilian Expeditionary Force!
Above are just some of the many options you have for building and equipping your plastic GIs. Wearing their Parsons Jacket and woolen trousers they are the classic GI in every regard. There is a variety of head options in the box – from uncovered helmets to the net-covered versions. We’ve also included the soft cap worn under helmets and even a cigar-chewing head with helmet straps dangling loose – the ‘Sarge’ character we’ve all seen in a number of comic book strips and movies! As with all of our plastic Bolt Action sets there are loads of different heads so you can pick and choose how to build your force and aren’t beholden to use all the heads in the pack.
As with our previous plastic Bolt Action boxed sets there are two different sprues – one with weapons and the other with bodies and equipment. This allows ultimate flexibility in building, converting and painting your troops. Spare weapons and equipment are always well put to use as stowage on your vehicles and or as captured weapons on your Germans!
On the weapons sprue you’ll find Springfield and Garand rifles, M1 Carbines, Thompson and Grease Gun SMGs, sniper rifles, combat shotgun, Bazooka and stacks more!
