    You will have some problem with that as the Marines in 1940 had the old style helmets and were primarily issued Springfields. The MP kit from Airfix had the later helmets and Garands.

    You can get the helmets from the Brit kits but no Springfields unless you can get them elsewhere.

    Those kits are often on E-bay.

    Here is an illustration of Marine at Wake Island 1941:

    I'll have to dig through the stash, but I might have one or two boxes still sealed in the shrink-wrap. How many do you need?

    I don't think you can blame Hollywood for this one...the script below the title looks to be Korean.
