    The 3D quality really shows as these are highly detailed and crisp-looking figures! :)

    If undecided on 1/9 or 1/16, go for the 1/9 if you have the money and the display space. The SOF T-shirt figure in 1/9 looks amazing compared to the usual 1/16 scale figure...the details and parts size just "pop" in 1/9 scale.

    Yep, what Peter said, I'll be grabbing both SF dudes in 1/9, thank you for playing.

    Multicam arid or regular, Tiger stripe desert maybe? Nah, both in multicam would be easier.

    Wow, now these are so detailed, you are tempting me. One thing I can't resist is temptatin, HA! Love the range of available scales, especially the SF figs. Excellent Black!

    I just received these latest 1/9 US SOF figures and they look ABSOLUTELY AMAZING and STUNNING! The 3D printing quality really shows on the figures with intricate stitches and details. The figures' sizes are impressive...taller than a smartphone and one can feel the weight of the resin = solid and tough.

    What's more, the carbines are straight and being 1/9 size, I didn't see any warping of the gun barrel or smaller parts because everything is just so much larger, thicker, and tougher than 1/16 and 1/35 scale. I highly recommend these figures for the modern military resin figure modeler. :) Thumbs way up!

    If you dont mind, how much were they?

    1/9 figure is $100 USD and $49 USD for 1/16 figure--not including shipping, but do ask if it does.

    Believe me, these are probably THE BEST modern "large scale" US SOF figures available, and the market is shrinking as many vendors who make modern resin US figures (1/16 scale) have dropped out of the market.

    The figures are 3D sculpted, 3D printed, and resin cast. Airborne Miniatures has great Customer Service, but I think he only ships once or twice a week so after you pay, there is a wait time before he goes to the Post Office. I always got my kits though, no problem.

    Airborne Miniatures does accept PayPal.

    Thanks for the info, forgot to ask, how tall do they stand then ?
  12. Ong Active Member

    Figure sizes vary depending in the sculptor so it's best to ask Airborne Miniatures.

    Hi Steve,

    Being 1/9, they'd stand approximately 200mm tall. HTH
