    Hello,
    I know that D-DAY Miniature Studio is not so fortunate name to realease WWI figures but this subject is so interesting and I decided to make a few guys. I am planning four figures. One british tanker, a british officer, british soldier and german POW.
    First is a british sergeant - Tank Corps. Wearing one piece tankman coverall and holding a jacket hanging down on his back. Btw I wrote that this coverall was blue, orange-khaki?? and black. Does anybody know what blue color should I use later for the boxart.
    So here are the progress pictures. Scale is 1/35!
    Hope you like it.
    Cheers
    Pawel

    I think with the release of 1/35 tanks this year you're on to a winner here Pawel.

    I was asked to do 1/35 by a lot of people when Tamiya and then Takom announced their new Mk IV kits, but that would have taken my focus off 1/32, so its great that you've picked this up.

    No doubt there is a market for this scale and certainly with the type of troops you are spot-on!

    From memory I think the early coveralls were denim, but I'll check that!

    Thank you very much Mark, Adrien, Carl, Lopee, Taesung and Darren! Thank you for your kind opinion! Darren, I thought about the market of course, but I also want to sculpt something, that is new, fresh for me. So if you have any info about this british tank coveralls, please share with us!

    Hello,

    I can't wait to see the Tanker completed. It will go nicely with a Panzershop Mark II I am finishing. Here are some references from an old issue of Military Illustrated from September 1991. I have other reference photos which I will scan over the weekend.

    Somme Tanker Plate.jpg Osprey Tankers Plate.jpg

    Hello Pavka,

    As promised, here are other color plates of WWI British Tankers. The first plate is from The Somme 1916, Crucible of a British Army. The second is from Osprey Men At Arms 402, The British Army in World War I (2). Both were written and illustrated by Mike Chappell. I was lucky to purchase the original Osprey plate several years ago.
