Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

Hi, I just brought myself a 1.32 scale farm building by Britain's which i intend to transform into a Rorke's Drift store building (much cheaper than a smaller version of a Rorke's Drift building for triple the cost) . I will post a picture of it when I'm next on a computer and not my phone.

Can anyone tell me the best (Unpainted) 1.32 figures there are out there please. I've used 'A call to arms' figures in the past which were ok but I really want to take my time with this one and make it into something special so for that reason I would like to buy some really nice figures. Any help and advise would be most welcome. Thank you.

Dave

Hi Dave.

There are some good model makers on the forum, one of them is The 1stLt Zulu War, and another good modeller is Richie.

Richie I think makes the larger scale models, which are brilliant, so maybe the best person to ask would be The 1stLt Zulu War, have a look at some of his stunning work, you will be amazed.

Salute

Hi Dave
I'm not a model maker but I do collect toy soldiers along with unpainted military miniature models both metal and plastic. Conte Collectibles offers 3 sets each of both British and Zulu plastic figure which I've painted with a nice selection of poses. In England you can obtain them from http://www.charliebrownssoldiers.co.uk/ or in the USA direct from Conte at http://www.conteco.com. For metal casting I know Tradition of London provides Metal casting which can also be purchased from US dealers who carry their figures. Hope this has been of some help in what your looking for. Looking forward to seeing your transform Rorke's building................The1stLt
