Naked Army figures from downunder
« on: August 22, 2009, 01:52:35 am »
While the name is a bit off putting, these 1:6 scale figures are excellent quality.

Check them out at http://www.naked-army.com

The Vietnam era ones are particularly good, although the L1a1 SLR is a tad undersize (or the figure is of a particularly large man ;) )

I think the name is a reference to the fact that you can display the bronze figures 'naked' ie: not painted...
I also like the fact that they clearly realise thier name will be blocked by many firewalls etc, so they don't have 'naked' in the URL :rolleyes: I know with it there, my school would block it (then again, before we started tweaking the system, it blocked National Geographic)

It's such a shame they do Aussie subjects only, these look like really high quality and I would consider buying my dad a US tanker one.
It's a crappy self-made pic of a Lockheed Unmanned Combat Armed Rotorcraft (UCAR), BTW

Considering the massive quantities of American figures of different subjects that are available, its refreshing to see some Aussie figures IMHO.
