J3512 British Para officer WW2
and
J3513 British Para WW2
will be available after Euro Militaire from Jakrei Stockists

It just struck me that today 17th September is the 63rd anniversary of the start of operation Market Garden and we have two news stories, this and the Mastrbox story, about British Paras.

I shall be watching A Bridge to Far later tonight. Now all I need is a second mortgage, and between MB, Jakrei, and Resicast I should be able to fill my Oosterbeek dio with enough action. Or maybe a Landing zone dio, with a resin Glider (to go with the Glider Pilot?) , or ...... I like the figure with the Sten, his smock looks like the pockets are filled, an often overlooked detail. Cheers Henk

Thank you all for the kind comments! I wanted to mention that Maurice has done a superb job with these figures!!!! Also, these will be cast in resin. There are some interesting and also unusual figures coming over the next few months, maybe even a German or two!! Best Pete Jakrei

Now THAT is interesting... They do look like beautifully-sculpted figures though. Oh, don't forget the Glider Pilot Regt. either
