    An update - the maker, Luis, has a facebook page, which he has invited me to view, where he is "printing figures in resin on my own for Customers at a high quality and much better prices."

    May be of use to you.

    Thanks for the tip Doug.
    Just received 10 figures, purchased from the link you sent, working out about Β£6 each, which includes shipping and handling.
    The detail and quality is very good, though the photos don't do them justice.
    Very pleased.

    Thanks Doug. I've just looked at the link and there is certainly plenty of choice. Just compared the cost with Deans [Β£6.29 each] and a set of five at Shapeways [Β£24.13]. Got to be good.

    Cheers

    Hi Steve,
    "As you say, Doug, there always seems to be a dearth of RN crew, whatever the scale."
    Shapeways is a good tip though.
    Have a look here. A selection of RN Officers, POs and Seamen.
    Don't worry about the funny scales shown.
    I've looked at several and they can all be done to the scale you want.
    I strongly suggest that you contact the maker and discuss the material and surface finish you want before ordering.
    Some time ago I bought some 1/35 PTB guns in this 'Frosted' material, and found the surface a bit rough and needing smoothing, with acetone or dichloromethane or similar.
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    Hi Bill
    These seem to be just what I'm looking for so if you could find out where they came from, that would be great.
    Also, I will take you up on your kind offer of the figure and will pm you with my address.
    Thank you and a happy new year.

    Hi Steve.
    Please find attached photographs of the figures I used on my 1/48 Corvette.
    I can’t for the life of me remember where I got them but will dig out the box and get back to you if interested.
    Note the photo of the white metal figure... one of which I used and he stands on the stern. This was painted by me.
    It is spare to my requirements, so if it is any good to you it’s yours if you give me an address.
    Regards Bill.

    Thanks for all the info chaps, I should be able to sort some figures out now.
    As you say, Doug, there always seems to be a dearth of RN crew, whatever the scale.
    Thank you

    Or these Steve,
    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tamiya-Military-Model-1-48-WWII-B...

    British and German Afrikakorps WW2 troops make a good basis for navy personnel.
    Back in the 60s I shanghaied some of my Airfix British 8th Army and some Afrikakorps for my 1/72 H class destroyer and some 30 years later for my Type 1A U-Boot U25. Cheers, Doug 😎
