Looked just about everywhere so far and the only ones in that scale are a tad "pantomimish" (won't mention any manufacturers)
I had the crew for my USCG lifeboat made by
but they are a bit pricey although the detail is magnificent

Any suggestions would be gratefully received

i mentioned this method before on another site and was shot down about copyright ,anyway method is if you have a figure take it to a copy shop where it can be scanned and then 3D print at the scale required the other way is to get cheap toy soldiers as in toy story cut them into bits mix and match limbs scan the hybrids and print at the required scale .the asda up in my neck of the woods has a scanner that you stand in and get a model of yourself printed no copyright issues all the crewv could be clones of the scanned person

Looking for crew for your Tiger were you?? 😉
BTW: if you're going to put a sound module in the Tiger tank and want genuine sound bites: start up, (running with squeaking tracks), and stop, idle, shut down, gun fire, heavy machine gun fire: I have a whole directory of such sounds in wav or mp3 format. Can send if you want.
