Hi Les,
Almost any half decent Online hobby shop will have some.
There are also some who specialise in scale figures; e.g.
http://peoplescale.com/
Google "Model figures" and you'll see hundreds of possibilities from all over the world. Attached are pics of the 1/35 crew for my PT Boat that I recently bought from a German online store. Found within 5 mins of searching! These are kits, but there are also several suppliers of complete figures, sometimes already painted. "Bejeesus 'tis the little people!" 😉 Cheers Doug 😎

Hi Dave, Lucky man👍
Since some odd experiences with E-bay last year I've been reluctant to use them🤔 Maybe time to give 'em another chance.
Cheers Doug 😎

I have the same set as Doug (RN inMunich) that I am going to use on my 1/32 Perkasa. I know the figures are 1/35th before anyone tells me. But that slight difference won't make a lot of difference to me. Cheers, Dave 😊

Hi Dave, 32 - 35, so what?There's big and little people 'in real' as well 😎
I use a mix of HO (1/87) and 1/72 on my 1/72 ships. The littluns don't look at all out of place. Doug 😎
PS as long as they are not all huddled in one place!! 🤔
