Italeri sell a really good set of PT boat crew figures but they're 1/35 scale.

I had them on my 1/32 Perkasa, but I explained the size difference on the fact that the crew were Singaporeans and a bit on the short side

Hi nutrunner, you could try repainting these Delivery men! They are 1:43.

There are other 1:43 and 1:48 / 50 figures on this site as well.
The Japanese are 'little people' anyway. Not to be confused with the Leprechauns! 😉

Doug ,

All the Leprechauns I ever met were quite tall ,saying that it was always on St Patrick's day and seen through Guinness coloured glasses so their authenticity might be questioned 👍.Cheers Marky

not much more to do, stick on numbers -painting the lower part of the hull black sticking down torpedo tubes and 2 life-rafts and few coats of clear lacquer
