I have finally painted my OOHO Airfix British Paras after forty odd years, these tiny cousins of the much pirated pound store copies of the familiar 1:32 version 2 British Paratroops.
Trivia fact – The scarce Version 1 of the familiar 1:32 Paras from 1969 were large copies of some of these OOHO figures. Now scarce and mostly crumbling, I have about three bashed ones of them left.
More Airfix OOHO images on the original blog post … enjoy!
As one source of scout figures for Wide Games, you can always convert cheap plastic figures from pound stores such as I have done with these 32mm plastic figures.
To read more about how this was done, read the post from my main Man of TIN blog:
Girl Scouts in their fullish Edwardian Skirts could also be produced in the same way as I adapted metal Boy Scout figures https://manoftinblog.wordpress.com/2019/05/17/wide-games-and-the-early-girl-scouts/
