Hello

I am currently busy with a 1/35 model of a MK1 male (Otazel) stranded at the Gaza beach in 1917

see pictures

I want to put a figure with the tank , but there aren't much WW1 figures, let alone Gaza figures....

Now I found a WW II figure from "the Bodï"

and my question is : can I use this figure

I don't konw much about uniforms and don't know if this is a suitable uniform forthe Gaza setting

If not what should be changed to get it right

hope some one can help me

Although the Bodi make quality products and the figure you post is fine for WW2, if you want to be accurate I don't think it would work unless you want to do a conversion. Too many differences between WW2 and WW1. In Gaza, would they be wearing KD type clothing for hot climates?

D-Day miniatures has a couple 1/35th scale figures, a tank crew NCO and a staff officer. Pawel Krasicki sculpted and painted them. I think several more tank crew are planned. Neither of these figures is wearing KD unfortunately.

High caliber miniatures / Stalingrad products make a five figure set of 1/35th scale British tankers. http://highcalibreminiatures.com/collections/stalingrad/products/bigset-of-british-tank-corps-world-war-i/ Again, none of them are in KD.

Suggest a search of GWF for KD uniforms. I think there have been several posts. The three attached photos show non-tankers wearing KD, I believe.

I don't know how experienced a model maker you are, but be aware also that not all 1/35th scale products match well enough to be used in the same vignette or diorama.

All the best,

Dan
