I must admit I didn't hear about U-Models so far, but their figure releases seem very interesting. A lot of accessories as well... most dedicated to naval modelers. Mario

Nice looking figures, thanks for sharing, great poses for the two officers. If the seaman is manning the helm, I don't think he would be wearing binoculars. He could be used somewhere else I suppose. If you look at the bridge on the Vosper, the officer to starboard (UM148) has a raised place to stand upon, but the officer on the port side (UM149) doesn't have as much to stand on. It could be a problem. I'll probably pick up the officers, not sure about the other. Al

Anybody know when these figures are going to be available? They are not even listed on the U-models site, nor anywhere else. I really like the two officers and want to add them to my crew. Al

Al, I would suggest contacting U-Models directly... some model companies don't update their on-line catalogue on a regular basis so it could seem the product is not available for purchase. Mario

Mario Thanks Mario, I've already done just that and will let you know what response I get, if any. Al

Come on Al, do it the old fasion way. Go down to the watering holes at the dock and just wait for some poor drunk sailor to stumble out and shanghi him, or to be politicaly correct, impresse him into service.

FYI, I had sent an e-mail to ADV/Azimut inquiring about these figures, and received a response today stating that they would be available in their web-shop shortly. Good news indeed, as I really like the two officers, and plan on adding them to my Vosper crew. Al

Well after all this time, they 've finally made an appearance. They are now listed on the Blast Models website at 12.50EU apiece. Al
