Where can I get 28mm or 1/48 French WWII era tanks or tankettes? I can only find the Bolt Action ones, but their quality doesn't look too flash.

Hi mate try, solido diecast its 1/50 so pretty close to 1/48, ebay and collectors stores online is your best bet, also gasolene , I think the spellings right, lol its a french company that do 1/48 resin kits and conversion kit's, some kits are pricey.

Hope it helps

Yes, as I mentioned in my first post, Bolt Action.

IMHO Westwind/Berlin or Bust are too small. The best stuff is solid cast resin in 1/56th scale (usually with metal details) from Company B, JTFM, Army Group North and Warlord.

JTFM has THE most extensive portfolio of 1/56th scale vehicles -- period! Far more than anybody else, including Warlord

Aarmy Group North has good selection of early war vehicles: agnminiatures.com

Another option are Corgi and Solido 1/50th scale diecast vehicles, you can get them from eBay and model companies, and Solido stuff direct from Quarter Kit (in France, GREAT etailer!) They also have a lot of 1/48th scale kits, including their "Gas.O.Line" line of kits that have a lot of obscure tanks, and cool big tanks like the Maus: http://www.phpshopxml.com/quakit.shop

Other 1/48th scale include Tamiya and Hobby Boss, and you can often find Bandai and Frog kits as well.

cheers
Matt
