||New manufacturer on the scene
For a while now we have been watching a Polish company making a range of models for the German invasion of Poland in 1939. The name of the company is First To Fight, and they have now said that their first set of 1/72 figures will be released on 26th September this year. The set is for German infantry in 1939, and our current understanding is they will be in plastic, so we have now included them on our site. Assuming that understanding is correct, we will let you know when the set actually appears, and of course photograph and review them in time.
