I see two sets of New Hope Design figures listed, and not for a too-steep price.
I have no experience with this manufacturer, can anyone tell me, if AIR7214 British fighter air & ground crew 1914-16,
and AIR7218 brit. fighter air & ground crew 1917-18, are worth considering?
There are not so many figures around for WWI planes, right?

Can't help you with these specific sets, but I have some of their 54mm figures. Going by those, I'd say they're probably nicely done figures.

Thank you! I´ll bid on one set. The pics in the auction are blurry, but the proportions seem to be ok!
(I found images of figures of this brand, where the heads were over-sized.)

Not knowing which specific figures you refer to, I can actually think of a pretty good excuse for this in some cases. They did a large number of 54mm figures based on the artwork in the Osprey "Men at Arms" series. Some of the illustrators for that series had a tendency to rather oversize the heads. They may simply have been sticking to the reference material.. :roll:

So, I ordered RFC air & ground crew. I´ll do a small review, once they come here.
