Nice.

Any chance of a non military rider option?

Currently there is only the ex-Wargames Factory bikes in plastic in 28mm scale.

I would love to see a BMW in plastic in this scale.  The crew would probably make or break it in terms of appeal - some dynamic crew figures would really sell it as a kit.  Especially if you could include some DAK figures.  It's still a rather small model - I wonder if it would make sense to package it with a Kubelwagen?  I suppose you could have 2 bikes per box.

That is the problem, the model is small but how many parts are required?

I know I have seen Bolt Action rules for motorbike infantry, but do not know where, or how many are needed for a unit.

Even two bikes and a Kubelwagen in a two sprue box would feel a bit expensive. It would make a great command unit though, great for behind the lines scenarios.

So.. Maybe a box of 5 bikes/crew with the parts to make one of them a sidecar?

I like U.S.A. most of all but the idea of these to tie in command is appealing   Things tend to get left out when metal are 5-8 £ each, plastic and several in a box is cool. Same as your jeep, in most real WW2 shots there are 3 plus, so two with so many options make life grand.

The studio is now as busy as it can gets - OEM projects, new releases, and our own ongoing projects!
Still managed to upload this for your preview... a diorama base for the BMW!


Enjoy~

Yes, I like that.  Is the base size intended to match any particular game?
