General Discussions / Re: What's Warlord up to?

Warlord US infantry is out in the next month or so and the Perry ones, we’ll they only had 2 greens done and it’s a side project so let just say “at some point”.

Rubicon infantry aren’t the same as the perry for scale, they are noticibly more slender and to scale. That said, I think you can easily get away with mixing and matching Rubicon and Perry without too much issue.

I see - no wonder they look better than the current Warlord US Infantry.  I assume we won't see them released in less than a year.

I think Rubicon have modelled their figures on the Perry dimensions.  They're not true scale.

Best match I have found is "Width Marker"

There are examples on this page:

Kerb feelers are the inverse of Width Markers, but they are on the same page.

[Edit] as Pinky said.

They are usually referred to as “width indicators” or “width indicator poles”.  They were driving aids so the driver knew where the edges of the mudguards were.

I think this is a photo of a Tamiya SfKfz 223...

Width antennae?
(Sorry, that’s a guess, I don’t know the answer  ;D)
But I think that’s what they were there for....

Can anyone give it an offical name for this piece of wire?
We know it is a bumper or fender guide...



Thanks!
