I'm thinking the BA Flak 88 is a re scaled 1/48 Italeri , it didn't come with a crew . Funny enough , Italeri (or maybe it was Tamiya ) re boxed it awhile go with a bunch of Tamiya 1/48 German figures and ammo boxes , but they aren't the 3 round wicker boxes usually found with the 88  because Tamiya dosn't make them , and the crew were just various Tamiya  Afrcka Korp figures not actual gun crew figures .Epic fail IMO

These must be a replacement for the current US Army figures.  They do look better.

Supposed to be the M43 pattern uniform , good for North Africa , Italy and was wore in Europe by some units till the end in 45 . Should be a nice set , 3 sprues of 12 figures ,( 3 kneeling , one prone per spue ), plus a command sprue of 4 figures . Do Perrys fit in with Rubicon's style of figures , I know Perrys  look odd with the BA heroics ?

They’re the perry ones, not warlord. Although warlord are releasing new US infantry soon.

Scale wise, it’s not too bad. If warlord is heroic and rubicon is true, Perry is somewhere in the middle towards the true side.

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.

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.
