Hello, Cheng ...

Your Afrika Korps has evolved beautifully !!! They really look great.

I think that Gordon's contribution is just what you needed ... ;)

I would also like to know the answer to the question that GaiusIulius asked, "Where did you get those great weapons?"

All the best,
Richard

Very nice Cheng! They look terrific!

And I will join the chorus: "Where did you get those great weapons?!?!"

hey buddies,
the one thing i didnt focus on(their weapons) seem to have caught your attention  ;D

those are scaled and pre-painted accessories and figures from Dragon or something...its been so long...i've forgoten 
...it was just for fun (in fact i didnt bother to use my gas-mask canisters, machinegun-clip holders, water canisters etc) ...i wont leave them with my klickies...they are too 'skinny' and not playmobil-like...too bad my focus was out, otherwise you can see the red german words on the Panzerfaust

Personally, I think those weapons are awesome and they look fine with Playmobil
If I could get mine hands on some WWII guns and other stuff for Playmobil that would be great...just don't know where to get WWII Playmobil stuff (but then again i haven't really investigated it)
Long live playmobil, and its fans, knights and garden wargaming!!! Hoorah!!! Yea, thats all...

I think those are Dragon weapons.  I have some of the mini Dragon figures.  They are about Playmobil height, and  similar to Lego.  I might be able to send a pic. if you like.

The Afrika Korps figures are great.  That era is one of my favorite.

Hmmm, interesting  :)  Where can you get these figures (or buy the guns seperately)

And, here's what that Dragon Models Ltd. figure looks like with a Playmobil head, hat and rifle ... ;)

(Note: Click on "Go West" in the Minis menu.) ... :)

All the best,

I bought mine from Legends Toys and Hobbies ...

You might want to contact them to see if the Dragon Minis are still available.

Also, The Toy Federation advertises that they have them now (see attachment)

My apologies, Cheng, for "threadjacking" your post. I thought that this might also be of interest to you ... :)
(I will move this, if you want me too.)

Here are some larger pictures.

(BTW, The Toy Federation advertises that they only have four left of each set!)
