 12" Action Figures
Hi folks,
Just like to share a few shots of some of the 1:6th scale (12" tall) military figures in my collection...

Squadron Leader Keith Gordon:

Following its expansion in Europe in the early years of World War II, the German Luftwaffe then turned its attention to the conquest of Britain's skies and the RAF.
The conflict that followed was known as the "Battle of Britain". It was during this time that the British and Empire pilots manned their Hurricanes and Spitfires against incredible odds, eventually winning the day against overwhelming numbers.*

Green Beret: "Eagle"
Image

Formed initially on July 9th, 1942 at Fort William Henry Harrison in Montana, the U.S. Army Special Force are today known as the "Quiet Professionals".
The use of the Green Beret was introduced by Major Herbert Bruckner in 1953, and whilst it was not regulation dress, its use spread throughout the Special Forces. The Green Beret was officially recognised by the U.S. Army during 1962 and today is standard issue.
The motto of the Green Beret is "To Free The Oppressed", and to uphold this they maintain a mature, highly skilled and superbly trained force of volunteers which rank among the world's finest unconventional warfare forces.*

F-14 Tomcat Pilot:
Image

The Tomcat first entered service with the US fleets in 1973 as a replacement for the Phantom. It is an all weather strike fighter capable of speeds over Mach 2 with an operational ceiling of over 50,000 ft.
The most characteristic feature of the Tomcat is the "sweep wing" feature.
Navy Tomcats have a 2 person crew comprising one pilot and tactical radar officer and the aircraft is capable of delivering 13,000 pounds including Sparrow, Sidewinder and Phoenix missiles.
Whilst not the most recent of the US carrier borne aircraft, the Tomcat is still an extremely potent unit of a carrier's firepower.*

2nd British Commando Unit: Private Robert Jones
Image

When Britain faced its darkest hour in 1940, Prime Minister Churchill sought a means to strike back at Germany. This led to the formation of the British Airborne Commando Units.
The first of these units was No.2 Commando, which was later renamed the 11th Special Air Service Battalion. Numerous Commando units operated effectively throughout Europe and on D-Day carried out airborne assaults into Normandy. In later campaigns they supported both the 82nd and 101st US Airborne Divisions and also carried out independent operation.*

Russian Spetsnaz "Falcon"
Image

The Russian Interior Ministry Spetsnaz unit known as the "Krechet" or Kondor was originally formed in 1991. Their role has changed over time and whilst stationed in Izhevsk, it is responsible to the Moscow Federal Government.
The unit recruits its members from the Airborne, Marines, Navy ant other special units and is today, Russia's premier domestic counter terrorist task force.*

Corporal "Paddy" Ryan

In February of 1943 the Australian Imperial Force troops left the Suez to return and defend their homeland and neighbouring regions against the Japanese forces.
The "Diggers" were involved in grim struggles against overwhelming forces in New Britain, Borneo, The Solomons and in New Guinea.
One of the most famous campaigns was The Battle Of Kokoda Trail in the Owen Stanley Mountains. During these campaigns the Australians became effective jungle fighters and halted the Japanese advance.*
