THE PLASTIC FIGURES
Manufacturer’s Designation and Number of Poses:
The plastic figures have been released by three different manufacturers.
Figure “B” was originally released by Accurate in box 7201 “American Revolution, American Militia.” After IMEX bought Accurate, they included this figure in an expanded set 511, “American Revolution, George Washington’s Army.” Finally, Revell re-released the original Accurate set as 02561 “American War of Independence, American Militia.”
Figure “D” was included in Accurate box 7200, “American Revolution, British Infantry," as well as IMEX set 512, “American Revolution, British Redcoats.” It also was released by Revell in 02560 “American War of Independence, British Infantry.”
Each Accurate box contains 50 figures, with 17 poses for the British, and 16 for the Americans. The Revell releases are identical.
IMEX changed the mix to include 2 new mounted poses and 3 new foot poses in each of their boxes.
7200 (British) Height (measured from sole of foot to eyes): 22mm.
7200 (British) Height (measured from sole of foot to top of head): 24mm.
7201 (American) Height (measured from sole of foot to eyes): 21mm.
7201 (American) Height (measured from sole of foot to top of head): 23mm.
Availability and Cost:
Although Revell is not currently producing these sets, IMEX still seems to have them in production. They can be found through various plastic model distributors, and at hobby shops.
Notes on the Samples:
Some of the sample figures were donated by Liam Sullivan.

The focus of the blog is to help plastic wargamers select metal figures to complement their forces, and vice versa. To do this, it presents a series of images comparing various metal ranges to plastic ranges for similar subjects.
