This World War 2 lady dispatch rider is actually a 1/9th scale 'tank girl' made of the hard plastic unaccountably known as resin. She is about eight inches tall and she was an 11-part kit that I bought via eBay. The bike is the Italeri 1/9th scale Triumph 3HW, an excellent though fiddly kit to build.

Very Nice !  :)

We also have the "Show Off Your Figurine Collection" topic over at the Other Dolls board if
you would like to contribute there. I saw all sorts of kits for anime figurines while at the
Anime-Expo for those do it yourself folks.


Take care! litlluvr, Yoshe, Amiko, Marla, and Michiko.

"Leaving it to the imagination" is highly overrated.




Sandy is a B6 F1 Realdoll. In addition she has several F1 expression faces as well as standard F10 and f11 faces. She also has several sets of reuseable "Real Breast" prosthetic breasts.

...just look at the spokes on the bike, incredible  :thumb:
The spokes are molded with the wheels. Each wheel consists of left and right halves, which you glue together. When fully set (so the next day) you fit the solid rubber tires. The spring in the middle of the front fork assembly is a real metal spring, as are the rear seat springs. There is even a spring attached to the rectangular stand with an over-centre action that holds the stand up (as in the photos) or down -- with the back wheel off the ground. Unfortunately, on mine at least, its built-in stops don't work so it does not actually work as a stand. No problem: The side stand works. It is not spring loaded, but it attaches to the frame with a tiny little clip when in its stowed position. And it works -- as you can see in the photos.

It is a very good kit. It is just that it takes a while to build because it has a lot of parts, some of which are very small. (Individual nuts and washers in 1/9th scale!)

Here is another photo:

The Sten gun came with the bike, incidentally. Everything else she is wearing came with the 'tank girl' resin kit of 11 parts.
