Looking to do diorama of the Paras knocking out the tank at Benouville, 6/6/44... Using Tamiya 1/48 Mk IV, 'cause one version of the story has it a Mk IV and I have the Mk IV...lol.

Anyway, I need a British Soldier with a PIAT in 1/48. No luck on internet. Thanks for any info or direction.

1/35 would be better, Dragon has a PIAT gunner laying on his belly reaching back for ammo...as another guy is handing him a round. Bronco also has good figures.

Check out Warlord Games 1/56 scale Bolt Action British Weapons sprue . It's got a Piat and ammo case . Since these are made for war gaming figures , they are a little larger that 1/56 so as to be less likely to break when handled in a game.
