    I am sorting out my 15mm British Malaya forces and need some motorcycles in 15mm. Does anyone know of any companies making them? I am happy to do head swaps, so a perfect match is not particularly necessary.

    Tbh, all my motorcycles, whatever the nationality, tend to be Peter Pig German ones, with a spot of light carving and filing on the riders and suitable uniform colours. No one has so far complained.

    Cheers Martin, that’s pretty much what I thought if doing, but using the PP heads range. I just wondered if there was any British specific 15mm out there…

    Captioned as Singapore 1941.

    Captioned as ‘Singapore 1941’. Colour photos of the Malayan campaign are as rare as hens teeth! As a bonus there’s a Morris quad with markings and a bit of a 4.5″ howitzer too. More here, Life tended to use colour film (Kodachrome) rather than colourised black and white film.. http://photo.cankaoxiaoxi.com/mil/2015/0324/716242.shtml

    A There are a couple of options if you want a British, as opposed to ‘generic’ motorcycle. Battlefront make (or made, they’re OOP) a Norton Motorcycle/sidecar combination in their BEF range, suitable for the period. You can leave the sidecar off too. Some retailers still have stock https://www.miniaturemarket.com/fow-br400.html

    The other option is the Airborne Assault squad in their British paratroop range. They ride Royal Enfield Flying Flea motorcycles, although the figures need modification. https://www.flamesofwar.com/hobby.aspx?art_id=3932

    That picture is excellent! I had seen the BF motorcycles, and they were an option. I couldn’t find a seller though, so thanks for the link. I quite like the Airborne ones as well… Thanks for the info! It will be very useful.

    I wanted the same for my 1940 BEF. Ended up using the Flames of War BR809 assault paratroop motorcyclists and doing a head swap with 1940 British. Results looked pretty good.

    Yes, I may end up doing that, as the early war motorcycles are prohibitively expensive!
