Read somewhere that Walt Disney drove an ambulance in the Great War.

I am very happy they are producing these models. The uniforms and boots on the figures however are incorrect. The Model T will also need a lot of detail. I am wondering how the fit will be?

The Disney photos look like the Mexican adventure.

The uniforms are only inaccurate for US casualties. If a US ambulance servicing French, Italian, Serbian or Commonwealth armies the figures will work. The driver is wearing a typical volunteer driver uniform to include the tall tie-up linesman boots which according to most memoirs were the preferred footwear. Too bad the driver figure wasn't also female. If I get this I'm tempted to do the wounded in horizon blue and source some Adrian helmets for Serbians. I read an account of the Serbian retreat which featured volunteer ambulance driver's and it would be a different take on it. Might be too hard to make them Ruusians or US. But Australians or Canadians could be done.

Hi, Bravo1102! In what - the uniforms for US casualties are inaccurate?

I wonder if the wear a white uniform or something "camouflaged". I think the theme "Nurses in the Great War" is still to be researched. Read somewheer on teh net that the Nurses Corps of all all armies suffered high casualities, not from enemy action but from diseases.

The collars in the set are stand/fall collars typical of Commonwealth uniforms for example. US collars in WWI were stiff tight stand collars which had been abandoned by most other armies. So as I said in my previous post the wounded could be almost any army except American. And US volunteer ambulances serviced most other allied armies on all European fronts. US service ambulances serviced other allied armies on the Western Front and in fact saw action before US troops in the AEF. I would be very tempted to do the wounded as French or Australian.
