What figures are available depicting Imperial Japanese Army marching soldiers and officers on horseback? I'm considering a small diorama showing the IJA parading through Saigon, French Indochina.

Fine Molds makes a set of marching Japanese infantry. They are dressed in the tropical uniform. Modelkasten makes a set of figures, one of which is depicted on a motorcycle but he could fit on horseback with some work. I don't know about resin.

Russ, thanks for the information. I'm heading toward depicting a Saigon scene during the next Trouble in South East Asia Campaign. Finding figures for this region and time frame is a bit of a hunt. Not like finding German figures for the North Africa Campaign during WWII.
