More than likely a Model 12 S&W, although holstered it hardly matters. If it comes on a resin figure I’ll buy the whole figure just to get the gun. Right handed.
Most Verlinden 1/35 stuff is overscale, and actually closer to 1/32, so you might want to look at their stuff. I know that they have some M1911 .45s in holsters. Also have a look at some of the old Airfix 1/32 Multipose figure sets for holstered pistols. I don’t know of any revolvers, but it’s a starting point.
The Verlinden Cobra Pilot and USAF Pilot Vietnam both have holstered revolvers. Both are 54mm (1/32) as well.
Thanks to both of you for your replies. Verlinden was the first company I looked at (Wow, I never thought I’d type those words) and I did indeed find the USAF pilot. However, as it is listed as 1/35 on the box I moved on, hoping to find something in 1/32.
It is odd though that they would make that figure in 1/35 when there are no fighter aircraft in that scale. After closer examination I’ve decided to purchase it based on the fact that yes, a lot of their stuff was overscale, and even if the figure is truly 1/35, that revolver looks Dirty Harry big compared to the figure.
Try the Airfix multi pose figures in 1/32 scale. I think one of their British soldier (Europe or North Africa) should have one.
They may have other useful parts too.
The two Airfix Multipose British sets definitely have holsters but they are 1937 pattern web ones. The US Marines set also has holsters and it is possible to carve them into a revolver holster.
I converted a 37 pattern one and .38 Enfield (from the same set) to an open top RAC holster but the Enfield may not look like whatever weapon you are trying to depict. Still, it shouldn’t be that hard to convert to what you want.
I’ve already ordered the Verlinden pilot - even though my fear was the gun might not be large enough, it turns out it might be a tad too large. It seems I made a false assumption - that the revolver was a S&W Model 10 or Model 12. After asking my friend about what he carried, it turns out it may well have been a Colt M13 Aircrewman, as It fits his description - a Colt .38 Revolver that was not .38 Special. Of course the M13 was not supposed to fire .38 Special loads due to the aluminum cylinders they came with.
At any rate, I don’t imagine folks are going to dwell too much on the gun, but I did want something close to what I’m trying to represent.
