Known as British Army No2 Dress Uniform.

All Ranks use this, with appropriate 'accessories' from the '70's (?) to date.

I'm not a figure modeller, so don't know of any models/miniatures of this uniform.

Does anybody make models of British soldiers from this era?

Tom,

Nobody makes figures in No 2 Dress (I'm assuming you require them in 1:35?) and the only figures in Combat Dress for the time are those metal ones produced by DJ Parkins in the Firing Line series. This of course, is the frustration most British Cold War modellers currently endure; you have no real option other than to convert - and this will involve endless experiments with Milliput, Hornet Heads and endless faff with weapons and personal equipment.

Should you wish to go up a scale slightly Airfix did produce a quite decent set of figures in 1:32 "Modern British Infantry" in soft plastic; these were all action poses. I recall that Chota Sahib and/or Cheshire Miniatures produced figures in 1:32 in No 2 Dress but these were, I think, restricted to parade stances. These were in white metal.

Just in case you wish to undertake something in small scale then Matchbox produced a set of "NATO Paratroopers", again in soft plastic and all action poses, but quite good quality.

Other than the Firing Line series (which are still available) eBay might throw up some of the above.
