Tinplate models
Through my 'proper' job I was lucky enough to go to the Canton Fair in China late last year. This twice yearly event features makers from all over the Far East selling everything imaginable.
Whilst there I came across a stand by a company called R&D Company who specialise in the manufacture of tinplate toys/models, although not relevant for my day job I had a quick look around and grabbed a copy of their catalogue as the models on show were so good.

They literally make hundred, if not thousands of different items from push bikes to tanks to planes, many of which are military themed and look about the size for us toy soldier collectors.
I didn't see prices, and I suspect they are only interested in trade/bulk orders but hopefully our retailers who read the magazine might get in touch and start stocking some of these models as I believe they'd sell rather well in our hobby if the price is right.
