Matchbox German Infantry copies 1:76

One of the cheaper and cheerful toy soldier arrivals I unwrapped at Christmas this year with some good old fashioned ‘vintage’ colourful packaging, bearing no relation to what is inside!

Lots of Matchbox 1:76 German Infantry copies in an American Infantry box? That’s the joy of cheap plastic figure sets!

Battling Aggie and the Bald Headed End of the Broom!

Beware the Bald Headed End of the Broom!

A simple scrap kitchen towel for a headscarf transforms one of Steve Weston’s 54mm plastic Mexican peasants into a spirited serving girl, scolding Goodwife or feisty fender-off of invaders from medieval to Tudor times through to the English and American Civil Wars and the Wild West onwards.
