  1. Wow. Great collection
  2. I was about to say I thought the soldier looked French until I saw what Toyrebel wrote above, which explains that. I guess he is Mexican then. They are very nice with good detail.
  3. The one with the rifle is an Infantry Assault Badge, awarded for direct participation in an infantry attack. Bottom one looks like a Prussian eagle. Don't know what it was for. Looks like there is...
  4. Surprised they were still making those in the 80s. Good luck getting it running
  5. Always look forward to Matchbook Monday
  6. Nice teardrop. Is it really that small or the scale of that bike way out?
  7. Thansks jscotto. I haven't seen carnation powdered milk. They still make the condensed stuff though. Stuff - I didn't think it sounded very nice.
  8. Love the necromancer and the detail on the bookcase and table
  9. It is a nice looking one. Hope you get it running right
  10. Great graphics
  11. Very nice. How big is mini? Hard to get an idea of scale.
  12. Nice model. There seems to be a lot of the vehicle behind the rear wheels. Wouldn't want to put too much weight behind there.
  13. Nice. Good painting and you have looked after them well.
  14. Very unusual
  15. Lots to see there. I like the houses.
  16. It definitely doesn't look plastic in the thumbnails. Good detail. Quiz answer: Were you thinking a detachable magazine should never be called a clip.
  17. A proper winter wonderland. I like the gnow on the swing
  18. What an unusual looking heater. The steam punk people would be all over this.
  19. Super uniform. Looks good together and I think the red beret and canteen make it a bit more unusual.
  20. One of the best farm sets I've seen
  21. lol thanks Fort.
  22. Thats a real nice one.
  23. Nice colours. Looks a good size for one person. I would not want to fit a family of four in there for a week.
  24. Thank you Newfld & Fortapache
  25. That is a great set. In such good condition too.
  26. Yes Blunderbuss it is not far from Birmingham. It is essentially one man's collection of junk. The original owner did demolition and clearance work and salvaged a lot of items from being thrown away.
  27. It indeed has lots of character. I never understood why Britain made its number for Emergency services 999 by the time you waited for the dial to spin back round from 9 three times you could be dead.
  28. Looks like a real trailer interior. Fantastic.
  29. Vetraio50, thanks. Happy new year to you too. Thank you Fort & Keramikos, it is like that Corningware pattern isn't it.
  30. I like the aqua colour too. Merry Christmas Fort.
  31. Santa during his 1970s ABBA period
  32. Wow - you have a whole army of santa dolls. I hope they don't fight with the gnomes.
  33. Great. I would have loved that as a christmas gift.
  34. That interior with the different compartments is outstanding. Nicest one I've seen from that period.
  35. Not seen one with an anchor before. Good find
  36. Nice, usual piece of history.
  37. Nice set.
  38. gobble gobble
  39. Cool and thanks for the history lesson
  40. Very suitable for upcoming halloween
  41. Wow I love it. The box too.
  42. Nice to see some of the older cars.
  43. Always good to see old police cars
  44. Super! Very detailed for such a small scale.
  45. Now that is pink!
  46. Nice selection and I would say that is pink!
  47. Lovely barn and animals. Excellent condition.
  48. That's good Scott. In UK the knives have to be carried to meetings or camp by parents and given to the troop leader who will hand out the knives only when a specific activity requires them. Then they ...
  49. Very good ones. Are scouts still allowed to carry knives on their uniform like that in these days of health and safety?
  50. Just what I need (but maybe bigger than Matchbox size) Pickfords are still going (i think)
