  1. I am a bad human because I forgot your birthday. Hope you had a nice day. I'll take you for a drink at the Fox and the fan to make up for it. That sure sounds like the name of a British country pub.
  2. Very cool. Never seen that before. Seems like a fancy version of battleships.
  3. Interesting to know, thanks freiheit
  4. S&B is for the maker Slack and Barlow, of Sheffield, England. Never seen 'EPRS' marked before, normally you would expect it to say EPNS. Its strange because it looks like there is something under it ...
  5. Freiheit - My interest mostly started while studying for my degree which covered a big section called total war and social change which focused heavily on Germany in the 20th century. I find interesti...
  6. That is a Kent Ambulance Service vehicle, from where I used to live in SE England. Not sure why they seem to have the Alps in the background of the picture then.
  7. I've seen museums with less. Super collection.
  8. Thanks guys
  9. Great collection. The victim in the cage looks like Wonder Woman.
  10. Wow looks like it has never been out of the box
  11. Hi Blunderbuss, Not many fakes yet, apart from the more high end medals and officer's daggers. Something particular to the late communist era are the huge remaining stockpiles of unissued uniforms and...
  12. Thanks freiheit and fhrjr2, and thanks for the extra info.
  13. The horns on top of the cab are a nice touch
  14. Looks like a lovely thing to have. Shame it had to go but appropriate it was sold to a stamp collector.
  15. Definitely looked like a real one from the thumbnail. Nice find.
  16. Nice, and I see the hidden cat. Is that the correct hat for the airman? It doesn't seem to fit with the rest of the uniform
  17. Both look good and nice accessories. Do their uniforms fit GI Joes?
  18. excellent looking uniform.
  19. One of the more unusual things i've seen on CW. Very interesting.
  20. I like the chain idea. It suits the display.
  21. I do like two tone paintwork like the station wagon
  22. very realistic. Love the movie Theater
  23. Awesome collection. The rectangular canteen is unusual, Think I've only seen round rounds before. Is it a newer one?
  24. Cool. I have the later one that doubles up as a wire cutter.
  25. Superb collection
  26. Really unusual. I love it.
  27. Wow that atlas moth is huge.
  28. Cool. Never knew there was an 'official' Scout bike.
  29. Nice set with a super amount of accessories.
  30. He has a great shop. Thanks for sharing.
  31. Love the box. That thing that looks like a phantom pair of legs is very strange.
  32. Congratulations on post 2000. CW should send you a special badge.
  33. Great chopper. Would have loved to have had that as a kid.
  34. I think it was a whisky jar. The internet says "William Wallace and Co were one of the principal spirit firms in Scotland, and makers of 'The Real Mackay' whisky" Also Kilmarnock is known to be a...
  35. Nice. Toys don't always have to be mint and boxed to be worth collecting. LCC (London County Council) was in charge of operating ambulances from 1930s to 196os until it was amalgamated into the New ...
  36. Nice slider
  37. Amazing collection
  38. Looks good in yellow. Glad you had a successful Rose Bowl.
  39. I think the strangest thing was that a mouse had a pet dog.
  40. Super sign
  41. Wow. Great collection
  42. 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.
  43. 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...
  44. Surprised they were still making those in the 80s. Good luck getting it running
  45. Always look forward to Matchbook Monday
  46. Nice teardrop. Is it really that small or the scale of that bike way out?
  47. 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.
  48. Love the necromancer and the detail on the bookcase and table
  49. It is a nice looking one. Hope you get it running right
  50. Great graphics
  51. See more
