Neat stuff!  Sold my Hornby years ago when I sold the bulk of my train collection and have had the urge to get more!

I wish I had an eye for art & detail to do modeling.  It takes skill!  Have you posted any of your work?

I have my old G.I. Joes from the 70's in the attic but not a collector.  The last time I looked at them they were pretty rough. I was sure I took better care of my toys when I was a kid, must be attic trolls playing with them.  I just don't know what to do with them.

I've had these for a long time, can't say they're lead, German soldiers for a long time, looks like they were part of a game, I don't know.
Troops lying on thier backs with wire cutters, boat crews, infantrymen, tanks.

Those are nice, rare figures Andrew.  I have Britains, Del Prado, Frontline and some older Dime Store figures. Whenever I run across them I pick them up.  I like the old figures but they are hard to find.
