March 28th Updates.

 

Hey folks. We are wrapping up the month of March and heading into Spring. We are working on our April game calendar and will have that on the next email. In April I have the Wings in Wheels Show, Havoc Wargame Show and the Gettysburg Toy Soldier Show. I am just back from the London show and I brought back some goodies to sell and a head cold! The show was a lot of fun and I took a few days to myself to sight see and visit some old pubs. On the day I landed I ventured out to East London to Wapping. I visited the "Prospect of Whitby" an old pub were "Captain Kidd" frequented and is on the list for the 10 oldest pubs in London. I crossed a lot of places of my bucket list on this trip.

We just received some much needed game restocks! Stop by and browse. I have also been adding some W.Britains and King and Country to our retired sections. I have a few other "deals" in the works for some more nice collections. I am starting to sort out some Timpo and other plastics from the massive collection I got a couple of months ago. I will add some links and pictures soon.

London Show

March 23, 2024

 

I had a great time in London this past weekend. Above I am with my old pal Sam Watson from Belfast and Stefano from Italy.

 

I picked up some Italian themed figures from Stefano and a pretty good haul from the Tommy Atkins/Fusilier Miniatures. I will offer the items in the shop to some regulars and then bring to some shows this Spring.

Above is a view from my booth. It was a mixed model and toy soldier show. Attendance was higher than when I usually go in June. The first 2 hours were quite busy and then the show slowed down pretty quickly. Unlike the shows over here people were still showing up and buying right up to the end of the show.

 

 

 

Below is a picture from part of one of the trade rooms.

All new April John Jenkins Designs now available to order!

Wow! Check out this amazing diorama. One of our long time customers asked me to make a diorama for him. I said I just didn't have the time. I put him in touch with another long time customer and friend in the same area. This was the result!

The diorama mainly consists of John Jenkins Designs Viking and Saxons which we supplied. all 1/30 scale and most of the terrain used was Woodland Scenics which we also sell. Joe and Alan discussed the project and after about 2 years it has been completed.

 

Here the Saxon Shieldwall trys to repel the Viking invasion!

 

This is one of my favorite time periods. I am a big fan of all the shows and movies that are out there about the Dark Ages. "The Last Kingdom" on Netflix is by far my favorite.

Here is the beginning of the diorama. Laying it out to see what fits and works.

Attack and Defend. I think this picture has a few Conte Collectible figures in it. The diorama is about 90% made up of John Jenkins Designs.
