Hey all,

I am looking forward to a weekend off this week. Then after that, I am back on the road! I will head to Maine, then Texas and Virginia, and then the show season will be done! I think 'NH" Joe will accompany me to the London Toy Soldier show at the end of June. Let us know if you will be attending. Next month marks our 25th anniversary. I am planning some events for June. Stay tuned. 



We have started to sort the 700 model kits. Mostly 1/72 and 1/48 aircraft, but also some ships, including about 40 1/700 scale waterline kits. We got about 100 out on the shelves....but we ran out of room. If you want to make an appointment to dig through them, let us know. We had someone in yesterday "digging and picking."


We are running the Chicago Toy Soldier Show this September! It will now be called the "Chicagoland Toy Soldier Show!" We hope to see you there. We will be sending out more information soon. I added the hotel link below if you want to attend and book a room.


Above is an incredible diorama made by Steve Pyle. This is made up of mostly Expeditionary Force and LOD soldiers. We carry both brands. Some of the pieces have been scratch built. Note the fake hand! Steve has been a longtime customer.

We had a blast at the MFCA show last weekend. Here is a cool Warhammer Army that was on display at the show last weekend. It is a pretty unique show that attracts artists from all over the world. There are super high end models, figures and dioramas from "master class" painters on display. Awards are given to best.

This is a diorama made by one of our customers Steve Pyle. He loves to convert Expeditionary Force figures and make unique dioramas. He had a few on display at the show and won an Award.

We finally got a restock of Vallejo Xpress paints back in. We also just got a restock of Monument paints in.


The Monument paints have blown my mind. So many people in the shop are buying them!
