    Re: Painting busts

    I was impressed by the painting, especially the hair & beard. I am converting a Britain's Beefeater into a Chelsea Pensioner, and the hair needs to be grey, preferably with some texture. I know this...

    Re: Any ideas?

    Yes I saw the links, very nice too. I agree they have that certain charm about them. If I do decide to repaint, I will be sure to post pics on here. Thanks JB.

    Re: Any ideas?

    Thank you Brad, you are as ever, a mine of information. It's nice to know there is no value, and I would really love to repaint, but as they were a handed-down gift, I may just leave them as is....

    Wow! Both of you have made me think about painting mine, although they do look original.

    Thank you Wolfgang, that is great to know. I presume they were made around a hundred years ago?

    Any ideas?

    I received this lot for Christmas, not the usual sort of thing I collect. I am assuming they are home casts. Anyone recognise the style?

    Re: Battle of Britain pilots ID please.

    Hi Brad. Yes I have searched the box, no marks apart from a warning about the dangers of lead toys. Perhaps there was originally a paper slip, giving details.
    jazzeum, thanks, I have just looked at...

    Battle of Britain pilots ID please.

    I received this boxed set as a birthday gift, they are 54mm, solid, and obviously there are no marks on the bases. The box seems a little generic. Anyone seen anything similar?

    Re: Who are we?

    Sorry, I can't help either, but I do like them. Are they 54mm? The bases look a little large, but the detail is brilliant.

    Re: Timpo GI Soldiers of WW2

    Thanks Jonny, I have actually started repainting the figure. I had repainted before, copying the colours that were present, but it looks like someone had been dabbling before I got it. I will be...

  14. Re: 54mm ID required please. WW2 Home front/ARP, possibly a re-cast Britains

    Just for interest, I have had these for a while now, and always assumed they were home made (Prince August) I am now thinking they may be by Gerry Ford:-

    Mike you have done brilliant! I suppose we will never know exactly what colours were used, but I will be doing something fairly accurate. I may even get some RTV & make a few more, all in different...
  18. Re: 54mm ID required please. WW2 Home front/ARP, possibly a re-cast Britains

    Thanks for the help Gents. I agree with Mike about someone being ticketed, probably for showing a light, but the helmet is blue. This is the same as the gas-mask haversack, which is a military issue,...

    Re: Modern wars please

    Wow! - I stand corrected! I have some 1950s Britains & Johillco figures, in Battledress, all bargains because of the low demand for the "boring" Khaki drab colours!
