  1. Noticed there are 2 versions of AIP WW1 US Marines/Doughboys

    I've been getting interested in WW1 figures lately, with Veteran's Day/Remembrance Day coming up. I dug out my AIP US Marines at Belleau Wood that I haven't looked at in years since I bought them in...
  2. Best glue for Conte Canadian made rubbery plastic?

    I glued my Conte figures' arms and weapons etc. in with Loctite Superglue, but it never seems to make a permanent bond. I'm always having to re-glue things. Is there a better, more long-term glue...
  3. Re: My home-made Mexican carreta / tumbrel cart

    Thanks! I kind of cheated with the wheels. I just glued two thin wooden discs together for each wheel and etched them with a pocketknife for the plank look. I used little wooden furniture plugs...
  4. My home-made Mexican carreta / tumbrel cart

    I wanted a two-wheeled Mexican cart to add a little color to my Southwestern and Mexican setups. BMC and Marx both made carts like these, but I haven't had any luck finding any lately, so I decided...

    Re: CARTOL Canada

    I grew up in Canada, and I had plenty of Carzol wild west ringhands figures. I think they were licensed by MPC. I never saw the WW2, Pirates or Civil War figures, only cowboys and Indians. I am...

    Re: Unproduced Esci?

    It was a bummer for sure. But it wasn't actually for a diorama, just an informal series of solo tabletop games (translation: playing with my army men). I wound up using the Esci Warsaw Pact figures...

    Re: Dantas inferno playset

    I think they're very appropriate. Every time I eat there, I suffer the tortures of the d***ed.

    Re: Dantas inferno playset

    A couple of artist brothers have made extensive dioramas of Hell using model and toy soldiers. Their names are Jake and Dinos Chapman. Here is the Yahoo image search gallery:

    Re: Unproduced Esci?

    Even today we don't have a regular Middle Eastern army in either 1/72 or 1/32. There are Mujahideen and Taliban from Mars and AIP in 1/32 and the Ultima Ratio and Mars Mujahideen and the urban...

    Re: Unproduced Esci?

    Here is the new release page from the 1993 Esci catalog. Unfortunately, they never were released by Esci. I got this from PSR website.

    Some of these sets (medieval and American Civil War)...

    Re: Armies In Plastic Mexican Revolution

    Great pictures, Scott! I use my AIP Japanese for Federales as well. I don't have all the wonderful buildings you do but I am working on it. I don't have the Boers or Spanish yet, but I use Reisler...

    Re: The Unknown Rifleman

    I also had a bag that I bought when I was about nine in 1974 and I too did not get the marching man or the grenade version of the waving guy. I've only ever seen those poses online. Never knew they...

    Re: 1:32 US NAVY SAILORS in COMBAT

    Is this a conversion or an original sculpt by you? The posture is one of the best standing shooting poses I have ever seen. If it is a conversion, what is the base figure?
  14. Re: Italeri WW2 AT Gun and Infantry sets... WHY!?!

    It's quite noticeable when they are side-by-side. Gary, BTW, I still intend to send you those figures for conversion. I'm just a little side-tracked right now. Sorry for the delay.

    Re: Big Package from AIP!

    Christmas came early for you!

    I've mastered the mailbox-to-toybox sneak myself, but never with such large quantities. I salute your skill at hiding your toys from the boss!
  17. Re: Italeri WW2 AT Gun and Infantry sets... WHY!?!

    Don't get me wrong, I really like these sets and plan on getting their Soviet counterparts soon. I just was a little dismayed that two sets from the same range and scale, from a major manufacturer,...
  18. Italeri WW2 AT Gun and Infantry sets... WHY!?!

    ^&confuse

    After several years of stalling, I finally ordered the Italeri PAK 40 & servants and the Elite German Infantry and I have one huge question... Why on earth would Italeri release 2...

    Re: Star Wars Plastics?

    Don't count on getting Darth Vader or the droids. I ordered both sets from Amazon last year and neither set had the "special" figures. I didn't bother to complain because I already had plenty of...

    Re: Star Wars Plastics?

    Star Wars figures in the 1970s would have been great, but what I would have killed for was a soft plastic Planet of the Apes toy soldier set. I had the 1/32 MPC figures but they were made of this...
  23. Re: Ever wonder what an AIP WW2 range would look like?

    Wonderful figures! Can you tell us more about what parts went into the French? I think I can identify Airfix legs and some 21st Century bodies. Did you sculpt the Polish officer yourself? These...
  24. Re: Ever wonder what an AIP WW2 range would look like?

    AiP is an abbreviation for Armies in Plastic, a company that makes plastic toy soldiers. They have ranges for WW1, British Colonial Wars, French & Indian, ACW, etc. Nice figures but far more...
  25. Ever wonder what an AIP WW2 range would look like?

    Metal soldier company, Regal Toy Soldiers of New Zealand, seems to have the same sculptor as many of the AIP figures. Many of the poses in their other ranges are identical to AIP's. Did AIP...
