    Re: Queen Elizabeth II With Throne

    Hi Elifaz, and welcome to the Forum! The Coronation Chair is Britains 86D. It has a couple of missing pieces - the floor under the Stone of Scone, and the seat. You can see the parts in the...

    Re: repainting old Britains

    Here's a link to Ron Ruddell's suggestions for colour-matching Britains paints. He told me that pre-WWII, the company employed a craftsman who mixed the colours from raw pigments. Postwar, the...

    Re: Pirate Castings

    I think Andrew's OK with his version of that pirate - Ideal went out of business way back in the 20th century. Marx had an 8 piece set of pirates in 60mm, and then more from a playset that was never...

    Re: Pirate Castings

    243758 The Ideal pirates are beautiful sculpts. They were made in a rubbery material and crewed a rather cramped and under-gunned ship. The "repops" I got are made from the original moulds in hard...

    Re: Pirate Castings

    The bald fellow with two pistols was originally plastic and in a set of six issued in 1953 by Ideal, but without a base. They've been reissued and are available from some toy soldier dealers.

    Re: Vintage Cavalry

    This is stil only a guess at the maker, based on style. Reka was in business from 1908-1932, and then Crescent bought some of the moulds and produced figures. (Info from Joplin's book.)

    Re: Vintage Cavalry

    The two brown-horsed guys look a lot like the gilt Reka figure, #8, pg 104 of the Rose Toy Soldiers book. It's a smaller-than-1/32 scale figure. I couldn't find anything closer, nor anything like...
  12. Re: Advise please, no ide what these are and no idea of value? Old Britains [i think]

    I should have added that there's some of us who get great enjoyment out of taking old, damaged figures like these and restoring them to their original, or greater, glory. Check out Johnnybach's...
  13. Re: Advise please, no ide what these are and no idea of value? Old Britains [i think]

    This thread should be placed in General Glossy Discussion - Glossy Identification.

    It's a collection of British hollowcast figures, mostly by John Hill (and at least one Crescent), as far as...

    Re: "New" AIP Napoleonic Cavalry Sets

    I have to add some words of praise for AIP's customer service. They had mixed up one item out of five in my order (a simple number error), so I emailed them about it. I was told the set I ordered...

    Re: More Info please

    I believe Britains also made the figures for Chad Valley's Escalado game. They are in a smaller scale.

    Let's say the figures strongly resemble these ones in Britains' set 1613. Same fabric creases on the officer, same plug-in arm articulation on the men. The most glaring difference is that...

    Hi Ted, and welcome to the Forum! Nice score on the figures. #1 is Britains set 1349 RCMP, summer dress. I'm guessing the two white horses are repaints; the horses should be dark brown and black....
