    This is the bottom shelf of the curio (before I add two more shelves) which has K&C panzer grey vehicles. I just counted the number of Wheels and Tracks sets that I have on display in the new curio...

    Re: My King & Country Acquisitions Blitz

    Yikes! I didn't mean to make anyone jealous, but I just wanted to share my incredible good fortune to be able to acquire a substantial K&C collection in very short order.

    Here are a few photos I took of the actual Culloden battlefield. Actually, there isn't all that much to see as it is today. Hopefully, in the future, they will ultimately add informational plaques...

    Astray (and Franco) was requested by the collector who originally ordered the set. You are correct that he would not be normally associated with the Nationalist General Staff, but is none the less...

    Terry,

    You are right about an Acquisitions Blitz being exciting. I have mostly succeeded in not going overboard on buying excessively pricey items. So far, I have not paid more than $200 for a...
