    Re: Real or fake?

    They've owned Guard Corps for ten years, at least, or however long it's been since Alan Silk and Ed Lober passed. FCL did the casting, at the end. I recall hearing talk shortly after, that one of...

    Re: Britains Redcoats Series & Bluecoats

    I agree that they're nice figures. The quality of the sculpting is excellent. And yes, I wish there were more poses, not just from the 1st Foot Guards, but for the other regiments, too. It's too...

    Re: Britains Redcoats Series & Bluecoats

    I'm always on the lookout for the 1st Foot Guard, 1756, especially the grenadiers and hatmen, and beyond that, the other regiments stationed here in the French-and-Indian War-the 35th, the 45th, the...

    Re: Making some moulds

    Those came out really nice, Norman! As good as any commercial product, I think.

    Prost!

    Re: Charles Hall Edinburgh

    Hi, Norman!

    A couple of months ago, in one of the toy soldier Facebook groups, there was a collector who posted pictures of unpainted Charles Hall castings he had acquired. Those caught my eye,...

    Re: Replacement Bayonet??

    Not to take business away from John, but he's in Oz, and you're in Florida. Shipping back and forth might prove costly. So you might want also to PM jazzeum. He has contacts to a painter in Jersey...
  8. Re: Refurb of old hollowcast Mounted Indian Cavalry

    Al, have you tried putting a small piece of poster tack putty under the bases? A ball the size of a BB, flattened out, should help keep them from pitching over. I use it for figures I have in...

    True, the embargo was the last in a string of political moves that drove certain factions within Japanese leadership to decide to attack, but that was by no means a unanimous decision.

    Re: What are the Forum members reading

    What a coincidence-I was thinking about that very topic on my way in to work this morning. I don't remember what triggered it, but I was thinking about the scenarios under which Germany could have...

    Re: The Army of Frederick the Great

    I should add that the castings I got, like yours, John, are in good shape, in their primed state as they came from the studio. I've also gotten some individual pieces recently, that were just...

    Re: The Army of Frederick the Great

    You probably beat me on those, you SOB :tongue:

    I've won a couple, too, but there was one lot that I particularly wanted, 7 Prussian grenadiers, but I was outbid in the last seconds. I could see...

    Re: Woodland or Cornstarch

    I would not use cornstarch for snow. It can spoil over time, as it reacts with moisture in the air. It can also attract bugs. For the same reasons, I don't use baking powder, which can contain...

    Re: Larry Allen's Model Ship Collection

    Nice work, Larry!

    Have you ever seen anything by the Connecticut Marine Model Society, http://ctshipmodels.org/index.html ? They specialize in wooden ship models.

    Re: Shootings In El Paso

    This is why I offered the clarification above. No one is talking about arming teachers-forcing people to carry weapons who don't want to and are not trained. I heard of no such programs. That is...

    Re: Shootings In El Paso

    "Arming teachers" is a bit of a distortion. That implies handing weapons to teachers, regardless of what they want to do, then providing them training, etc. No one proposed that. It would be more...
  17. Re: What do you do with your tin soldier armies?

    I have a small house, a Cape Cod. I don't have much room to display them, but I display as many as I can. Some are in a barrister in my living room, using the space in front of books and things on...

    Re: Shootings In El Paso

    That's hyperbole. While horrific, it's hardly a pandemic, and they're not happening "all over the world".

    Well, the builder did a great job with it, with that gloss finish. I thought at first sight that that was a die-cast collectible, possibly even commissioned and sold or distributed through the...

    Re: Shootings In El Paso

    Regarding the "epidemic", it's interesting to go beyond the media and look at the FBI's own count, compiled in this document here:

  21. Re: John Jenkins Designs JAG-03 Hessian Jager Corps, 2 Jager Skirmishing

    Check eBay (US eBay-www.ebay.com). I saw this set go up last night, $80 initial bid, or maybe it was Buy It Now. The same seller also had the set with the hornist, also for $80. I don't know how...
  22. Re: I trod on one of my soldiers, a clan chief

    Pictures would help, but failing that, yes, pliers with cloth wrapped around the jaws to protect the piece should work. I'd even use pieces of wood between the jaws and the piece, to protect it from...

    Very cool!

    Matchsticks are a good source of material, too, as well as wooden coffee stirring sticks.

    Re: 2019 Baseball season

    I wonder how many of those strikeouts were at-bats with 5 or more foul balls with 2 strikes. That's the real place MLB needs to look, to speed up the game. Limiting mound visits, taking away the...
