For those of us of certain age , you may well remember these. Thnere is some original artwork by Roy Cross coming up for sale via Vectis auction house if you are feeling rich. I have bought and sold stuff through them before and they are good to deal with
check out lots 190 204.

Whew, it's mostly the art from aircraft kits. If it were toy soldier sets I'd have to mortgage the house.

The artwork for the British AWI (grenadiers attacking uphill a log-built fort) is the best Airfix artwork ever!

Do you agree, sir?

Certainly among the best!

BTW Just last week saw some pics from a recentish UK show featuring a model/diorama rendition of the box cover of the Bristol Blenhein. Apparently it wasn't the only one. Will try to dig up details on Monday.

I must confess that the US Marines


and Japanese Infantry


box covers have a memorable place in my adolescent memory.

The show I mentioned earlier was Scale Model World 2011.

Here are some links:


The site has a big forum area dedicated to these with plenty of progress reports:

I really like the Blenheim:

I see they have the 54mm Polish Lancer in the boxed kits, and what I think is the 1/12 Bengal Lancer. Nice models, both of these.
