I hope everyone is having a good Memorial Day weekend. It is a time in America that we show our gratitude to the men & women that sacrificed their lives for their country.
This Saturday June 3rd is the Virginia Toy Soldier show. Eddy Gries has been promoting this show for a while now. This year I will be setting up as a vendor. This is the first time we will attend this show. If it is like the show in New Jersey there will be a little of everything. Painted metal toy soldiers, plastic toy soldiers and military related items, books & toys. I think there are about 75 tables for this show. Hobby Bunker will be present. I will be bringing my resin Warhorse Miniatures, LOD/Barzso plastic & resin toy soldiers, a few Russian resin toy soldiers, some foam products and some vintage plastic toy soldiers. I will have a review about the show in a week or so. If you are not too far from Annandale, VA stop by and say hello.
Carolyn found this Hardy horse drawn fire engine from a friend on FB a few weeks ago for $10. I think it is missing a couple firemen that would be placed on the back. It will go with my Hardy Wagon that she found a few years ago.
I found this Bum Pirate set for $20 on eBay. It was something that I was hoping to find one day. I will paint the black set of figures in the future.
Jeff Imel of BMC has plans to remake some of the Classic Toy Soldiers figures sets. Jeff says, “I’m pleased to announce that Jim & Dave over at ‘Classic Toy Soldiers‘ have agreed to pass along stewardship of their plastic injection molds to VictoryBuy. In the coming year I’ll be introducing the BMC Toys ‘Classic Toy Soldier Collector Series’ that will bring the impressive CTS catalog of Louis Marx & Co. style figures and accessories to the toy market. CTS will continue to offer their amazing playsets to the Hobby market for the foreseeable future. A huge thanks to Jim McGough and Dave Payne for all their help with this massive project.” You can read the latest update over here, https://bmc-toys.myshopify.com/blogs/news/bmc-toys-production-roundup-june-2023.
I finally added the Saxon Potter shop to my store page. I changed the shop a little. This set has changed a lot since it was first designed. The Potter and helper have been changed. Also, I added the boy to this set. It is $85. For more information you can head over here, Saxon Potter Shop – 1/32 Resin.
After the show in Virginia, we will be heading back to Gettysburg on August 27th. I am still working on the British sets, hopefully by the end of June. More testing with different resin mixtures and always something is being designed or planned. I hope to have some more updates on my next post. That is it for now, Thank you for reading.
