I have seen on a few different places Engineer Basevich is releasing two more sets to go along with the Revolution series. They will be in different colors again. So far I have seen blue and brown. They are cast in plastic in 1/32 scale. I found some of these pictures and information on the Engineer Basevich website.

“So, “Engineer Basevich” with special pride presents a set # 30 “Commanders of the White Guard”. The set includes Kappel, Skuro, Drozdovsky and Ataman Semenov. Why are they, you ask, and begin to shower with no less worthy names? I agree! But such is the author’s decision, and although Kappel and Drozdovsky were already represented in my earlier sets on foot, I felt that they were no less worthy to lead your armies and on horses.”

There is a timeline for a new one for the 31st set of soldiers of the ENGINEER BASEVICH – “Leaders of the Ukrainian Revolution of 1917-1921 R.” , and on behalf of the Director, Simon Petliuri, the hetman of the Ukrainian State in 1918, Rotsі Pavel Skoropadsky and Old Man -otaman Nestor Makhn. The fourth iguroyu set є petlyurіvsky colonel Petro Bolbochan. Hai live in Ukraine!

East Coast Toy Soldier 2019 Review

The Show

The Show1The Show2

Yesterday I attended the 37th Annual East Coast Toy Soldier Show & Sale. After a 2 hour drive I arrived about 10 minutes before the show started. I went to the back of the line of about 100 people waiting to get in. I waited about 5 minutes before the doors opened and there was another 100 waiting behind me. So around 200 people entered as the show began. I heard from vendors that the show was well attended and they did good in sales. After 3 years of declining crowds it had bounced back.

The Show3The Show4The Show5

So after about a two hours I went out to get my camera and took a tour around the show which we shall see soon. I found a few more things for my collection. I was not really searching for anything in particular but I did find a few things for my collection. I will do a separate post about the items that I did find. I was not able to get every vendor in the post. For the article I used about half of them present.

The Show6The Show7The Show8

It was another successful show. I had a good time talking to the vendors and other collectors. The time flew by quickly. I noticed more younger people at the show. There were more couples and families too. I think the show will keep growing with the basis being toy soldiers. But will have more vintage toys as time goes on.

That concludes the review of the show. In my next post of will have pictures of the items that I purchased. There was not enough time for me to take more pictures and then edit them. This probably is my last show for the year. I hope to have some more posts on different subjects and any news when it comes. Thank you for reading.
