Gettysburg Museum Diorama Pics. Part I

Hits: 27

I found those pics (as usual) in facebook… I did not knew this diorama existed at all… I was fascinated!

There was a time when I did specific Posts on anniversaries… you know: 18th June Waterloo; 25th of June LBH; 1-2-3 July Gettysburg… etc…etc…etc… found that highly irrelevant nowadays because everybody else does!… so I prefer Posting when something gets my fancy… and prefer “quality” (my subjective opinion) to “quantitie.

The captions or pics do not need explanations or comments at all. (Quite the last moments of Pickett’s charge)

Ray Daunter’s “FIND”… and what a find!… heavily converted Britain’s.

Sometimes one stumbles upon an interesting Post in Facebook, by the way it is explained they were bought in a bunk or as a full lot or collection.

This is what the author qualifies as a find (a rare find in my opinion) because even if Britain’s did do soldier “to be modified”… the level of attention here is awesome.

Looks as if the original owner wanted Russians of various periods and not finding them commercially had a go at onversions (a twin soul of mine somehow).

I was really impressed.


Mainly Russians
More of them
Some here look like Lucotte
Hours of work
General view!

I know… those pics are NOT Toy Soldiers at all… BUT I could not resist it!… lovely modeling and basing and pics!

So you will forgive me from eluding my normal kind of Post. They are presented in Facebook by Mark Freeth… and the author is Yarkshire gamer (from Yarkshire Reet Big Wargames Group).


I used to do plastic REVELL ships when young… and even assembled one with my eldest son when he was young (eons ago!) Who did not?

General Perspective

New additions to my Collection from Dorset! 54MM (Imperial Miniatures nowadays).

It could have been titled “The Art of Waiting”… but to be fair the deadline of the 30th of June has closely been respected (more or less). Ask for Antony Spencer if you need something… quite helpful and to the point if you know what I mean… a worthy successor of the retired Giles Brown.

What’s Important… really important is the magnificent painting job done on those Toy Soldiers… sometimes they do not like Toy Soldiers at all… as the Duke once said : “By God they frighten me!”

Will post again when received and added to the rest of the Collection.


The lot.

Turcos detail.
Tirailleurs Senegalais.

A bit of Pomp and Circumstance. The Household Cavalry (DUCAL 54MM)

Hits: 31

There are parts of my Collection that do not move at all… they were completed to my satisfaction and that’s that.

BUT… if I started anew they would be the first one’s I will build… see what I mean?

The British Household Cavalry Life Guards and Blues&Royals is that special part of my voyage ineludible because I was always in awe of the magnificent pageantry and display.

So here you have them in all their splendid uniforms.

Alan Harrison’s beautiful (and magnificent) Collection!

Those cabinets are very similar to mine but they include vintage Toy Soldiers by Lucotte and other niceties I can not afford… also is much more bigger a collection than mine… Congratulations!


More exotic!
Quite mixed subjects
Lots of Cavalry
And more…
Say WOW! if you please…
