How it began

I've been collecting military miniatures from the age of six. It all began in 1968 when Mum and Dad gave me a pack of Airfix HO-OO scale Sheriff of Nottingham figures. These were in exchange for a pair of tonsils that I apparently didn't need any more. I still remember twisting the grey pieces off their sprues, lining them up on my bedroom floor, and attempting to attach the riders to horses with glue that never really seemed up for the job. Fast forward more than forty years, with a few hiatuses in between, I'm still doing much the same.

  1. Airfix figures have a lot to answer for. I remember the figures well. I'm in the same situation too, forty years later, still playing with toy soldiers. Look forward to see more on your blog.
