Kids are meant to play with toy soldiers, not just look at them! Put 54mm plastic toy soldies with Bold Frontiers (www.boldfrontiers.com.au) forest tree sets and you have great scenery for a skirmish battle game, with lots of adventure, action and excitement.

This simple box of HO-OO Scale Plastic Toy Airborne Soldiers had more influence on me to become one myself than I can express today. I am proud to say I was part of America's tradition of brave Paratroopers. I am glad that dream did not stay stuffed away in some kid's toy soldier's box. OooRah to AIRFIX Toy Company!
