“KUNG HEI FAT CHOY!”
Or, Happy New Year in Chinese. This Lunar New Year is the Year of the Goat
and may all of us at King & Country in
wish all of our dealers around the world a very happy, healthy and
prosperous New Year.
“COLLECTOR COLLECTS SOME PRAISE”
“COLLECTOR”, our brand-new, in-house quarterly has received a very good
response from both dealers and collectors for its first edition.
General comments seem to be that it is a useful selling medium and a good
source of background information on K&C and our products. As “COLLECTOR”
will be a long-term, ongoing project we would like feedback from dealers -
both good and bad! Plus, any requests for articles on any aspects of the
hobby and business you might like to read about. All suggestions gratefully
“SO WHAT ELSE IS NEW?”
Late last year I told you about the complete redesign and resculpting of our
seriously politically incorrect “LEIBSTANDARTE SS ADOLF HITLER” Series.
Well, the work is now complete - the masters carved…cast…and
master-painted… all 24 original, all-new figures. Most will be available
as single pieces but included are two very special sets.
Here is the breakdown…
LAH25 SS Rifleman presenting
LAH26 SS Rifleman standing at
LAH27 SS Standard Bearer
LAH29 SS Blood Flag
LAH30 SS Rifleman
LAH31 Obergruppenfuhrer “Sepp.” Dietrich (Commanding
LAH32 SS Fife & Drum Band. 1 Drum Major, 4 Drummers, plus 4 Fifers - all
LAH33 Haupsturmfuhrer Joachim Peiper (Reichsfuhrer Himmler’s adjutant)
LAH34 Standartefuhrer Karl Wolf (Himmler’s Chief of Staff)
LAH35 Reinhard Heydrich (Himmler’s Deputy and Chief of the dreaded SD)
LAH36 Leibstandarte’s own Drumhorse, “Sigrune”
LAH37 SS Standard Bearer at attention
LAH38 SS Bugler
LAH39 Algemeine (General) SS
LAH40 The new Hitler Staff Car. This six-wheel Mercedes contains a
standing saluting Hitler; his SS chauffeur; a seated SS adjutant and 3
seated SS bodyguards.
LAH41 “German Lamposts”
Set of two typical 30’s style German lamposts. One
carrying a Nazi banner and the other an SS banner - great to line the parade
