Now, let’s get down to basics….
1. AVAILABLE NOW THIS MONTH!
Following the great success of our “Desert” version of this vehicle we had many requests for an European olive green one… and here it is…
Painted in standard British Army olive drab this particular “Katy” is in the markings of the 3rd. Infantry Division which fought in both the Fall of France in 1940 and the Normandy Invasion in 1944. Our “Katy” is suitable for both kinds of displays.
FoB041 “Stretcher Party”
Two soldiers carry a wounded “Tommy”
out of the frontline and on to the nearest First Aid Station… perfect to go
Also note Stretcher Bearers were armed… unlike medics.
FoB045 “French Motorcycle Combo”
A great little set… and very unique… Two French “Poilus” take a momentary rest in between delivering important dispatches from Headquarters to the troops in the field.
It’s often forgotten that the US Cavalry was
fighting Indians well before the Civil War… books, television and the movies
have always tended to focus on the Indian Wars of the
King & Country’s newest series is throwing the spotlight on the earlier struggle before the outbreak of the Civil War… This first small release is just a “taste” of what’s in store… with three mounted U.S. Dragoons confronting a five-man Commanche raiding party… Take a look!

FW043 “Kneeling Ready”
A sergeant, rifle and bayonet in hand, charges forward with two other riflemen in support.
FW045 “Dead Casualty”
Here’s one unfortunate lad who won’t be going home to Blighty!
Carrying his wounded mate over his shoulder this Tommy might just win a medal… if he survives the deadly German machine guns.
This corporal used to bowl for his village cricket team… here he’s bowling a “Mills Bomb” at the Huns!
FW048 “Lewis Gunner”
Lying prove behind some sand bags this Lance Corporal provides covering fire for the advancing troops.
FW049 “British Mk.IV Heavy Tank”
A superb model of the most produced tank of the Great War. Armed with both cannon and machine guns this metal monster terrified the enemy and provided much needed close fire support for the “PBI”… the “Poor Bloody Infantry”. Our K&C model is in the markings of “Cavalier” one of “C” Squadron’s vehicles of the newly formed Royal Tank Regiment.
Our latest additions… six new figures… 3 Mexican “Soldados” and 3 new “defenders”.

Still wearing the full battle-order this “soldaten” is weary but happy his battle is over… for a time.
A superb little 2-man vignette… As the young infantry officer stands stiffly to attention a General fastens the ribbon of the Knight’s Cross around his neck.
As the Battle of
France was coming to a close another battle was about to begin… “The

arrogant Luftwaffe airman has had his aircraft shot down… over
In this little scene he is closely guarded by an old Army Veteran now in the uniform of the “Home Guard”… Dad’s Army… Standing, notebook in hand, a typical unarmed British “Bobby” is taking down details of the captured pilot… A great little 3-man set… Sorry, though, you need to find your own crashed German aircraft.

In August 1942,
British Prime Minister Winston Churchill paid a surprise visit to see

Additional pipers and drummers are available as “singles” to increase your band or as individual figures.

In front of them is the 8th.Army’s General Montgomery… Driving the vehicle is a Corps of Military Police sergeant.
