King & Country at the toy soldier show

The team from King & Country were over for the recent London show and this rather magnificent new Vietnam diorama was the centrepiece of their stand.  The post WW2 era has never really appealed to me but I know a lot of people collect this stuff and the standard of terrain modelling on K&C dioramas is always inspiring.

I think K&C only attend the December show these days, trawling back through old photos I noticed that I never got around to posting the pics I took of their display last year, I'll remedy that over the next few days.  In the meantime let me wish you a safe and peaceful Christmas.


  1. I admire the talent etc but I confess that despite how well done this display is, it doesn't inspire me. Too close, too realistic perhaps? (Given that all war is hell?)

    None the less, Merry Christmas!

    1. And a very Merry Christmas to you Ross.

      I have to admit I had second thoughts about posting these pics, as I started to add text it brought back memories of the newsreel footage we got on TV when I was a boy, it all felt a bit to too recent and too realistic.
