I had a few of these in my life when I was about 10 years old. They are the Rolls Royce of toy soldiers! Del Prado is a superb collection of hand-painted 7cm die cast metal figures issued with accompanying booklets by Osprey Publishing detailing each figure.
Amazing detail, and fascinating. But I was never quite dedicated enough to really enjoy them and get keep them in good condition – despite my Dad constantly saying. “Keep those in good kick and they’ll be worth something some day you know!”
