About the Book
King & CountryToy soldiers have developed from glossy pieces in 1/32 scale in 1989 to realistic matt finished miniatures with the launch of their Arnhem series in a larger 1/30 scale. This picture book charts the development of K&C toy soldiers into WW2 and a matt finish, changes that have transformed the hobby of toy soldier collecting.
The book also describes the tanks, vehicles, some aircraft and other material that K&C produced in this period, allowing more realistic dioramas to be created. Wherever possible, the photographs are set in a diorama setitng. They include many rare wooden and resin tanks, aircraft and vehicles providing an invaluable guide for the collector.
