That scales fairly nice with those figures. The zoo line and these must be fairly compatible.

Very Happy
Thanks guys.

Hi TT, Britains produced the majority of their toys to the same (1:32nd) scale.. their basic Land Rover must of seen at least 4 different re-paints: Military, Farm, Police & (for the Zoo series) a Safari version.

I bet no one here has these... Wink
This brand from the 60s (dissapeared) was El Huinca -that means "white man" in native language-. They were my very first soldiers and, as you can all see, they were a strange mix of american indians, cowboys and infantrymen.

Very cool indian figures you have Fito.

The base on that artillery crew really stands out. A nice repaint on that would make it blend much better as it is such a vibrant green it really doesn't look natural. That is a nice shot of the tank in the background of the line soldier, makes another good action scene.

Some new/old Cowboys added to the collection this week & I've found the last couple of pieces needed to complete the Indian canoe which I've had for donkeys years..

That rifleman is not too obvious he has a shorter leg, and from an angle could look like his knee was bent - making him the perfect figure to be taking pot shots on the brow of a hill down at a target.

Oh, the Britains US cavalry and infantry... I had so many of them, 7th Cavalry mounted and on foot, Civil War, wagon, Gatling gun... sold them all Sad  Funny how some of the mounted cavalry had moulded reigns for the horses and on other series the elastic bands unsure The ones I had iirc had the elastic bands too.
