Yet - as Airfix always did pairs of Friendly/Enemy sets - expected to face-up to the earlier set in time WWII German Infantry, a view backed-up by the fact that they were replaced with new sets at the same time?
The lower OBE image establishes a war games rule...all British blankets are green! In point of fact they are all a brownish-grey (I had to immaculately fold them day-in, day-out so I should know!), but war gamers have decided otherwise and who am I to argue with them.
I like the orange and blue army below mine, they will be a 'secret army', based on the armies who always finished a James Bond movie back in the day, Felix Lighter would turn-up at the 11 hour with a bunch of black-clad Air America types, while the Bad Guy's forces ran around in colour-coded pyjamas...dying or surrendering!
Best-effort award here is probably given to the simply-painted ammo-carrier in the centre of the parade...or the guys at bottom left? Do you recognise yours? Your dad's?
Crescent mouldings) and Airfix's Infantry Combat Group, the Trojan's are far larger, being placed in the Skybird's established aircraft modelling scale of 1:72 while the Airfix figures are toward the HO end of their flexible HO/OO moniker!
"Hell, every toy-shop's got 'em, lets just make em smaller!". I think someone may have once said...
Side by side comparison (a size comparison will follow) with the Britains/Herald figures upon-which this set is not only 'based on' but lifted from lock stock and two...who's figures are the stretcher-team based on...Marx? MPC? Solido?....no, I suspect the first version Subbuteo St. John's Ambulance set - probably by the same sculptor; Nibblet, - or even the Britains other range; the Swoppets?
I've posed the figures to match the poor image which has suffered from being photocopied out of a magazine (TV Comic, October 6th, 1962), probably mucked about with in software, photocopied again for publishing (Cluck, Vol.1, Radcliffe) transfered to disc, cropped and mucked-about with again (by me!) and finally collaged.
There is a better picture here;
Sugar Puffs Model Army
Note also that 12 figures are to be collected...ignoring both the fact that two of them are identical (the stretcher bearers) and; that one of them (not illustrated on the pack's art-work) is dead or dying! The guy being shot notable by his absence from the publicity, but clearly included in the packs. Can't be having that sort of casualty on the breakfast table...a chap nicely wrapped in a blanket is OK, but blood and gore is a no-no in the nation's morning routine!
