Since 1893 W. Britain has been producing toy soldiers and military miniatures with attention to detail, quality and authenticity. Each model figure is cast out of metal and hand painted to the highest possible standards. Their ranges include traditional toy style figures in 1/32 scale (54mm / 2.125" tall) and a large selection of realistic matte finished figures in 1/30 scale (58mm / 2.3125" tall). Most major time periods are covered from the eighteenth century up to the conflicts of the twentieth century. The story of this iconic toy maker is the story of Britain itself, as what happened to the company was often a microcosm of the many political and economic influences that Britain experienced during the last 127 years.
Toy soldier collector and Britsburgh member, Dave Frankowski, will take you on this company's journey from its beginnings to the present day, utilizing soldiers from his collection to illustrate his timeline of the company's history, an historical show and tell. Dave has collected British toy soldiers for over fifty years and will share a wealth of knowledge.
