A7V by Akheton in 20mm and one of their troops.
Side view with Airfix solder.
World War One Germans built about 20 of these tanks and I don't think any two of them were the same.
I have 14 of them.
WWI Airfix German, with a new helmet.
Focus on the tank, these are metal tanks. I have plastic, vacuform, and resin versions.

Figures by Akheton and Airfix.
Tanks are metal, I think they are by Akheton too, 20mm.
I have had these at least 20 years and probably longer.
Little plastic fences just showed up one day on their own. I have no idea where I got them.
World War One Airfix German soldiers. What two things are unusual about this figure? Post a comment in the comments if you have a guess.
A group in the attack.

Visited a swap meet / toy show the other day.
They had a Grateful Dead bus.
Not sure why someone would make a Grateful Dead bus, but here is one.
It may be repainted.
I also got these two old timer vehicles.
The fire truck is a real truck, not a suped up hot rod. It's a Athern-Fox made between about 1924 and 1930 they look about the same. They stayed in service until at least the 1960s with many agencies.
That's a long time fighting fires. I may get a few more.

I found this at Hobby Lobby. It's a collection of snow men.
This card also, it's a collection of Christmas figures and items that are about 1/72nd scale.
I got this at a local school swap meet.
A very nice armored car.
It has been painted up as a police bomb squad vehicle.
I think it's pretty well detailed.
