Airfix Wagon Train and Red Box Cops
Mr. Karcuss asked to see a comparison between the Red Box Cops set and the old Airfix Wagon Train set.
The 50 year old Airfix set holds up very well in comparison.
A figure from the old Airfix Cowboy set as well.
Civilians will work well together from these sets. Rural America was not too different from about 1850 to 1950 in many parts of the country.
The Airfix figures have better surface detail and less flash than the new Red Box figures.
