BMC sent me a set of their new Army Camp Equipment to review.
It's made in the USA and it's a re-cast of the old Marx camp accessories from the 1950's.
Given that these molds are as old as me, and in better shape!
You get three pup tents, two stacked rifles, one bazooka, a set of trash cans, and three crew served weapons, all in 54/ 60 mm size.
In camp, or in training, the US Army used to stack their rifles like this so they were off the ground and they were all together for security.
More troops historically died of disease than of wounds in combat, so field sanitation was a must.
The separate bazooka is a great little toy.
It's the 2.5 inch super bazooka, used late World War Two and post war.
