Inside the War Room


Recommended Posts

I started a topic in this section for my helmet collection, but I decided to add more general collection pictures to their own topic. What you see is only half of the collection, the other half is packed in ALL the crates, tubs and containers you see in the pictures. As time goes on, I'll try to get pictures looking into all the different containers and bins. I hope you enjoy!

It was made by a company here in the US called 21st Century toys that specialized in making WWII vehicles and soldiers. It's plastic and 1/6th scale.

Holy smokes! I like the couches in the middle of the room, you can just go chill out and be surrounded by all the treasure!

 

Even the couches are a tasteful shade of OD!! :D
