Making a British Toy Soldier from Start to Finish

British Toy Soldiers


Painted metal toy soldiers were once the playthings of children and British toy soldiers set the standard for the world. Toy soldier collector and Britsburgh member, Dave Frankowski, will take you through the steps of making a traditional, glossy painted British guardsman toy soldier.
