Back from a lacklustre and totally arctic Car Boot Sale, I'm relaxing watching the news with a large mug of hot coffee.Typical mixed April weather, warm one day and absolutely freezing like today. However, summer is on the way. Yesterday I heard my first Cuckoo of the year and saw my first Swallow, but as my Lady Wife says, one Swallow doesn't make a summer! Just browsing through Ebay, other than the always-interesting SWORD/SPACEX offerings, a few leftfield odds 'n' sods have caught my eye this week like this amazing multi-wheeled FIRECAT. It reminds me a lot of the articulated SWORD Snow Train, which features prominently in the 1969 SWORD Annual.
Similarly this white VW Bus resembles the more obscure SWORD ANT, which also appears in the SWORD Annual. And every space base needs personnel and there have been some interesting toy astronauts for sale including these bagged SPACEX-like LUNAR SPACEMEN with a nice header cards.
And finally, googling for LP there appear to be a few blue and white LP spacemen for sale at Plastic Toy Soldiers, an online store.
Keep on Swordin'.
