Taking advantage of a break in the foul weather and painting the ceiling, I dashed out to take a few snaps of this lovely lot of Multiple Toymakers armoured vehicles.
I scored them ridiculously cheaply on ebay recently, although the Marx Long Tom Atomic Cannon is an earlier purchase and a long sought after toy.
The simple plastic toys are vacuum formed plastic, with rigid tracks and rollers underneath, but the odd designs woukd not look out of place on the Moon!
Coupled with a random assortment of odd toy soldiers, I coukd be right back in 1971, sprawled on the lawn playing war.
Multiple Toymakers were prolific in their day, making our favourite space toys, western and army sets and Planet of the Apes toys too. You can see more on the fabulously comprehensive Plaid Stallions site.
