    I'm having a clear out. Lurking in the roof I found a bag of Action Men who have been hiding out there for about thirty years (last owner is now over 40). They also seem to have some AFVs. Can anyone tell me what these are modelled on please? (Yes I know the middle one is a horse).

  2. Left Ferret Mk5 without turret, and left Saladin with approximation of Scorpion turret.
     
  3. The one on the left is a Ferret, and the one on the right looks like a Saladin hull with a Scorpion turret.
     
  4. One in the middle is a horse. Hope this helps

    It always irked me that the Infantry Major outfit that I possessed for my own AM had the 17th/21st Capbadge, and looking closely at the pics on that site the others, incl. Brit. Maj. and Royal Hussars also had the 17th/21st as a capbadge.

    I had the APC and the Scorpion. I was the Action Man king of our village.

    the horse could have been from the lone ranger range. I had those before action man
     
  12. My horse was black with a white star on his fizzog.
     
  13. You are sluggie's sockpuppet
     
  14. The Action Man Scorpion is actually in some demand by those guys who build the dioramas for the very detailed and very expensive Japanese 1/6 figures.

    It might be a purely toy quality moulding, with a few glaring errors, but apparently size/scale wise it's spot on.
