New Playset Range: World War II ‘A Bridge Too Far’

With the coming of Fall, we traditionally introduce the year’s new playsets, and 2020 is no exception. First up is a World War II project which has been gestating for many moons: Operation Market Garden “A Bridge Too Far.” We have been unable to create this set before because of a shortage of proper bridges, low stocks on boats for the river crossing and a lack of British Paratroops. But we found a great girder bridge, laid in good stocks of boats and recently uncovered a full carton of the long-discontinued Airfix British Paratroops.
 
These playsets were a challenge to create, and a lot of fun to set up. Click through on the pictures and you’ll find the full playset descriptions, plus many close-up photos. This year we’ve also created videos of each playset photo shoot, with narration describing the contents.

New Playsets for 2017: World War II Battle of the Bulge Playset Range

Our 2017 Playset range includes new ‘Tri-Series’ versions of our popular ‘Battle of the Bulge’ playsets. Buy just one, or two, or combine all three to play out the conflict that resulted in the Allies successful push back against the German advance.
When Hitler’s last great push to the West erupted out of the Ardennes forest at Christmastime, 1944, the Nazi armored thrust was blunted at the small but strategically crucial crossroads town of Bastogne, where American troops, fighting with low ammunition, few medical supplies, no winter clothing or white camouflage suits, no air cover and very little artillery support, withstood relentless attacks by massive German tank and infantry units. When asked to surrender, the American commander replied with just one word: “NUTS!” In one of America’s proudest moments of military success, the beleaguered Yanks held out until Patton came to their relief.
