Toys reflect the culture of the society and the era to which they belong.  This is especially true in military toys.

German toys of the 1930's reflected the politics of the era; rearmament, blitzkreig warfare, and the Nazi propaganda machine.

WWII German .88, Factory model?
This heavy and well detailed model of the German 88 if functioning, unmarked, and all steel. I do not know it's history but it is extremely well made and I wonder if it is a production model of some type. If you know anything about it, please email me! It is shown here with 7cm German toy soldiers for scale.

I recently acquired through the largess of a fellow collector, a Krupp postcard that shows in the background model's of an .88.

Civil War "The General" by Lionel


The Lionel Marine Corps set
The USMC set was produced in 1958-59 and included a Cannon Car made on the scale of a 16 inch Battleship gun! Six flatcars with USMC vehicles were available as well. A matching blue USMC Caboose or green rescue caboose followed.




Lionel 45 USMC missile car


The Lionel Navy set
The Lionel 224 Alcoa AB Navy diesel pair was destined to recieve little interest when it was produced in 1960 making it a tough pair to find in good condition today.  A wide variety of flatcars could be pulled by these deisels to include a helicopter, submarine, and missile.  A great part of the Lionel Space & Military series.
