Post your DAK Toys

Hello,
My son and I collect WWI and WWII toys (period and modern). Here is a Large scale DAK motorcycle that was bought in the early 1990's at Toys R US. I still have the huge box and all of the packing material that goes with it.

Does anyone else collect toys?

Regards,
   Jody:)

Re: Post your DAK Toys

Hello,
The toy is not Dragon it is from Ultimate Soldier. The toy actually predates some of the DRagon toys. This thing is rather large and it is 1:6th scale. I bought it at the toy store Toys R US in the 90's.

It is rather rare and I have not seen many for sale. Here is a link to just the motorcycle for sale on E-bay for $140 (missing the box and the figure). http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ultimate-Soldie … 19cc24c27e

So you will want to keep an eye out for it. I was offered $250 for mine (I still have the box and stuff for it) 3 years ago. My son and I just can't let it go, it is really cool!

Regards,
   Jody:)

Hi Jody, great sidecar outfit.  I don't collect toys as such but I have a few, some corgi, dinky, airfix, Tamiya and some others.

Re: Post your DAK Toys

Hi Jody,
Good thread idea!
I've 'toyed' with buying a couple of the larger figures but never found the right one. I do make models, though, and have scratchbuilt/converted a few figures. I also have a 1/16 scale die-cast BMW combination (bought on ebay many years ago out of Malta, of all places) that I will scratchbuild some figures for.
In he meantime these are all I have, both finished and under construction...

Re: Post your DAK Toys

Hi folks, I just came across this old link..

Anyone out there remember the old Lone Star 'Harvey Series' and 'Modern Army' Afrikakorps figures and vehicles?  I remember these were a big hit in the 60's - love those realistic figure poses! To quote Barron, enjoy cool

Not forgetting the Australian opposition forces from the same manufacturer...

http://afrikakorps.forumcrea.com/img/avatars/afrikakorps/big/2587_dsc01998.jpg

Here are some later Afrikakorps figures (dated 1971) from manufacturer Britains (part of the Deetail Series - which also included vehicles).

I say a big hooray for toys which helped kids use their imagination...

Re: Post your DAK Toys

Neat - I especially like the sandbags smile Did you scratch-build those? I'm doing a 1/15 scale PzIII with crew at some point, when life permits - the sandbags are a great addition.
Cheers!

Re: Post your DAK Toys

Thank You All!

The sandbags are an aftermarket set from "Panzer Art". I got them off EBay. They were easier that scratchbuilding but I have done that as well.

Re: Post your DAK Toys

I can imagine! I'll have to make mine from plumber's putty - 'Kneed-It'. I make my canvas/cloth sheets from A&B putty. Love the stuff.
Look forward to seeing more models or anything related that anyone has?
Cheers,
Mark
