Tank Corps uniform World War One

It would have been an omission for me not to include Tank Crew figures in the Tommy’s War range, and they are a subject that has been requested through the years, so I’m delighted to bring to you the following two subjects; TW32049 – Private, 8th Battalion Tank Corps, Amiens 1918TW32050 – Corporal, 8th Battalion, […]

The history of the Tank Corps in World War One

The role of the tank has become synonymous with the Great War and military technology since. Certainly the lessons learned at Flers-Courcelette in 1916, where the tank was introduced, were to improve equipment and tactics by 1918 and contribute to the breakthrough at Amiens which ultimately led to the Allied victory. It’s always been my […]

Reverend Theodore Hardy VC, DSO, MC 1863-1918

With the release of figure TW32048 I felt it would be interesting to write a small article based on the inspiration for that subject; Theodore Hardy. Hardy was born 20 October 1863 to George and Sarah Richards Hardy of Exeter. Hardy was educated at the Royal Commercial Travellers School, Pinner, Middlesex from 1872–1879, City of […]

World Model Expo 2020

Some good news to start the year. I’ve paid for my table at World Model Expo in Veldhoven, The Netherlands, for July 2020 and will be attending the show as a trader. I’ve been looking forward to attending the show for several years now as I’ve long had the ambition of attending a World Expo […]

Happy Christmas to you all

I’m pleased to confirm that all orders have been completed and shipped and that I’m now ready to put my feet up and spend time with my family over the Christmas holiday. So, I’ll be responding to emails (and in some cases catching-up) between Christmas and New Year but any orders received from this point […]

To 2020 and beyond

Throughout 2020 I’m planning on a number of releases for Tommy’s War and attending a number of shows, in the back of my mind I’m also planning for 2021 which is the ten year anniversary of Tommy’s War. I think it’s a good point to explain that in terms of figure releases Tommy’s War will […]

Scale Model World – Telford

After a week long holiday it’s been back to work and back to preparing for the final show I’ll be attending this year – the IPMS nationals in Telford. If you can come along then I’ll be in the same position as the last two years, in Hall 2 and behind the Revell stand. You […]

Tommy’s War update – October 2019

After another busy year I thought this would be a good time to give Tommy’s War customers as update for plans for the range into 2020 and beyond. With Scale Model Challenge (Veldhoven, The Netherlands) coming in just over a week, followed by Scale Model World (Telford) in November it’s a great time for me […]

Next up – Scale Model Challenge

Last weekend I had the pleasure of trading at Scale Scotland, a great show which takes place annually in Edinburgh. I had a great time and met many current customers and new ones too. For those not familiar with the show it’s held at the home of Scottish Rugby Union, Murrayfield, a spectacular stadium in […]
