Many of my pictures have been taken at museums and private collections and most have not been showcased on BLMA before. My intention is to post the occasional picture with as much information as I can regarding the type of model featured, scale, who made it etc. So to start off here's a picture of a lead mould popular in the war years. No doubt with the right selection of moulds - and a limitless supply of lead pipe - kids (and their fathers) could churn out whole battalions with which to play their own Little Wars.
