Fort Apache Downsized Cabin

Marx's Fort Apache sets were fascinating. They underwent many changes in sizes, types, and colors of figures and accessories, and it's centerpiece tin-litho building kept changing and evolving as well. For years, the centerpiece was one of the large tin-litho cabins and then in 1956 Marx offered this smaller cabin. The cabin is nice but seems so inadequate as a fort's main structure. If one were to make a 'fantasy' playset, this would certainly look great as one of the smaller peripheral buildings. It wasn't until 1961 that Marx introduced a proper Fort Apache headquarters building, see the 29 Aug 2011 Toys & Stuff post. Enjoy!
