For many years I was really into the hobby shop scene, spending many a Saturday boppin' around from one to the other, checkin' out the cool new stuff, and looking for the latest magazines. And so in lies the source for many of the Civil War figure sets we've been featuring here on Toys and Stuff. I have also picked up the odd book or two on the subject and have used the Web to fill in gaps to the collection but basically, the greater bulk of the collection is years old. Today's Accurate set No. 3202 Union Infantry (20 figures in 10 poses) is one of those picked up in a hobby shop who knows how long ago. I would pick up sets from various manufacturers just to see what the detail was like with each and also with an eye for perhaps painting them. However, my eyes have gotten to the point where painting them might not be possible any more. perhaps one day I'll give it a shot. In the meantime, Enjoy!
