King & Country VN170 The USMC M35A2 Cargo Truck. This long-awaited and much-requested model is, without doubt, the finest wheeled vehicle K&C has produced yet! Our United States Marine Corps M35A2 is typical of the Troop Carrying / Cargo Carriers employed all over South Vietnam during the war. Being a USMC vehicle it would have been stationed in 'I Corps' which comprised the northernmost region of South Vietnam bordering Communist North Vietnam at the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) which divided the two countries. Our K&C model has, of course, rolling wheels and comes with a detachable 'canvas' cover (actually resin) for the driver's compartment. The Marine Corps driver is also included with the vehicle and is dressed in his everyday 'utilities' and wearing his 'flak jacket'. Next to him, on the seat, is his camouflaged steel helmet and M16. In the rear of the vehicle the wooden seats are lowered to allow sitting 'Grunts' to be placed in or, if the collector wishes, some military supplies. Now, an 'empty' truck can look OK but when you add a few Marines onboard it really comes alive!
Established in 1983 King & Country is owned and operated by Andy Neilson and Laura Johnson based in Hong Kong King & Country collectible toy soldiers include a range of hand painted collectible metal toy soldiers military and civilian figures polystone vehicles and accessories. WE are one of the best-known and most-collected producers of toys soldiers and miniature figures in the world today. King & Country all-metal, hand-painted, 1:30 scale figures (about 60mm tall) cover the broadest spectrum of history - from Ancient to Modern and many points in between. K & C begin in Ancient Egypt before travelling on to the time of Christ and Imperial Rome... K & C's miniature history series include The Crusades before journeying westwards to Europe and The English Civil War and later to the colourful spectacle of The Age of Napoleon. Moving even further west across the Atlantic we depict the brave but doomed battle to defend The Alamo and the epic Indian Wars of the late 19th Century.
In more modern times King & Country helps tell the story of The First World War and the battles and campaigns in both the Middle East and the Western Front. Following the end of that War we also explore in miniature the people and personalities that led to the terrible rise of The Third Reich in our Berlin '38 series. That inevitably leads on to The Second World War itself...
No other toy soldier company has designed or produced as many or as varied a selection of WW2 military and civilian figures, fighting AE079nd accessories as King & Country!

As the real war raged across the globe K&C also reproduces the troops, tanks and many other items that replicates the battles and campaigns fought in Europe... The Pacific... North Africa and Russia. More recent decades' history can be seen in our relatively new Arab / Israeli conflict and Vietnam War series.
On a lighter note, K&C also produces several non-military 'civilian' ranges that attract both male and female collectors...
