Over the past few weeks, I have been keeping an eye on our local online trading site, looking for some bargains amongst the Matchbox Yesteryear car models. This was a source of inter war vehicles I first tapped a couple of years ago for the RCW project, and I thought it would be a good idea to see if I could get my hands on a few vehicles to go with the Pulp project from the same place. The following images are the results so far - five more vehicles are en route, and I think that may very well be sufficient!

After the Pulp Chinese force, I moved on to finishing off the few remaining Copplestone Bolsheviks in the lead pile, comprising a couple of officers and standard bearers plus six infantrymen from the Siberian Rifles and the Bolshevik infantry in greatcoats packs - wonderful figures all, although the two officers are particularly fine, in my opinion

Marching off the painting desk this evening is another unit for my Pulp Project, utilising some of the "spare" Tsuba Japanese figures for use as a 1930's Warlord Chinese contingent.
The uniform is "speculative" ie made up - the flag is real - it belongs to the Shanxi "Clique"- although I just chose it because the colour matched in well with the yellow collar and piping I chose for this unit.

The latest recruits to march off the painting desk are another group of Tovarishchi, including a couple more converted drugarica (female comrades according to Google :))
