SOLD: A 20mm WWII Miniatures Collection

My collection was sold to a buyer in the San Franciso Bay Area in July 2013.

The collection was amassed over more than 30 years. It included over 2,300 built and painted AFVs, soft vehicles, towed guns, and personnel stands. There were over 1,000 AFVs alone. Germany, the Soviet Union, the USA, Britain, France (1940), and Italy were all represented.
