Charles XII – plastic soldiers

Zvezda_artillery 

Found this box, still wrapped in plastic. Little plastic soldiers (1/72) from manufacturer Zvezda (Russia), with horses, wagons and artillery pieces. I used to love these kits when I was a lad, had plenty of them in all kind of colours. When I grew up it was all Airfix stuff, now the scene has changed and the few places that still sell this stuff has a lot of sets from all over the world to offer.

I like the fact that this is Swedish soldiers, from the Charles XII era. Sweden invaded Russia back then so I can see why a Russian market can exist.
