Pvt. James Francis Ryan

Pvt. James Francis Ryan
Private First Class James Francis Ryan is an American paratrooper who served in Baker Company, 1st Battalion 506th P.I.R. of the 101st Airborne Division during the Normandy Invasion. He was the youngest brother of 4 in the Ryan family. Already his three older brothers have been reported killed in combat when it is decided, back in Washington, to somehow find Ryan and pull him out of action. In the movie “Saving Pvt. Ryan”, Captain John Miller (Tom Hanks) leads a squad of US Army Rangers deep behind the German lines to try to find Ryan. After several false starts they eventually meet him in a field outside the fictional town of Ramelle in Normandy just after he has destroyed a German halftrack with a bazooka. This is how we have portrayed him... helmet in one hand, bazooka in the other.

"Searching For Pvt. Ryan" Set #1

"Searching For Pvt. Ryan" Set #1
“SAVING PRIVATE RYAN” is a very special war drama film for many of us history movie buffs and especially so for myself and K&C. Back in 1997, through a Hollywood friend and fellow collector, I heard about a big new D.Day movie that was already being filmed in Britain and Ireland by none other than Steven Spielberg. At the time all we knew was that it featured American paratroopers and U.S. Rangers and was centered around Normandy and Omaha Beach. And so, K&C produced some of its very first American D.Day soldiers which began our entire D.Day range which continues to this day. Journey forward quite a few years to when we met Capt. Dale Dye U.S.M.C. ret’d., the military advisor on ‘Ryan’ and countless other great war movies and discussions about doing a special ‘tribute’ to a fantastic movie and the real ‘heroes of D.DAY’. This 4-figure set (the first of 2) features the perilous journey through the fields and bocage of German-occupied Normandy to try and find PFC James Ryan, 101st Airbor

Major Dick Winters

Major Dick Winters
Ever since reading Stephen Ambrose’s fine book “Band of Brothers” and seeing and enjoying the television series I have been a great admirer of the late Dick Winters ... a truly magnificent officer and leader of men.

After visiting the statue of Major Winters in Normandy I wanted K&C to produce a figure solely dedicated to him.

General Omar Bradley

General Omar Bradley
This is the third “Bradley” figure K&C has produced and, I believe, the best one yet! Standing, hands on hips, General Bradley is dressed as he was on the morning of June 6, 1944 at the time of the Invasion of Normandy. As commander of the US First Army he won the respect and admiration of his soldiers as well as the nickname ... “The GI’s General” He had a long and distinguished military career eventually becoming Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and General of the Army. He died in 1981.

Eisenhower wearing IKE - D-DAY IKE - General Dwight D. Eisenhower
Here, the General is seen wearing the short, battledress-dress style jacket (modelled on the original British one) that he had specially tailored for himself in London when he took up his European command in 1943. In this version his “IKE” jacket, as it came to be known, is tailored in the same chocolate brown material as the regular U.S. Army officers’ issue uniform of the period. When this colour of jacket was worn it was usually teamed with the “pink”( more beige khaki actually) trousers of the standard officers’ uniform. - See more at: http://www.kingandcountry.com/eisenhower-wearing-p-10149.html#sthash.5Fz7fWD9.dpuf

The Sarge

The Sarge
Hollywood, both the movies and television, have always loved WW2 and when it comes to portraying the American GI there has been no shortage of great actors ready to represent them on the big screen and the little one too...Among those portrayals there is usually the rough, tough and occasionally gruff sergeant who is firm but fair with the men under his command...Think of Sgt. Horvath in “Saving Pvt. Ryan” or Sgt. Chip Saunders in “COMBAT” and you get the idea. Here is our little tribute to the fictional “non-coms” as well as all the real ones! “Tommy Gun” resting on the hip and watching out for his men “The Sarge” is ready for combat!

Capt. Dale Dye.... Weapons Training

Capt. Dale Dye.... Weapons Training
As many of you war movie buffs know Capt. Dale Dye USMC ret’d has carved out a unique place for himself in the film world. He has worked both behind and in front of the cameras on such outstanding movies and TV series as “Platoon”...”Born on the Fourth of July”...”Band of Brothers”...”The Pacific” and, of course, “Saving Pvt. Ryan” to name but a handful. He’s also a good friend of myself and K&C and was one of our very special “Guests of Honour” at the last “Texas Toy Soldier Show”. Capt. Dye’s military contribution to making many of these fine films and series more accurate and realistic is considerable and widely praised. Here at K&C we wanted to say “thank you” for Dale’s work in our own small way and here it is... We based our figure on several photos taken during the production of “Saving Pvt. Ryan” where Capt. Dye was instructing the main actors and some of the principal extras on the correct use and safe handling of real weapons...Including in this case the M1 carbine. Capt. Dye

Colonel Robert F. Sink

Colonel Robert F. Sink
This figure also has a connection with Dale Dye...The actual Col. Sink was the Commanding Officer of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division which of course featured the men of “Easy company” from “Band of Brothers”. Capt. Dye, in addition to training all of the actors and extras for the Television series also played Col. Sink in the series. Our figure shows the ‘real’ Colonel Robert F. Sink in his jump suit delivering orders to his men prior to the D. Day Operation. A regular prewar U.S. Army officer he had a long and distinguished military career and rose to the rank of Lieutenant General before retiring in 1961. He died in 1965.

"Gang of Heroes"

"Gang of Heroes"
In every army, in every war there are always some individuals who are on the lookout for ways to enrich themselves by one way...or another. The U.S. Army was no exception! Some soldiers helped themselves to wine, women and song...Others looted valuable jewelry, paintings, ornaments, silverware – virtually anything they could lay their mitts on. A few had even bigger ambitions...they went after gold bullion! Four GI’s have an appointment with a bank manager somewhere behind German lines and intend to make a rather large withdrawal...
