    I had the Airfix soldiers. Shows how much I knew back then but I used to play with my American Civil War soldiers with my Matchbox Models of Yesteryear cars! I believe in reenactment circles that would be called farb.

    Has to be for me 'Steer 'n' Go' = this was a pre Sega Rally game where a car on a disc shaped roadway had a magnet under the disc that moved the car which was controlled by a car fascia with a steering wheel powered by batteries in the 'car radio' pane'l

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    I used to have a car thing called Trik Trak:



    My parents clearly didn't think this through - you have to nail track corners (only, as in the pic) to the floor then send a battery-powered car through the course you created! No way they would go for that!

    Steer n Go is awesome! I remember wanting one as a kid.

    I did have this instead though:



    Came with aluminium stickers which you pushed a pin through then stuck to the bottom of your matchbox cars.
