The Company

   

Gone for years, Boyd Models was a US reseller of model kits and accessory items. Among other things, they imported structure kits, vehicles, tanks and planes from European manufacturers such as Vollmer, Preiser and others.

The Figures

Boyd rebranded the four N Scale horse-drawn wagons made by Roskopf and sold them in blister packs—evidently it was pot luck regarding the color of the horses. Note that Preiser used to rebrand these same sets as well. And speaking of Preiser, Boyd also sold twelve of their figure sets. Photos are mine.

Here's a variation on the packaging, courtesy of Markus Schiavo (N Scale vehicles).
