Tim Mee brand "Backwoods Battle" Frontiersmen
The Tim Mee frontiersmen were made during the 1950s, when frontiersmen such as Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone were popular. The raccoon cap - almost every kid had one - were as popular as cowboy hats. Movies and serials about the Alamo and Crockett brought the historical frontiersmen to the forefront. It is no irony that the hunting clothes of the Revolutionary Era were pretty much the same cut as those of the buckskin clad frontiersman seen on television.
There is the added charm of Tim Mee’s Frontiersmen. They are in animated poses, good sculpting and enough detail to be worth painting. The set has six men on foot and three for horseback. Unfortunately, the current owners of Tim Mee do not have horse molds, so the mounts will have to be bought elsewhere. Nevertheless, this is an exciting set of figures. And perhaps it is no coincidence that several of the poses are similar to those of the early set of Cowboys and Indians.
