German Officers Liege





I picked up these chaps the other day. They are old and quite nice.  They are Strombecker 1/32 scale figures made of zinc. I had thought they were hollow - but it turns out that they not.  

My protestations that I'm not collecting a 1/32 scale army don't seem to be up to much. 

Quick blast of white spray and a lick of gloss paint should do nicely.

  1. Interesting figures, never heard of that firm before, should look nice painted, Tony

  2. Excellent - I think they are rather better than quite nice - lovely stuff!

  7. About 1968, I bought a set of George Washington and a Continental Artillery piece and crew. I still have them today. They came in the same style of box. Nice find, sir!

    1. The boxes are rather good aren't they?

  8. Agree with Steve. That company was better known for their race car sets in 1/32nd scale. There were only 4-5 sets out, made of zinc and esch set was meant to be a small vingette. IIRC, they were under $5.00USD per set at the time. Pitty nobody has brought them back.
