This August I visited the Kulmbacher Tin figure fair. This is a tradition since nearly 30 years for me.
The interesting thing is, that you see there figures for all sizes, flats and round figures, collectors stuff and new ones. Beside this often interesting books etc.
I made photos of the (for me) most interesting figures on display.
Of course first the 1/72 stuff.
Schutztruppe in Deutsch Südwest, still one of my favourite subjects.
I already painted my own figures, but it is still not enough for a little diorama of the Herero war.
My idea is to create a Herero ambush on a German column with these figures
. Including a German counter-attack of course.
Next an Austrian truck from WW1 from Munich Kits. They have great figures for interesting subjects. But sadly everything in Resin. Several figures from my collection broke in the past. I wish they would also produce in metal...
They also have the famous "Germans to the front" from the Boxer rebellion
And some other figures from the same conflict
Staying with the Boxer rebellion, these 54mm figures made me speechless. My first action was to take Massimo and show him these, telling him "I want these in 1/72". Let's hope he has the passion to make them for me:-) The battle of Tientsin would be a colorful subject...
