The next photos from Katzelsdorf - Charge on the Turkish camp at Vienna 1683

 I see from the numbers of clicks, that the subject is popular. So here more photos from the Austrian museum.

The Napoleonic fortress gun is available now

 Now you can find the first set from Peter in the shop.

I think it is very useful not only as a small vignette itself, but also for a complete fortress (like shown on the blog before), or in use as a coast guard gun.

World of Tinfigures at Katzelsdorf (Austria)

 In 2008, together with my friends John Cunningham, we made a trip through Austria. 

I have fond memories of this trip, with a sword-fight in the Roman museum Carnutum, good food, meeting friends in Austria and Hungary, visiting battlefields and museums.

We had the chance to visit the Zinnfigurenwelt Katzelsdorf, south of Vienna. When I was a child, I have seen a documentation of the siege of Vienna 1683. In this documentation I've seen many photos from the flatfigure diorama, which is now on display at Katzelsdorf. So, this stop was a must for me. 

See here some impressions from this visit
