Nuernberger Meisterzinn

Something completely different...

Here you can see some painted examples of classic tin figures. Some of them I have made myself when I was a child. And some others I have bought on a fleemarket. I like them and I thought about making some new ones, to bring back some childhood memories.

I hope you like them. Painted as SYW Prussian 1.Infantry Regiment

Thanks Markus. Childhood is the keyword. I was thinking about making some of them in the old moulds... But I think I have to finish my 1/72 projects. :-D

Nice figures! Have also dug up some from my childhood and shown here! Fun for adults! Well, us, at least.

After a long time a small update:

I have expanded this range with two guns and crew. These are Prussians from the 7YW. The officer in the background is not ready yet. He is the next one!

Also childhood-memories for me too. We are located just 50 Kilometers from Nuremberg. So every toy store in my area had these moulds and sets. But my parents thougt it wasn´t the best idea to give me liquid pewter in my hands. But nevertheless I had some moulds.

Great stuff!

Best regards

Jan, very interesting display.
That slopping musket pose is very pleasing to the eye. In fact great figures for an army on the march.

Like these 1/72 Austrians are above from the ITALERI Set 6037

White metal prices are sky high at present.
The cheapest way is to produce the hollow style toy soldiers like they did decades ago.
Of course all the moulds were made of steel. I wonder if anyone would be interested hobby-wise that is in trying out that method ? A show of hands please if you would like a box for the Santa Season? :-D BB
