Dutch Soldiers WWII.

Posted by Jaques on 08 Mar 2019, 00:08

Hi , friends.

Continuing the construction of forgotten troops. After the Greeks, Romanians, Slovaks, Dutch in the Indies and Senegalese, now, my last work under construction, are the Dutch infantry and marines in 1940.
The first figure and one of the "feline" tankettes built.
I hope you like the ideas.

The five Dutch tankettes were involved in fighting German paratroopers during the May 1940 invasion of the Netherlands.

Indeed! You are right. I never knew that. Thanks for this new knowledge!

Even in the Netherlands this seems not very well known.

Hi , friends.

This is the first Dutch "Black Devils" with machine gun Lewis.
The helmet is the same one I will use for normal infantry, but with the difference of the anchor emblem used by the Marines.
The upper body is from the Strelets, but I had to build the other part because the coats used by the marines were short (photos).
I have not found many about them on the internet. If a friend of the forum, especially the Dutch friends, had more information, I would be grateful.
Comments are welcome.
