Very impressive, especially with those large mitres. You also seem to have some nice ersatz helmets.

Very well-done 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

Very nice collection Sergei,

The helmets look great, but all those soldiers, man, do you live in an old Russian mansion?
The house looks immense regarding the place you have as a collection room.
Excellent and very nice collection! :thumb up: :thumb up:

Oh no my friend. I do not live in an old Russian mansion. This I did a charity exhibition in our local museum for children, or rather, for everyone who wants to see a collection of toy soldiers. And yes, this is an old house dating back to the 19th century. During the First World War there was a hospital for wounded soldiers and people with disabilities. Now in this building is the local museum of local lore

Sergei1877 - they are 28mm conversions. They represent the 5th company of the 3rd battalion of German Marines in China 1914.

I recently bought Hessian infantry at a scale of 28 mm for the period of the US War of Independence. I want to try to do it. I’ll post a photo, if interested

Yes do. The toy soldiers are what actually go me into collecting military items.

Wow! Pickelhauben, raupenhelme, miters, beskozirka, military miniatures and castles! Mirrors my own interests, and much of my own collection. I wonder if we're related?

Very wise words Sergei. My roots are in Prussia, my great grandfather was born there.
He was in RIR213 and was in the fights opf the Tothenmule, Near Bikschote during the first fights in ww1.
His son, my grandfather, was sent to war in 1942.
Not a very nice thing...war is hell, Especially if you look how those guy's looked at it, or, didn't have the chance to look at it.
I researched my grandfather's roots, and my grandmother's roots too.
Well, my grandmother's roots are more probimatical... Search for NSB on the internet and you know why.
Her brother was somewhat older, and joined the NSB. I have photo's here, of her brother, in full WA ( weer afdeling) uniform, and pictures of my grandfather, In his wehrmacht uniform. Things are not so easy as some people think.
My grandfather deserted in 1944, and my grandmothers brother survived the war, but never spoke about it... he just lived his life, and kept still.
My grandmother however...when I was in Highschool, was visiting us, at my birthday. I had a thing to write about WW2. For my history section.
I knew she knew a lot, but didn't know how much. Showed here some books I had bought, told her some things I already found out, and spoke with het about Walter. Her first love. The son of the guy fighting in WW1.
She didn't let anything go. But seeing the picture of you know who, she said, yes, that's him. She never learned a thing.
Well, in fact she did, because she wasn't authorised to marry Walter. My grandmother missed 1 leg, due to childpolio.
So she wasn't Arian, according to AH. But you know, my grandmother was always a pure national-socialist. No matter how her love was stopped for Walter. She just never forgot Walter. Or her brother, Koos.

History is easy to look at for us, but know, 75 years ago, with no internet, or references things were very different.
My mother, a child of a german wehrmacht soldier passed away 2 years ago. But I know how she was hurt by that war. So-called real dutch people telling her, you cannot play with my kids. She had no youth, like you or I had. Even I had the experience, imagine being raised by a woman who didn/t have love when she grew up.

War is hell.

Massive Armies Sergei!! Your modelling and painting skills are obviously equal to your pickelhaube restorations. My congratulations to you. Coert, I watched an ex US Secretary of Defence on TV today, a man who had served both Republican and Democrat presidents. When asked what advice he would give to those who serve in his positions today and in future.....READ MORE HISTORY!! I always taught my students...if you want to understand today, know the past. War is human slaughter and misery on both sides....but it seems to be wired into us humans for some reason.
