F. Fischer - composition toy soldiers company from Thuringia

F. Fischer (F.F marking) company was established in the region of Thuringia(Germany) around 1938. The company produced a limited range of 7.5 cm Wehrmacht composition soldiers. The most remarkable featur of F.F figures sculpting is the figures pedestal terrain that is simulated by a sheaf of tall grass which occupies the void between the toy soldier's legs. Some photos of  F.F soldiers from my collection.

Lineol: A 2 cm Flak 30 and its crew

The Flak 30 (Flugzeugabwehrkanone 30) and improved Flak 38 were 20 mm anti-aircraft guns used by various German forces throughout World War II. It was not only the primary German light anti-aircraft gun, but by far the most numerously produced German artillery piece throughout the war. It was produced in a variety of models, notably the Flakvierling 38 which combined four Flak 38 autocannons onto a single carriage. This Flak 30 crew was produced by Lineol in 30s (Germany).
