German Army Wehrmacht (Heer) parade ground figures from Elastolin

Elastolin is a trademark used by the German company O&M Hausser (O&M Haußer) for the toy soldiers and other types of figures it manufactured from composite material and later from plastic. The Hausser firm was founded in 1904 by Christian Hausser and his sons Otto and Max. The factory was situated in Ludwigsburg near Stuttgart. Elastolin composition figures were manufactured in 40mm (also known as 4-cm), 65mm (6.5-cm), 70mm (7-cm), and 105mm (10.5 cm) scales. Production of all figures (and all other toys) ended after the German economy was put on a "total war" footing in 1943. The Heer, all wearing correct the World War II German uniform, was represented by parade ground figures that included marching officers, marching infantry men, marching flag-carriers (the photoghraphed flag-carrier was actually produced by Lineol) and marching musicians. These original Elastolin solders mase in 30-s are from the Museu Militar do Porto collection.
