Flat tin soldiers - 19th century (in memory of Paolo)

Paolo, my father-in-law, was a great collector of antique weapons, mainly guns and rifles. Between a 17th centur Italian chiseled-steel snaphance belt pistol and a 19th century French infantry musket, he indulged in some flat tin toy figures. Here below I show some of the boxes I am proud of having inherited.




Napoleonic French cuirassiers

Painted almost an year ago. A classic. Not one of my best work. Yet, Napoleonic cavalry always rock!
