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.

Hanoverian Landwehr ensign - Calenberg battalion flag - BFFFWP

I managed to finish the second figure for Benno's Figures Forum Famous Waterloo Project. I tried to make the flag myself, but scale is too small for such level of details. I gave up and fell back to a printed paper flag. The result is just ok.
