A Pontoon Bridge with German Cavalry (Item MOD 1-1)

DESCRIPTION: Again we must say Germania is not known for handling newer items or reproductions.  But as historians are wont to do we sometimes just can’t resist buying an article once in awhile that simply ‘dazzles’ us. The miniature military figures produced by a company known as “King and County ‘produces the very finest of these figures. The detail and historical accuracy is nothing short of astounding! There is absolutely no comparison with the efforts by other companies who handle military models. The interesting thing about this company is that all their figures are limited!! -- once a few are sold of any model the item or grouping is discontinued. And ‘retired’. This pontoon group is a good example, it has been long retired. And so have the Wehrmacht cavalry figures that we offer with the bridge. This set would be unavailable from the company and we have only the one set. After it is sold another could not be found anywhere as far as we know. So, this is not only a beautiful action set but it is extremely rare and never again will be produced. There are active collectors advertising to buy any of the cavalry figures and are offering as much as $125.00 per figure but there have been no takers and we will sell this group as a set only. Please understand that after you invest in this wonderful grouping they will continue to go up in value. “Probably in leaps and bounds”. There are five mounted cavalry troopers each completely different from the others. They are crossing a pontoon bridge that would have been erected by the German army engineers. The bridge is in three sections with railngs and this can be seen in our pictures. Every soldiers uniform is different and their faces all are unique as well.  All weapons and equipment are accurate and the horses are vividly realistic. The bridge when assembled is 24 inches by 4 inches wide. The pontoons are seven inches long.  The figures on horse are about 3 ½ inches high and the horse measurements are about 4 inches long each. What we have here is one of the most popular models that King and Country ever made and now the absolutely most sought after of all of them. The price we offer to sell this group at is probably far lower than K &C collectors would pay, but model soldiers are not our primary business, and as we noted we are handling this only because it was too neat to pass up about 10 years ago when we purchased it. Besides this it is a thrill for us to have it on our site and we do this also because we value our customers and wanted to pass this great opportunity on to our Germania Germanophiles. This is an investment opportunity par excellance!

PRICE: SOLD

SS Fife and Drum Parade (Item MOD 1-2)

DESCRIPTION: Again we will say that we are not a site for the sale of non-period items. But now and then something shows up that we can’t resist such as some of the model soldiers and vehicles that are so good as to astound! Such are these pieces seen here. This is a set of miniature figures and a building that is so accurate and dramatic that it is a true art form on its own. What we have here is a scene of an SS Leibstandarte fife and drum corps led by a officer and a drum major marching past the recreated front arcade of the LAH -HQ at Berlin Lichterfelde. There are 17 figures in all to include 8 bandsmen, one drum major, a  standard bearer with Deutschland Erwache Standard, two rifle bearing Guardsmen, and an officer leading the group past a figure of Sepp Dietrch, Reinhard Heydrich and General Karl Wolf and of course we have Adolf Hitler who salutes the assemblage from the balcony of the building. All the figures are manufactured in hand painted metal and the detailing is “superb” (and maybe that word is an understatement!).  They are so unbelievably detailed that you can even read Adolf Hitler on their sleeve bands, believe it or not! This group is awesome! The figures stand about 2 ¾ inches high with the exception of the Standard Bearer with D.E. Standard; that figure is about 5 inches high. The building measures about 9 ½ inches wide and is 11 inches high (very heavy); all in all this is a very beautiful grouping and would augment any good WWII collection nicely. This is prodigiously dramatic in its presentation. We believe that the company who produced these figures has retired the SS HQ LAH building façade and we believe it is practically unattainable today. We will sell this set as a group only. So please do not ask to purchase any of the figures separately.  

PRICE: $1,200.00 for entire set. We have only one set !
