Pewter figures

Here is another in the fine line of cast pewter figures from North Star. This time the set is for Field Commanders and includes a pewter table top with maps. There are also four wooden posts to be used to make the table legs and supports. Though not specifically designed for aviation use, there is no reason why it could not be incorporated into a nice 1/48 diorama showing preflight planning. I'm sure that in the rather fluid Russian front that such last minute briefs were quite common.

As you can see from the images, the figures are very well detailed and should make an excellent addition to your next diorama. One of the figures is standing and smoking a pipe while the other is leaning on the table as if trying to make a point.  They make a very nice diorama in their own right.
