Monthly meeting report of Nuremberger Zinnfigurenfreunde






















Our meeting at the VFZ in Nuremberg yesterday was, seen by the exposed displays, an announcement of spring, as seen on the image above: the "Maitanz" in flats (Heinrichsen figures) showing a Bavarian Volksfest scene.

But also the other collectors brought again some stunning works. First of all, my colleague Arthur Schneider, who is really my most adored painter (and meanwhile my teacher concerning painting figures and bases) showed us this 120mm Hussar:





























Have a look to the base, which is really a masterpiece - and so simple in technique.

Then we could welcome, finally, our member Mike, his marvelous blog is well.known: http://dreispitz.blogspot.de. He brought some 28mm Austrian Musketeers and Grenadiers from his own range:





























And, at least and the highlight of every meeting, Mr. Fechtner showing some flat figures out of his huge collection:



And, that was really touching for me, he made a gift to my daughter and gave her some wonderful flat figures with rabbits. As seen on this picture, my daughter was catching them too fast for the photographer, so she is only seen half on the foto - but I appreciated this gesture so highly:
