Another rescue from the 50 Cent box

Strombecker Washington at Yorktown set. I now have the full crew (w/o the gunner's tools).  I don't have the cannon yet either so that's a MARX 1776 gun in it's place . The figures are on a BMC gun emplacement modified to fit bigger cannons.







General George Washington fired the 1st siege gun at Yorktown in 1781 as shown by various artists.

Rescued from the $1.00 and 50 Cent boxes....

Strombecker WW I Germans I repainted as Franco-Prussian War figures.





Two odd lead Zouaves I repainted as the 3rd Zouaves, Crimean War era







I didn't have a spare rifle with the sword bayonet but there are images of Zouaves with this style bayonet.
