Zinnfiguren...

Whilst cleaning the garage out with the family today I came across a figure of an 18th Century cavalryman- it was a flat. I must of got him years ago. This was most fortuitous as I have become increasingly interested in the World of Flats or Zinnfiguren. I recently ordered a document about coats of arms from a manufacturer of Flats. They kindly sent a cd rom of their figures. I fear I could get hooked. Steady , I say to myself, try the figure you have first! Do any of you gentlemen know much about this exciting and arcane world opening before me?

  1. try www.flats-zinnfiguren.com for links and the British Flat Figure Society; also look for toy soldier shows in your area; Michigan Toy Soldier carries flats but eBay and German eBay are the best for more inexpensive flats

    good hunting,
