  • Ambush at Poteau - Ardennes figs

    These are very cool Dragon figs that FS told me to buy a year ago at a
    model show for $3, glad he made me do it.
    The guns are even complete with straps!
    Not sure what i will use them for, i was going to throw them on ebay but
    i really like how they turned out.

    Looks like they are sharing a hard fought pack of Lucky Strikes... They look great for sure... place them in a rear type area dio, or at a field HQ...

      I've always wanted to put them with a M20, like on the box cover.
      If you can't set a good example, be a glaring warning.

          I love the eyes on the Machine Gunner with the pistol (is that a 1919?)

            Thanks AB, FS, TJ, and DB.
            Yeah that pistol from what i've been told, was a short run production
            for the German army, i thought it was a colt 45, but its not and the
            name of it escapes me. So you might be right on the 1919, i'm just
            not sure??

                I think I have those same figs in 1/72. Great job!

                    It could also be a Browning HiPower. They were Belgian made and in common usage by the Germans.

                      Could be a Browning but I always got the impression that it was a liberated .45 M1911 right along with the Lucky's. That's the Bundesarchiv I remember seeing.....

                          I believe FS is right on the pistol, i know it was made in Belgian.
                          I was like RB thinking it was a colt 45, until i was told otherwise
                          by a guy at a model show who knew his stuff.

                            FreightShaker knows his **** fo sho: Browning HP was a later mod based on the 1911 design..Here's what wikipedia sez about mil:

                            Browning Hi-Power pistols were used during World War II by both Allied and Axis forces. After occupying Belgium in 1940, German forces took over the FN plant. German troops subsequently used the Hi-Power, having assigned it the designation Pistole 640(b) ("b" for belgisch, "Belgian"). Examples produced by FN in Belgium under German occupation bear German inspection and acceptance marks, or Waffenamts, such as WaA613. In German service, it was used mainly by Waffen-SS and Fallschirmjäger personnel.
