Is anyone an avid collector of composite figurines from WWII? Elastolin, Lineol, others.
I have a 70mm. example of a sentry. I have seen it in the period catalog. Do not at the moment recall the item number.
Have read that war period paint jobs tended to be more brown than earlier. Some of the figures were painted as foreign (Ausländer) forces.
Not sure what I have here. The figure is painted in a definite brown uniform.
Any thoughts?

For comparison - a marching officer figure. Not as brown as the sentry but not as green as pre-war figures.
