EISERNES KREUZ: Is a new line of WWII character figures developed out of a full commitment to release accurate scale renditions of real combatants.
Thorough study of period footage, photographs and documents, such as the use of original uniforms and equipment are just the beginning of a complex process involving advanced modeling techniques including 3D and casting technology. The final results speak for themselves.

(The Eagle, 1940) These figures have been designed closely following a notorious photograph from the German war magazine "Signal" depicting a "Jagdflieger" (fighter pilot) officer while being rigged by his assistant "Unteroffizier" (NCO) with the Luftwaffe's one-man life boat issued for single fighter planes . A bagged "Sitzfallschirme" (seat parachute) can be noticed on the floor as the last piece of gear to be assembled onto the pilot just before jumping into his plane and take off. Interestingly - and arguably- the pilot has been sometimes identified as the great ace Helmut Wick, who was killed in action in November, 1940. Whatever the case, this set can be used effectively representing many archetypical period pilots.
