Woman removing solder’s boot. Soldier sits in a chair with his leg extended. Woman stands astride the soldier’s leg, facing away while attempting to remove his boot. Soldier has this other foot on the woman for leverage as they try to get the boot off.
I saw the ensemble many years ago in New York City but have been unable to locate since. 54mm if I remember correctly. Anyone know who produced it?31/01/2023 at 07:00 #182825
I know the one you mean- you will find it in ads for figures in any 70s-80s Military Modelling, or Battle magazine; but I have a suspicion it may have been a French designer- I also subscribed to Uniforms so could be anywhere. The latter on my bookshelf, others are stored, but I’ll do a quick skim tomorrow…

I ordered a Military Modelling back issue from 1971 and 1975 on Ebay. Maybe I’ll get lucky and find the ad. If not I’ll try 1980. …unless you stumble on the ad. Thanks for your help!01/02/2023 at 10:05 #182884

Wow that could be a bit of a phantom target; checked a few ‘Uniformes’- nothing so far…03/02/2023 at 08:38 #182961
hi Marc, update at last.
no I’m pretty sure they were specialised cast metal figurines.
I’ve scanned several of my ‘album’ sorted collection of Uniformes, from its predecessor #2 issue (1971) to the end 1987. Of the 30-40 that I looked thru cover to cover I saw a lot of things, but not this one.
So I’m pretty confident it was not made by any of the boutique French/ Parisien artisans otherwise I’d have found an advert, news item or ‘review’ by the mags authors. Guess that leaves it in the Brit magazines arena- of which I have many however they are stored in loft and not easily accessible (or light!).
best of luck with your hunt, treasure or otherwise!

It was definitely cast metal. Most likely 1977 – 1982. What Brit magazine would you suggest? And thanks so much for your efforts! -Marc
I’ll let you know if I find it.03/02/2023 at 15:46 #182976Not Connard SageParticipant
If you have a lot of time on your hands, you can explore the Lost Minis Wiki.
Phoenix Follies were larger than 54mm, probably 70mm?

any 70s-80s Military Modelling, or
Those are what I subscribed too/ bought locally (imported obviously) and continued to 1988s-ish as well as bought the odd back collection to fill gaps. Have about 8 A4 Ream boxes filled with them… from 1973- 88 roughly. In there somewhere…
