1/35 polish soldiers 1920
Posted by Tankluver on Sunday, December 13, 2020 12:01 PM

I'm looking for some polish tank crew figures and infantrymen from around the 1920s, would the mini art polish tank crew set work for this timeline or no?

Hello!

Well I'm honoured GM mentioned my name! Now I don't know the set you mentioned, but I remember hearing, that the most tanks (and tankers!) in 1920 were from the so called "Haller's blue army" - a unit that General Haller brought with him from France completely equipped by the French. That would mean that you should go for modifying late WWI French tankers and this should do it - unluckily, that would be about it when it comes to my knowledge of that aspect of Polish history.

A little info on what you plan to do would help me reserach it a little better for you.

Good luck with your modelling projects and have a nice day

Paweł

Here’s a couple 1920’s Polish tank crewmen found on eBay.

Thank you for jogging my memory. There are a lot of good photos of armor from the Polish Ukrainian War of 1919.

Sorry for the late reply gents, ive been over on the new armorama page primarily. I'm planning on building an Austin armored car that the polish captured, i bought two figures off ebay, the figures that were recommended in two posts up earlier. Thank you for the information though it gives me a start on where to get other figures as these two seem to be great for doing a standing near the car!
