GW 007 FRENCH INFANTRY OFFICIER

GW 007 FRENCH INFANTRY OFFICIER

Painted toy soldier 1/30th scale.

Modeled by Emilio Arredondo for KRONPRINZ TOY SOLDIERS catalogue.

Cast, painted and packaged in our own workshop.

Packaged in full color printed boxes with great foam protection.

Toy soldier scale 1/30 which depicts a French infantry officer in 1917-18.

Based on the image of Kirk Douglas in Kubrick's film "Paths of Glory," this officer wears the Bleu Horizon uniform that replaced the traditional French uniform composed of dark blue warrior and red panties.

While the British army decided that the camouflage was to assimilate the soldier with the terrain, the trench warfare made the French high command think that the color against which their soldiers were to stand out was the leaden blue of the North of France sky.
