Hi Jean-Luc

Well, I do not think the engine was running while refuelling but I think that many horses during WW2 ended up being Goulash soup!

I bought that set some years ago when we still had Mark and Franc .. IIRC it was between 20-30 D-Mark ... I had a good supply of money then, as I had a well paid internship (bought me lots of books then)

I can think of a lot of dio ideas with that sled .. do you know the CMK set with the two winterly dressed mechanics rolling fuel barrels (have those too) :-)

BTW I used the H&G shovel man in my dio, plus another Tarmac set with the two other "Schneeschipper" and the oil drum oven .. Tarmac have a lot of interesting stuff in their range, although some figures look a little strange

best wishes

Steffen
P.S. thanks for the copy and paste hint in the Duel thread ... should have thought of that myself .. stupid

I have that too, although i find the horse a bit static ...



Hi Steffen!

Did you also pay 20 for it? I can't believe I payed that much for it... I must be crazy! :-) But know I'm happy to have it in my stash!
The horse is a bit static but I think it's not a problem since it is supposed to stay calm while the refueling process. I can't imagine the horse moving. If it did, I think it would have ended up into a Goulash soup! :-)

Here is the review of a nice, albeit expensive, little aircraft diorama kit: Tarmac''s 1/48 scale Horse with Sledge. A very original way to bring an Eastern Front winter airfield scenery to life.
