Proud works on a dusty shelf

Posted by Susofrick on 14 Mar 2023, 10:43

... or dusty works on a proud shelf. Whatever. Yesterday the missus came up with bright idea that we should clean up the walk-in-closet. Walk-in-closet??? was my first thought, that's the HOBBY-room. With guitar-amps, books galore and toy soldiers. Anyhow, I didn't say that. It was very much overdue. So up the ladder I went. 3 meters up I found some stuff that I had forgot hat it existed. Some I remembered, but some I ad totally forgot. So I took some pics.

It's very interesting to see those old works recovered, Susofrick. I love all of them. :thumbup:

In the penultimate picture, is it possible that a small sheepdog is able to keep the big bear away from the flock of sheep? Wow, the shepherd must be thrilled with it! :mrgreen:

Nice little collection there Susofrick. I remember the lone dragoon which I like very much with its melancholy atmosphere. Your house must be fairly new as more than a couple weeks in my house and anything left out is covered in dust (house is older than me! 60+) as everything looks pretty good for years in storage.

Yup! My first. Then the missus saw it and well ... nah, it's plaster, painted and with talcum powder. My version of the Fetterman fight. Couldn't find any Sioux/Cheyenne in Winter clothes so I had to do withoout them.

In the penultimate picture, is it possible that a small sheepdog is able to keep the big bear away from the flock of sheep? Wow, the shepherd must be thrilled with it!


I was a filmclip I saw on facebook or youtube, So it is based on a real story.

House was built in 1906 or 1910. The sources differ a little. Was a barracks building and you can still see where the soldiers ran down the stone stairs When something odd happens we blame the old Major that's still there. :-D But it was made into apartements 1991 and we moved in 2001. And I have had other stuff on those shelfs before. and the dios had been in other places too.

I like the knight charging the German armoured car!


Thanks. My idea was that he is a ghost. Or was that they happened to travel through a time travel portal??? Something like that. Jst like the commandos and the ghost. Think I wanted them in the same forest.

Lots of memories there..


Yes. And some, like the Zulu-brits, I didn't remember at all. :oops: :-D

You must have been euphoric when you came across these gems from yesteryear Susofrick. I certainly would have been.

Ps/ Also loved the cookie based Custar(d’)s last Stand, (sorry, couldn’t resist)!

Fun to see them all Gunnar, a shame the missus didn't had the idea a few years ago, then I could see it for real.
It's always fun to look back at your old work, and remembering how much fun you had making it.
Thanks for sharing!
