WW II German Sturmgeschütz III Wooden Toy.

Article about: I've had this for probably thirty years. My grandfather gave it to my dad and my father gave it to me. My grandfather brought this back from Germany at the end of WWII. I never knew anything

    Hey Steve. I believe Ralph is done with that and I think he needs to paint it now. I was slow in getting him some measurements for another piece that he is making. Ralph has been a huge help and I can't believe that he is taking the time out to do this for me. Thanks to him I saw this other one over on WAF.

    Its a beautiful piece and its very interesting to learn that that toys were still being manufactured after the declaration of total war- I would have imagined all the toy companies would have gone over to making war material by the late date given.

    My guess is that as an international manufacturer of children's products, the company is very sensitive to how they are--might be--perceived on matters dealing with the sort of toys they produced during WWII. We all know that anything Nazi is by definition "evil" and to be shunned and reviled, and for many firms any connection with anything even remotely connected to the years 1933-45 is to be avoided and not discussed. Silly, but that's reality today.
    Well, Hugo Boss, Addidas, Pelikan, BASF, Bayer, Rheinmetall etc seem to have reinvented themselves quite well not to mention VW, Posche and the others


    HABA products seem to be a little less sophisticated these days;

    The manufacturers stamp reads: Fabrik fur feinpolierte Holzwaren-Technische Holzwaren fur die Industrie...Manufacturer of fine-polished wooden goods/ Technical goods for Industry....Not a toy, which would likely be labeled "Spielwaren" instead...

    The shield is made, the spar is made, if Luke sends me some more dimensions, I will make some mud flaps for him as well. I would like to do all of the manufacturing before I start painting. That way, I can paint it all at once.
