    AeroArt St. Petersburg: Toy Soldiers

    I started collecting these things a few years back, when I chanced on a toy soldier shop during a brief visit to New Orleans. They're expensive as hell, but when you look at the detail work and consider that they're hand painted, it makes the hit on the pocket book seem a bit more reasonable. The Russian toymasters at AeroArt have taken the Sideshow-style painted figurine to a new and tiny extreme. I know we have a lot of modelers, toy designers, and miniature enthusiasts floating around here at CA, and a forums search didn't return anything, so I thought I lay down this post for future reference.

    Wow, thanks for the link.

    Mab's work is as impressive as anything in the St. Petersburg collection. Its cool to see the before and after shots too. My hat's off to anyone who works at 54 mm and can go all nuts with the detail work like that.
