Napier Hall on 21st December, was won by Stephen Dance with his "The German Army Camp", the boxed set of George Spenkuch German World War I figures shown here. Stephen's full description of the exhibit is as follows:
"GEORG SPENKUCH OF NÜRNBERG (“G.S”)
Display set No.1063 “Ein Biwak. Unserer Feldgrauen im Weltkrieg 1914/15” . Some of the figures wear the Pickelhaube but most have the soft field service cap or Mütze. Spenkuch was well known for semi flats like these, but also produced ranges of figures for model railways and pieces for parlour boardgames. Some GS moulds remain in use."
In third place (above centre) was Peter Jackson's "Russian Flats", a set of smallish-scale pristine figures comprising a mounted officer, band and infantrymen and were late nineteenth century Russian infantry flats by Heinrichsen. They were in their original box and original paint condition.
