    Hin Olav,
    great Idea! There is just a new German movie at the Cinema which shows the story of this event, when the German and Britisch soldier celebrated Christmas together in 1914.

    I'm looking formward to see more! It is a great representation of our united Europe, which is so important for us all.

    Best regards from Germany

    Hi Olav,

    I love to see suche scenes and not only fighting men. I didn't know that the movie is a cooperation of France, Belgium, Britain and Germany, great I love it!

    Next year for the first time we will have the Belgian Figurine Club, together with our friends from the French Club od Montrouge and our Italien friends of the Figurine Club of Rome as guests in our Ingolstadt show.

    The figurine hobby can do so much to bring people of different nations, languages, races, religion and ethnic groups peacfully together. Thas the best of all.

    Merry Christmas and a peaceful new year.

    Hey all,

    If I'm not mistaken, Canada recently lost one of its few remaining Great War vets, 107 year old Francis (Clare) Laking, who was present and took part in the "Christmas Truce" depicted in Per Olav's vignette.

    An imaginative and very timely idea Per Olav, can't wait to see this one done.

    Cheers,

    Hello, and a happy new year!

    My Christmas project is finished, at least the sculping. The base is kept simple and I will add snow to the ground. The helmet on the pole is one of the the goal pole. Now its back to my major WW1 project, so the painting on this vignette will not be done until later. I'm still a novice regarding sculping figures so any constructive comments are welcome.

    All the best
    Per Olav

    Hossa Per Olaf,

    looks great....a very nice idea and very very different...can`t believe, that I missed this threat until today...

    I love such ideas that show us some different views of an historical disaster and the people who had to "live" in such a situation - I think the WWI has been such a disaster and I think no one was happy to live in the dirt...but to play soccer in a quite moment like "Christmas" must be worth a lot for such poor soldiers/fathers/sons/brothers and so on...

    Great work Per Olaf !!! (y) (y)

    Just one thought about the sculpting: I think the shoulders of the German Guy are a little bit to broad when I look at his hips. And I also think I would have added some more folds at the belower overcoat. But that is just one of my thought...

    I´m looking forward to see your next steps.

    Cheers,
    Markus
