Lineol Model Toys Dirk Duscha “Diorama 1. Weltkrieg Schlachtfeld 1918” Diorama World War 1 Battlefield 1918 with CoA 

We have for you this one-of-a-kind model toy diorama of a World War I battlefield trench scene between the English and the Germans “Diorama 1. Weltkrieg Schlachtfeld 1918” by Dirk Duscha Model Toys of Germany using figures manufactured by Lineol/Lineol Model Toys of Brandenberg/Havel/Dresden, Germany. This diorama comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.  

This diorama has all of its pieces, the only thing we saw was that the tank was missing one of its side guns, the standing machine gun has been glued back together, and a couple of stick hand grenades/stielhandgranate are missing that must have unfortunately been lost over time before we adopted this diorama. The Certificate of Authenticity loosely translated says, “ Lineol Model Toys Dirk Duscha”, “Diorama World War 1 Battlefield 1918”, “The Diorama World War 1 Battlefield 1918 made in 2017 by “Lineol Atelier” for the 100 year anniversary of the end of World War I in 1918. The diorama shows the horror of trench warfare in 1918 in every detail. The British infantry, supported by an armored car, stormed a section of the German trench on the western front in 1918. All figures wear the typical gas mask to protect themselves from poisoning. Trench warfare is portrayed man against man with great severity. The soldiers of all nations fought valiantly for their respective fatherland.” 

All of these pieces are in great all original condition with no breaks, restorations, repairs, or touch-ups with the exception of the tank’s side gun and re-glued machine gun. These pieces show the usual patina, fading, dust, chips, scuffs, surface rust, scratches, missing accessories, and wear that is to be expected from age and display. This is approximately 21 ¾” L x 15 ¾” W.  We invite you to view the photos to further determine quality and condition.
