Austrian National Library now have digitalized also newspapers from the period between the wars.
Most interesting that I have found yet are two dioramas shown in Leipzig in 1930, Cortez meeting Montezuma and Nebukanessar in Babylon: http://anno.onb.ac.at/cgi-content/anno?aid=vfr&datum=19301206&seite=22&zoom=33&query=%22zinnfiguren%22&provider=P03&ref=anno-search

I found these two interesting German language articles when searching on the world Zinnfiguren in Austrian National Library's digitalized magazines:

Interesting that the author speaks of collecting already in 1918.
The second one is from right after WWII broke out in 1939
