A very nice set and it does look great after the oven cleaner treatment!  Is your set "complete" and is it completed, the limber with mounted artillerymen appears in Bistulfi's version.  Although in overcoats was wondering an accurate paint color choice for cornflower blue?

Sorry Dear, Oven cleaner, can't you find it?  No I haven't had it, you must have used it all up last time you cleaned the Oven!   didn't you put it on the shopping list??  that was silly of you!!! :o

Thanks and yes Easy Off is a fantastic paint remover, particularly for oils and acrylics.  Works safely with plastics as well.

Some stunning Bavarians by Maier - engraved by Frank.


I purchased these on EBay painted - after a spot of Easy Off oven cleaner they are in their glory once more ready for another paint job.
