Yes Philip, 1/35th and dusty. I moved them to my daughters play house since I am no longer in the fire department. Had them in my captains room. There is another 3 shelves under the american armor of figures, Russian, Jap and mics stuff.
Hi Victor, to bad I could not put them on ebay>haha They are in my safe and the house is surrounded by mines, wire, dogs and gun towers. Someday I'll ask how much they are worth. I have some other medals, forgot the stock for the luger, a 10 foot long flag that hanged over a balcany, a small flag. They golden one belongs to a retired guy form Washington state that was a carrer guy with the German Army. He left in 1939 after he retired from the army and came to america with his Jewish wife. He was an official Nazi by the lapel pin that is in the case. It works but was gold plated for his retirement.
Long story, trade secret and I knew the grand nephew. His mother was related to the colonel. On the case they wrote to the "Volks Marshall" which is the "peoples general". It was in the attic for years.
Here are some recent photos I took in Manila of German military reenactors from the Philippines . Yes the uniforms are erzats (as in farb) but what I really wanted to feature is the 1:1 scale scrathcbuilt all metal (save for the wooden stock) MG 42 with tripod and zilfenrohr sights "PROUDLY MADE IN THE PHILIPPINES!" ;D
This replica was made a couple of years ago so sorry if there is some rust and dust here and there. I repainted the rusty yellow panzerfaust on the side black.

Sgt. Perry Steiner on the Russian Front. Nice one Guys!
"Little John He has gone Out to see the world alone Staff and hat, Look at that, He's one happy cat. But his mommy cries a lot Now she has no Johnny got. "Fortune find, But you mind, Come back to your kind." Seven years, Joy and tears, John in many lands appears. Then he thought That he ought To go home and got - But now he's no Johnny small, No, he is now big John tall. Tall and tanned, Face and hand. Will they know this man? One, two, three Pass and see, Don't know who this man might be. Even Sis: "Who is this?" Knows not who he is. Then along comes mother dear, Barely sees his eyes so clear, Says: "My son, Welcome home, God bless you my son."
