Blake, those are very cool! The figures remind me of the play; My Fair Lady.
Thanks! They would certainly work!
They're from my "Berlin 1910/Kaiser's Army" collection. The figures are from various makers, some going back to the 60s, and some of which are still being made today. Most are Phoenix Model Developments and Sanderson.
I have a collection of Imperial German soldiers on parade, with Kaiser Willy taking the salute. And a couple years ago, I realized that I didn't have any spectators to watch the parade. So I started picking up civilian castings. Old veterans with their wives, pretty young ladies admiring the officers in their colorful uniforms, little kids running about. I've even got some parents with sons who are in the cadet schools.
Unfortunately, I don't have enough display space to have everything out all the time. I only get to set up the display at Christmas, under the tree.
I'll have to post more pictures.
