Historical Note:


The Collectors Showcase strives to become your source for military miniatures. Whether you are a military history buff or just enjoy fine scale models, The Collectors Showcase has what you need. Known for our action and highly detailed models, The Collectors Showcase has become an international source for fully painted miniature products. Started in 2004 our company has grown from offering 1/6th scale full figures to 60mm and 54mm all metal figures. In addition, we recently began delving into 28mm war-gaming figures. Our figure sets span genres such as Agincourt all the way to WWII. We especially enjoy creating colorful pieces derived from the Napoleonic and Civil War era. We emphasize unique aspects in our tank models as well. They incorporate both open turrets and thrown track options. Collectors are delighted to have pieces that lend themselves to a variety of different diorama set-ups. All of their prototyping ( sculpting ) is done in Austin Texas. They then ship off the pieces to their factory in China for manufacturing. The company has been in existence since 2004. They design everything using CAD or 3D technology that’s what allows for all of the great action and highly detailed models.

Composition facts: The 60mm (1:30 scale) soldiers are all metal. The larger types such as 120mm or 1/6th scale are made of polyresin ( a marbleized resin known for its detail and durability) with metal guns and helmets. The armor is all made of polyresin with metal guns/machine guns and figures.

    The 1/30 U-Boat sections with associated crew lets one feel what it was like on a U-Boat when it surfaced to dispatch a freighter or tanker with its deck gun or torpedoes. This is a scene from a tragedy in which the U-Boats inflicted death and suffering on thousands of merchant marine seaman and which ended with 784 of Germany's 863 U-Boats destroyed and 30,000 of their 40,000 crewman failing to return.
