There are few miniatures of recent politicians from Western Europe. We do know them of Churchill, De Gaulle. When it comes to politicians, however, it usually concerns people from a rather distant past.
This is different in Russia. There are quit a lot of different modelminiatures available that depicts recent or reasonably recent political leaders. Possibly this has to do with the fact that the modelminiatures hobby in Russia is very popular at the moment. Figure-makers search for a variety of subjects, and take their politicians of today or some time ago as a subject. But perhaps we look differently at our politicians in the east and west.
Anyway, we show a few figures that are for sale now in Russia.
Do you know who they are? You will find their names besides the pictures..
