Here you can see the whole host of characters that will be making their way to the funding platform next month. As well as the armoured car you will also get a cast of different characters inspired by the events of the uprising.
One of the neat things about exploring periods of history is picking out the characters that seem larger than life. That’s what Infamous JT has done with this particular project alongside the work of some fantastic sculptors, especially when you see the Kickstarter Exclusive Eugeniusz Lokajski here.
If you’d like to find out more about this fellow then you can check out what they bought together on him below…
“Conscripted into the Polish Army for the Polish Defensive War of 1939, Lokajski served as a platoon commander in the Polish 35th Infantry Regiment. After the Battle of Brześć he was taken as a prisoner of war by the Soviets, but managed to escape to Warsaw, which most probably saved him from the fate of other Polish officers, murdered by the Soviets in the Katyn Massacre.
In Warsaw, he reunited with his family and opened a photographic shop. At the same time, he served as a teacher in one of the underground universities operating secretly in Warsaw.
After his brother was killed he took over his duties in the AK.
He would sadly lose his life in the uprising. His sister published a book of over 1000 images taken by him during the war. We used many of these images for inspiration and created this model as a homage to Eugeniusz and other photographers of the AK.
We have modelled him with the Leica Standard, as it is known he used one prior to the war and was given one by a fellow officer in the AK. We have modelled a cat as an optional extra based on an iconic image of this Polish hero.”
Are you going to be taking a look at this campaign when it launches?
