Strange things in model land.....

and yes, it looks like the washing machine that I have at home, pity that it doesn't have a clear recessed hatch to the door...

 

would probably look better with a cyberman directing it than a panzer grenadier.....

Well, I remember a appliance salesman that said about a German washing machine, Bauknecht, if I recall correctly - "It`s built like a tank"...

In the early to mid-1990s, river tug boats from former Warsaw Pact countries could finally enter both Austria and Germany, moving various barges to and from East and West on the Danube. The crews would comb the garbage disposal dumps for equipment, and stand outside of recycling parks asking for any electrical appliances being brought there. ("Television? Television?") Many decks of the barges returning down-river were littered with washing machines, dryers, (well-)used cars, etc. Quite a sight. One of my workers (a Rumanian) told me they collect everything: to repair and then use or sell back home. One has to remember that to most people new electrical appliances and automobiles were just not available, or even affordable, in the East for many years, and used, repaired equipment was better than none. And since they could not get replacements, repairing stuff became an art.

I have the 1/24 scale version of the pin ups (yet to build) but the 1/35 on the washing machine is a little entrancing......

There was a South Korean company that made models of WW2 Nose art in model form, that was pretty good too.
