Commander of Operation Arsenal died aged 22 in 1943
Scibor Miniatures has revealed its miniature tribute to Second World War Polish resistance activist Tadeusz Zawadzki.
Codenamed Zośka, Zawadzki was a former scoutmaster who commanded Operation Arsenal – the first major operation by the Gray Ranks underground movement – in Warsaw during March 1943, as well as serving as a second lieutenant in the Polish Home Army.
He died in August 1943 during the anti-Nazi effort Operation Belt, aged just 22. Polish resistance division Battalion Zośka was subsequently named in his honour.
Scibor’s model of Zawadzki is in 1:35 scale and made of resin. It comes unpainted and costs €7.52.
