...to buy....several! These are stunning! I especially love the pose with the commander raising his fist, ordering the tanks to move forward.

Once again you have knocked it out of the park!

Yo "T"
Very nice set of Panther crew figures; you really out did yourself with the poses and the cockiness of the figures! Sweet!
The 16th scale guy is very nice as well.

May the best of times be with you!

how anyone can make a resin figure in 1/35 scale look so damn convincing is just beyond me. I'm just speechless....and the painting is - incredible.

seriously, can you explain in a very basic way how you craft such things out of nothing?

Thanks again, guys.

These two 1/35 figures were done this way:
a. come up with pose ideas.
b. take pics of myself in similar pose and clothing.
c. simply mimic what's in the pics with putty.

The SS tankers are nothing less than breathtaking. Both of the poses are terrific: the TC with his arm raised and the other figure in an unusual but fascinating pose, hands folded, perhaps reflecting on what lies ahead. And the sculpting of the faces is just superb - I defy anyone to replace these with Hornet heads! I especially like the expression on the TC head with the sidecap. The paint job really brings out the delicacy and finesse of the sculpting, too.
You're creating the best WW II figures in 1/35, by far, in my opinion. Bravo!
