One of Alpine's latest 120mm figures. I tried to make him look young, as the 12th SS Panzer Division was made up primarily of 16-18 year olds. Klaus Schuh was about 18 years old when he was KIA.

































Thanks for looking.

Richard,
You did an excellent job! Love the subtle differences in the mix of materials; buttons, ammo, uniform cloth, etc.

Thank you for sharing this beautifully painted miniature with us. The camo looks so real, and so does the ammo belt around his neck. You captured the youth of the soldier really well.

Was "Klaus Schuh" a real soldier or did you just name him like that and made up his fate?

Regards

That was a real soldier. Just google Klaus Schuh and you will see several very famous photos of him, one in that same (approximate) position.

Thanks for your answer. Should have thought about googling his name in the first place.
