This is my take on Mikey Wittmann in 1/35. It's almost done.

This figure shows the rank of SS-Hauptsturmführer (captain).
He was promoted to SS-Hauptsturmführer from
SS-Obersturmführer (first lieutenant) after the battle at
Villers-Bocage in Mid-June, 44.
I did this so that AFV modelers can correctly put this figure next to
the famous Tiger callsign "007" which he burrowed for the mission
and was killed in on Aug 8, 44.

Without further due, here are the pics:

Hi Taesung,

You´ve really done a great job on this. I´ve fidelled around with this guy myself. So I can estimate how difficult it really is to catch his strange and at the same time very typical face. I also like the folds on the jacket very much. My favourite of your work so far!

Best regards,

Robert

1/35 rendition of Wittmann in any scale that I've ever seen. Excellent job. What do you have planned as his "partner" in the box?

Guys
Thank you all for taking time to leave kind comments.

The second figure will be Bobby Woll as a tank commander.
He is wearing 44 Pea pattern pz suit.
Woll's face is so hard to capture... especially in 1/35.
I'm not sure if I pulled it off.

It's 2:30 am, and I just finished sculpting the duo.
They will dive into fresh silicone tomorrow.
Should be ready for June release.

What should I make next?

A sculptor with style...no wonder you're leading the pack in 1/35 resin (and I think 1/16 too).

Cheers
