Hello fellow modellers!

I like to share a few pics on a 1/35 scale figure I finished a couple of months back. It´s from the Alpine range with some minor changes done to it. I replaced the 75mm shell that the stock figure is carrying with a MG-42. The head is exchanged with a new one from the Hornet range. I also sculpted a scarf and added the ammo-belt and hand grenades. Finally, a helmet from Nemrod came in handy. Painting and weathering are done with Vallejo acrylics.
The figure portray a SPW-driver from the SS-AufkAbt 11, during the battle of the Stettin-Altdamm bridgehead, March 1945.

Thanks for looking and take care,

/Johan

Hi Johan,

This one looks amazing. I am so jealous. I wish I could paint figures to this standard.
I can't believe you have given so much character to a 1/35 scale figure

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

btw: the face looks perfect- very charismatic!

Best regards,
Jiri
