I´m sorry because I have no Tamiya kit to share here yet but, anyway, here you got:
This charm guy is going to be the proud owner of a lightened weight Schwimmwagen, under the new management of the 392nd Figther Sqn, (367th FG, 9th AF), France, summer, 1944.
The figure is a pilot included in an -once more- quite useful ICM set of pilots and mechanics. Now from the USAAF.
I replaced both arms, shaving them off from a (one piece) german mechanic. I replaced shoes as well.
About the head, the figure set include two different pilot heads but I decided to use another taken from a german figure with better face details.
Then, I deleted some of the wehrmacht schiffen details with the help of the modelling knife and files and used Tamiya epoxy putty to restore them as in the USAAF headgear. To complete him, I used Kneadatite putty to make the hair.
I hope you like it!
Great work on the figure conversion - the hair - that is the extra mile that makes this figure a standout.
