    Hello everyone

    Who am I? My name is Stefan and I'm from Switzerland. I've been around on this forum for a while, however not a very frequent poster. My principal area of interest is WW2 with a focus on allied subjects. Other subjetcts I'm interested in are the vikings and anything to do with Switzerland (unfortunately a neglected topic).

    Some time ago I asked Diego Fortes to sculpt a figure for me. And now the time has come to lift the vail and to present this figure to you. The relevant details are the following:

    Subject: Late WW2 US Soldier having a well deserved smoke
    Sculptor / Casting: Diego Fortes
    Scale: 1/24
    Material: Resin
    Number of parts: 8
    Special features: figure comes with two heads (1 with M1 helmet, 1 with "Jeep cap")
    Price: EUR 30 (+ postage which is EUR 3.50 for Europe and EUR 4.50 for the rest of the world)
    Availability: directly from me. You can contact me on csknuesli@hotmail.com
    Payment options: paypal or if you live in the EURO Zone or Switzerland, bank transfer (bank details upon request)

    I truly hope you like this figre. If it's possible to sell this figure in sufficient numbers, it is very likely it will be followed by others.

    Thank you Diego for adding the in progress pictures.

    If you are still undecided please consider that I only have a limited number of copies available...

    Looking forward to hearing / reading from you

    Very nice! 1/24th is an interesting size and allows for more detail.

    Thanks Carl and combatartist for the friendly comments.

    Below I attach the (war time) pics I got the inspriation for this figure from. The US GIs in and around the Jeep would actually serve as models for other releases I've in mind (if the actual release sells well), in particular the guy with the shoulder holster leaning against the Jeep.

    Thank you for your attention.
