    My 1/9 Waffen SS Machine Gunner arrived in the mail this week from Miniatures PMC.

    Upon arrival; I decided to do a slight conversion to the jacket. I want to paint an Italian Winter Parker. I applied the Green Stuff 2 part epoxy for this rather simple conversion. This is the first attempt at any type of conversion; and it was rather easy, being the first.

    Good luck with this excellent figure Brent. I like the conversion, although small it is well thought out.

    The pattern looks well planned out. Shame about the slight sheen Brent.
