48th Scale German Officer

    Hola Guys!

    After Bill gave me a 1/48th scale mannequin the other day I decided to do something with it. What I am doing is using the leftover putty I have from my real projects on this little guy. It is the first time that I am trying something this small, so far I am enjoying it tremendously! Here are some pictures of the finished left leg. The back side is a little chumpy, but that can be easily fixed with an X-Acto blade.

    This looks very sharp so far.

    Dabbling with 1/48 too at the moment I know how tight it sometimes gets.

    Do you use any vision aids/magnification ? I have to.

    Anders, so far so good, looking forward to your next step.

    Hey Guys!

    Thanks, its just a fun project, but didnt realize how much fun it would be! I am not using any visual aids, I cant see thru a opti visor clearly enough to use when sculpting for long periods of time, I wish they would make a lens with out the little divider in the middle!

    Anders - Looking nice at the moment. There certainly is a market for 1/48 figures especially with Tamiya's recent foray into the scale.
