    Hi all
    I have had a Pegaso 90mm German infantry man 1939 in my grey army for a while now so I thought I’d try a conversion!
    I’m still new to sculpting but I’ll give anything ago.
    I started by filing down the tunic and bread bag then with Magic Sculpt I made the smock using thin peace's rolled flat , then I made the belt the buckle and re did the bread bag.
    I also made the scope and the turret mounts on the k98 using a 120mm stick grenade , then I made the bloody face vale witch drove me mad at the same time I added the pull cord on the smock out of Green stuff.
    I’ve seen some changes that I will make before starting the painting; I have some time till the base turns up anyhow.
    Thanks
    Sam Brayne
