Austro-Hungarian Navy

    After some time two new figures from a sculptor from Austria: Christian Hahn.
    He made a Quartermaster (NCO) and the famous Ritter von Trapp, an officer, who was decorated with the highest order of the Austro- Hungarian Empire, the Maria Theresien Knights Cross. The figures are 54mm
    Here are the pictures of the NCO:



    The stripes of the underskirt and at the collar were masked with small stripes of Tamiya tape and then airbrushed. The Name of his ship "Zenta" (a small cruiser) is handpainted at the rim of the cap.

    And here Ritter von Trapp:


    The challenge this time was the white again (compare the much dirtier figure of the Waffen-SS NCO in 1:16 scale.

    Very unusual subject matter. I don't suppose that they are commercially available.

    You are wrong, they can be bought at Wiener Modellbau Manufactur (Vienese modelling manufacture)

    The company is new and has also ships and vehicles but for aficionados of the unusualness.

    The Quartermaster can´t be seen on the shelf so far, because they are waiting for my pictures to be able to advertise this product.
