WIP Congo Crisis 1961. Swedish UN Soldier, 54 mm original

    Hi all

    I usualy do napoleonics and 1800-century figures but from time to time I do more modern ones. This is my latest WIP.

    The Swedish support to the UN intervention in Congo during the 60's always fascinated me and of course I have to do a trooper. The uniform worn by the Swedes was a mix of different origin, trousers and skirt was an Indian model but webbing a swedish M/59 and the helmet worn was a US M1. UN troops was only lightly armed so the Swedish Kpist M45 with a special designed baoynet attachment was common.

    The figure is sculped using Magic sculp, the head and hands are from Hornet. The helmet is a Tamiya item and the Kpist is from DML. There's still a lot to do but here you go.

    Thanks guys, I'm glad you like it.

    Finished the sculpting yesterday. So now it's time to bring out the brushes to start the painting before I add the MP and a sling and finish the hand.

    Best regards
