    While I am painting the German in Stalingrad I want to show you the bust that I sculpted before.
    It is based on a gouache by Olaf Jordan, one of the painters attached to front units by the germans during WWII.
    He made a series of wonderful portraits of soldiers in the Germany´s Cossack Division.
    This one was entitled "Chief Nikichor Nikitisch Simonjenko". He seemed to be a veteran NCO. Under the tunic of the Wehrmacht he wear a Gimnastiorka...

    Beautifully done! And I'm with Rob, fantastic 'stache! Will this be available commercially? I'm a big fan of the Cossacks, and this is a nice character. Would be fun to paint!

    Thank you, Rob and Jay.
    The moustache was a bit tricky. It broke several times and after MS I tried Green Stuff and, finally, made it with Brown Stuff.
    If this bust would be for production, the moustache had to be a separate piece!

    Thanks gents!
    I am glad that you like it.
    Unfortunately is not a commision I have made it just because I wanted, so is not going to be commercial.
    I want to do some more busts based on these portraits. Years ago Fort Duquesne released a bust of the Division´s commander (von Pannwitz) that was the first that I did.
