    Hi you Masters!

    Here is another crewman to go with my scratch AB-611.
    (Here the AC commander: https://www.planetfigure.com/threads/wwii-italian-ac-commander-new-to-sculpting.235379/ )
    I like to start from "cheap and poor" plastic soldiers and try to make them ...nobler.
    This time I started from the crewman that comes together with the Zvezda M13/40.
    Actually, after dismembering and reassembly only the face remained.
    The posture is intentionally unbalanced because the fellow will be slightly leaning on the shoulder of his comrade (still to come).
    I know it's not the level of many of you masters but I do hope that it may be useful for those who need figures to go with armor models and depict a special situation.

    Greetings!

    Hi you all!
    A little step forward.
    Covered the plastic body with a slight layer of Greenstuff (it helps because it's sticky) and started to give a shape to the left trousers.
    I used some strips from .5 mm lead foil as a guide for the putty.
    Comments and hints very appreciated! ;)

    Hi Gents!

    Some steps forwards with this fellow(s).
    Almost nothing remained of the original plastic soldier, not even the head that I changed with an old verlinden.
    Some work still to do on both arms ...

    This is his comrade (a model victoria "autiere" with some changes)

    Thanks Nap,
    I'm eager to see it finished but unlucky the time I can spend modeling is really few. :(
