    René,

    In my opinion the helmetplate looks oké. The only thing missing now are the revits on the sides and back.

    Cheers, Eric

    I know Eric.

    still, at this scale a nice lion should be seen, with his sword.
    I will work on this figure an await some pe- design.
    It's worthwile, can make or break your figure, especially considering all the foreplay I have and wil have regarding this figure.

    in a minute I will go to a bookstore and see if there's more about Dutch soldiers.

    well , first and foremost I like collecting books.
    If there were such a book like; 'the Dutch soldier of may 1940' I would buy it immediately.

    If the pe-job and the mannlicher go well I want to do a serie of Dutch figures 1/16.
    For that matter I need different views of clothing, gear, bags and pouches.
    I know the KMA ( Dutch Military CO school) edited a lot of books and they will catch my attention when available.

    pics of the belt, bottle and even shoes.

    Rene,

    I love the expression of this guy. Looks to me a man in his thirties who doesn’t take the Grebbeline all that serious as a defence against German panzer….
