    The falling soldier: The most important picture of Spanish Civil War by Robert Capa
    I did this small figure with the challenge of showing the moment of the collapsing Spanish Milician and train to copy exactly as possible the Robert Capa B&W picture.
    I create the soldier with some plastic transformed spare parts. Then I sculpted with putty all the uniform details adding the arms, hands and ammunitions belts. The rifle slipping out the hand it’s supported by just two fingers and his standing on one foot.
    I painted all in B&W with acrylic.
    I’ll appreciate and welcome all yours comments

    The Falling Soldier 1936 is a photograph by Robert Capa appears to capture a Republican soldier at the very moment of death. The soldier is shown collapsing backward after being fatally shot in the head, with his rifle slipping out of his right hand. The pictured soldier is dressed in civilian clothing, but is wearing a leather cartridge belts

    As a photographer I knew the image immediately. Very well done rendering! Doing it in B&W is an homage to a great, and very brave, man.
    As a point of interest I have read in a very few places Robert Capa had posed his shot but, as much as I know about him and his brother Cornell, I doubt that.

    Great idea and wonderfully executed. I too instantly recognized the pose and subject.

    Very good representation of the photograph. You have really thought about how to replicate aspects in the image - I like that you have painted the shadow on the groundwork too as that is a big feature in the original.
    Well done
    Cheers

    Hi Dan it¨1/32 Thanks
    and also to Jaybo, Mat, Francesco, I appreciate the comments my thanks.
    To Arrybh, about the picture was an acction combact simulation but the men was really killed

    Upon publication of the photograph, there were allegations from the Falange, an extreme nationalist political group in Spain, that the photograph was staged by Capa request.
    Staging photos was a common occurrence during the Spanish Civil War because of limits imposed upon photojournalists' freedom of movement: unable to go to active fronts, or cordoned off when they were, photographers resorted to pictures of soldiers feigning combat.[6]Following its publication, the photograph was acclaimed as one of the greatest ever
