    Hi guys
    Escape to freedom: the famous photo of Peter Leibing an iconic image of the Cold War era, was that I wanted to use to create this figure
    of Conrad Schumann: East German police, jumping a barbed wire fence during construction of the Berlin Wall in 1961.I liked the idea that the soldier would be almost in the air and took me some time that the foot stay glued balanced on the wire
    I builded the body adapting some 1: 32 multipose plastic spare parts. Then I sculpted with putty the arms, hands, all the uniform details, belts and I did, hand made, the wire fence, the helmet and Kaláshnikov
    I used the original black and white picture as background

    I painted all with acrylic

    I’ll appreciate and welcome all yours comments

    Nice work. One nitpick if you wanted to be 100 percent historically accurate. He was carrying a PPSH-41 and not an AK.
    Best Regards

    Jason, can you tell that from the photo or did you get the info from somewhere else?
    I'm not disputing it or anything like that, just curious. :)

    Thank you Martin, like I said I was just curious and I hope it didn't come across as if I doubted Jason's comment that wasn't the intention.

    Roger.
