Gebirgsjager sniper

    Thanks for looking.
    I present my latest work a Gebirgsjager sniper.
    Main body is Evolution with cut and re-positioned arms . The head is a bare Hornet with a tired look, the cap is an early Hornet m43 re-carved to give it more life. Equipment is dragon and the rifle is ICM.
    As always any comments and advice are welcomed.

    As mentioned before, it's a truly outstandong conversion (as are all your creations).
    The only comment I could think of concerns the M43 cap. Even though it was also worn by the German Gebirgsjäger from 1943 on, a lot of the old hands held on to their "Bergmütze", which mostly differed in the markedly shorter brim, as seen in these 3 photos attached:

    General Julius Ringel and the first 2 Gebirgsjäger on the right are wearing Bergmützen, whereas the other 3 in the front row seem to be wearing M43 caps.

    And here is what they looked like in colour - Wehrmacht on the left and Waffen-SS on the right

    So, just an idea...

    Cheers

    Thanks for the pictures and the kind words, I've sanded the peak down and it looks much better.
    I've also started filling the arms in.

    After 1 or 26 false starts I've finally started putting paint on.

    That face is superb. I'm looking forward to this one. Autumn looking flecktarn and he'd look great. Or do you have something else in mind?
  12. razor Well-Known Member

    Big thanks to all.


    A nice idea but I'm basing my figure on this guy -
