German Gebirsjager

    Hello, everybody
    Here is my last figure: German jager.
    In Russia, they were known under another name: Edelweis, a flower grown in mountains. The Gebisjagers had this flower on their hats.
    Figure is made by Russian company TANK and sculpted by very talanted artist Andrei Bleskin. Scale 1/35, from resin. I had it from 1st Guards, a Toronto based company.
    I have painted it with Humbrol emanels.
    I am not a fan of WW II subjects, but when i opened a box and saw the figure i were so impressed by fine quality of sculpting and casting< so I could not resist. Could you?

    I would like to hear your comments and would be greatfull for any advises.

    Alex,that is one AWESOME FIGURE !!! Good job on the paintwork (y) (y) ;my only advice would be that perhaps you could extend the kit base around the figure to include the whole upper surface of the wooden base and maybe make it like a mountain range.Just my 2 cents worth.Other than that,WELL DONE ! Cheers.

    Very well done Alex. I would be tempted to paint it myself. The only area I would suggest you look at would be to increase your contrast in colors, hat, pants and jacket and this would bring out even more detail. Keep up the super work and post more as you go along.

    Hey Alex!

    Great figure, and like Guy I would not mind doing one my self! I agree with Guys comment on the contrast, contrast really aids in a figure, especially in 1/35th scale. Great job and keep it up!

    Whats the next project?
