    Both looking great Mark, for me the cap just shades it.
    You are amongst very few who can risk this level of magnification (y)

    Mark have checked by blowing both faces as big as I can get them and dont see any mistakes.
    Lovely job on a lovely bust.
    Think I prefer the chap with the fur hat/cap, but both offerings are very very good.
    Super

    I hope that someday I can get close to your level of, "mistakes" Great painting!
    This is another one of those that I would be torn as to what head version to use.

    Its by a new company called Grenadier Miniatures whom, although a new company, I believe to be under the wing of Stormtroopers. They do have a very nice website under Grenadier Miniatures.

    Just noticed Grenadier Miniatures this figure is in "reviews and open box" just a little further down the forum page.

    Hello Mark, I like the color contrast of the fur cap and coat. I still like the fur cap version the best, but I think the white helmet cover looks great, that you have painted on the other version as well. I like how figure company's give you another choice with different heads, either way you have a great looking spare to use on another figure. Regards, SG(y)

    Hi Mark,
    That is looking really nice, what a contrast between the two heads, it makes it look like two totally different figures. Is that the only bit of strap on the MP40 at the butt end? Or have you another to fit.
    cheers

    Great looking job Mark the fur hat IMO is the better looking by far, to my eyes the helmeted one just doesn't "go" can't say why just like the other a lot more
