    Ok guys, who is this guy then? Does it say on GOF?

    We were down to two names. It would be nice to know since Minuteman Models will be releasing it soon.

    Cheers,

    Jose,

    I personally think it would be too much to put a name to this fella without further research, even as a guesstimate, it would be embarrassing if it proved to be wrong.

    For a release title I'd suggest 'Oberfeldwebel, Grossdeutschland Feldkampfschule 1943' based on Thomas McGuirl and Remy Spezzano's book, but the Bundesarchiv caption is just 'Oberfeldwebel, central Russia 1943/1944'.

    Cheers,
    Jon.

    delayed at a missing reference!)

    Dear Mr. Sousa,

    Best regards...

    I may be a stupid American but what kind of answer is that?

    I guess this is the kind of answer you get from any government institution when you try to get their help on something.

    Makes no sense to me.

    Keep trying Pedro, I know you will get it. For your efforts you get a "free" copy of this guy when I put it into production.

    Cheers mates, let's hope for better results.
