    After many hours painting ammo, I cant decide if I like it :whistle::whistle:

    I'll need to go over it and do a few tidy ups and then a touch of Klear to tie it all together I think ... :cautious:

    Carl ... I thought about adding tracer rounds but ..... ;) And thanks :)

    Finished!

    I have decided to call this finished, it's mounted and a quick waft with the hair dryer got the ammo belts hanging properly [IMG]

    I don't like how the smock came out but you can't have everything [IMG]


    Many thanks for looking

    Grüß Di' Mark,

    Excellent work on this FJ bust. Love the face!

    My only critique is that I've never seen a FJ "bonesack" (jump smock) in LW Blue-gray...it should be in either olive-green or camo (splinter or marsh pattern).

    I would highly recommend Robert Kurtz's book "German Paratroops" which has color photos of original FJ uniforms and equipment.

    Drei mal Horrido!
