    This is the excellent Life Miniatures German 6th Army - Stalingrad 1942 Bust.
    Painted primarily in acrylics with oils for the flesh. It was a beauty of a bust and one that I truly enjoyed painting. Any and all comments welcome.
    Thanks for looking-
    Scott

    Hi Scott, This is an excellent example of "Stalingrad feel" !!!
    I love the color of the scarf. How did you add the lens to the glasses???

    Scott,

    Hey, I got it right! Great bust, and I got some great pictures of it at Chicago.

    This is definitely my favorite interpretation of this bust, Scott. Can't say enough good about it. Nicely done indeed.

    Thanks Lee, the lenses were made from the plastic covering that come from Young Miniatures bust kits, I used a punch and die set to cut them and glued with crystal clear and some future clear.

    Awesome work Scott!

    Wish I could have seen it in person at the Chicago show.

    Sure wish I could see this soldat in person! What I can see is a beautiful rendering on an excellent sculpt. The colors appear spot on, and to top it off he has just the right touch of wear and tear. Well done Scott!
