    Thanks a lot, Nap,
    The one in the picture is 1/16 scale. I'm thinking 1/9 would be nice too.

    Nothing has decided yet.
    Since I'm just a sculptor, I'm always looking for manufacturers produce my works seriously.
    I don't know which works fits thier needs so I'm open to share my works to everyone. (exept confidential commissions, of course)

    That's a sharp looking piece Kaz. Let us know when it goes commercial, I'll snag one up in a heart beat!

    I love the natural wrinkles on the sleeves, trouser, etc. Another fine piece Kaz!

    Wow, very impressive Kaz. Even including carrier straps and buckles on the gun. Would love to have a copy of this.

    Would it not be possible to sell 3D prints?

    Thanks a lot Joe, Steve, Adrian.
    Thanks a lot Joe, Sure I will. :)
    Thanks a lot Steve, that's the point I want people to pay attention. I've been challenging 3d scanned figures and want to beat them:)

    Thanks a lot Adrian, that's the hardest part. I've been trying to print them out, but they are very fragile and small. I made many many mis-printed junks.:)

    Not decided 3D print parts or traditional resin cast yet. I made it can be done in either way.

    Thanks a lot, Scott!
    Thanks a lot, Mike! I googled Claus von Stauffenburg images and...haha yes, you're right. I didn't referred to him but he looks like him.

    As people have said before me…an absolute stunning piece of work! How anyone can sculpt in 3d using a computer is a mystery to me.
    However…..I do not wish to be the first dissenting voice and neither do I wish to disparage in any way the skill of the sculptor or the quality of the figure, it is ultimately yet another German and one that reminds me of the busts produced by Young Miniatures (even down to the stance with the machine gun over the right shoulder, the head turned slightly to the left and draped with ammunition belts) and others.
    I know WW2 Germans sell well and are extremely popular, but perhaps a different stance would be the cherry on the top of what is already an outstanding figure.
    While certainly a quality item, just not original enough for me. Sorry

    I'd say you pegged that issue prefectly, Kaz. What I'm trying to say is, the way you have this detailed there really isn't a need to "interpret where" the fine wrinkles should be in the highlighting process, you already have them sculpted in, and that is awesome. I am impressed with the "lived in for a week" look you achieved.

    Ruck On!

    IMHO if there is anything to improve on this sculpt it is the way the weapon is carried on the shoulder. Having carried the German Army version of the MG 42 for a while I can tell that the way to carry the weapon on the shoulder and grabbing just one arm of the bipod does not work very well when you are marching across country.
    Beside this I followed the link to artstation and don`t understand that so far no one seems interested to get these excellent sculpts into production. All would sell like hotcakes.
    Amazing work Kaz!(y)(y):cool:
    Would surely buy any of these if available.
    Best, Martin

    A more reliable way to carry that weapon on the march if you want more comfort and readiness for unexpected action:
