    Hi

    I have just started new figure from Alpine Miniatures.
    I decide to little convert this next FJ figure ;) . I used Magic Sculpt and pieces: Hornet head and hands , Dragon helmet and smg, Aber PE parts-(liner, chinstraps) and some parts from spare box.

    Hope you like it

    Albeit WII is not my cup of tea, you have done a good job converting this figure, my compliments.

    Cheers

    Would it be possible to show the original figure from which this converted? Not my scale, I'm not familiar with Alpine figure kits and WW2 is not my historical period, but I am interested in the conversion you did. The face and pose remind me of a well-published photo of a German fallschirmjager on Crete. As I recall, he's an NCO shouting orders and rounding up British prisoners. Not sure but I think the photo was originally in the Nazi propaganda paper, "Signal". I just tried to do a web search and find the photo, but with no luck. Was the original figure a fallschirmjager or did you convert it? If you converted it, did you do so using the photo as your reference?

    All the best,
    Dan

    Marcin,

    I think the pose of the figure is good, but IMHO the folding of the clothing does not seem natural. Too much sharp edges for my taste. I believe that softening up the folds would make for a better figure. As I presume that the figure is already primed some areas are a bit rough too and need extra cleaning up. The roughness will disrupt the overall effect once painted. However, at this stage nothing that cannot be fixed.
    Keep us posted about your progression.

    Johan ;)
