    Hi Jose ,
    Thanks for posting , Ken has captured the facial details very well , nice box art as well by Glen .

    In Glens other post he says he has used a Iron Cross from Dragon as it was not included , I presume this is because it looks like there is not one in the reference that Ken has used , there looks to be 2 holes where it would have been pinned through?

    hello
    he surely was holder of EK1 simply he wears german cross in gold which is an decoration to honour soldiers which did repetetive deeds of valor and already did wear the iron cross.one sees at the row of ribbons that he hold benath that other decorations which where worn often only as small ribbon
    normal you did get
    iron cross second class
    then first class
    then german cross in gold
    knights cross
    and so on
    benath this you have the many other decorations
    like close combat clasp.infantry sturmabzeichen ect ect
    thats what makes german figures so rewarding then nice medals.i am wondering from where the iron cross shown here does come from.because taken from an dragon action figure scaling 1:6 not 1:10 like the bust.but it seems in scale and not too big.
    cheers

    Hi there all,
    I am working on getting an Iron Cross to add to all the kits produced. It will add an extra little touch to the kit.

    Yes, Ken did not include it because he could not see it in the photo used as reference.

    Cheers, and thanks all.

    Thanks Pedro.

    Small variation, I think Glenn decided on the red to give it a different contrast to the green in the uniform.

    Thanks for the information, it is always helpful.

    Cheers,

    Jose

    Like an armoured modeller, Glenn knows that for sure... This fantastic piece of work deserved a true interpretation, this NCO has been researched and has a story...

    I fixed the piping! I don't know what I was thinking as I was looking at a Qsprey book in which the color plate showed red! Good catch!

    Hi Glenn!

    Great piece mate.
    Yes, the rush are your worst enemy.
    With 5 minutes you make Kalinwosky looks 100%, now is 99,9%:D

    Now 101%!!! I like him with dark green piping.

    Cheers and good models,
    Pedro.

    Excellent sculpting and painting.

    And my opinion about the medals: I never want to be killed or got wounded for this kind of crap.
    Who was the lunetic that invented this kind of decoration.
    War takes only life, it never give life.

    hello
    surely the inrodcution of medals or signs of bravery-already done in roman time-with the phalera on centurions armour or the hounorfull citation of units-was from beginn on an way to work with envy between single soldiers stirr the vain of the decorated ones or create an pressure to soldiers which had already no decorations won to risk more in combat situataions.
    well that is war.and decorations create an kind of pressure to each single soldier.you see the others wearing them,you have none and so you feel ashame or you are envy and in next combat sitiuation you try to win one too.of course this is not so dominant in the soldiers own view.but its surely an way to play with the basic insticts of man.which was from beginn an perfide tool of those people which start wars.
    well and if you thick in battle and have the luck to survive in some situataion those decorations did come alone.when you did survife three infantry assaults in an certain laps of days you did qualify for the infantry assault badge and so on.so one can see that only the lucky ones could win such an array of decorations.
    human are in some areas very easy to manipulate.and decorations are in many regards an primitive mature attribute.and surely vain in regards to women also played an virtual role in it
