    I like your rendition of the Flakartillerie War Badge Nap, very neat. Field Blue mess kit looks good too - Vallejo Luftwaffe Uniform?

    Hi Guys

    Bit of an update ...started to begin with the flesh ...very early stages ( yes we're already done ) .....

    Painted the medals and ribbons .......kept looking at them ....just wasn't happy ...medals were over scaled in thickness so off it all came

    Resculpted ribbons with material creases and plain medals on which I will paint the details on them rather than use putty which looked too heavy in definition

    Que the iffyvision iPad pics

    IMO blonde would make him look more 'aryan', as he's already sporting a rather 'middle eastern' nose which dark hair would accentuate. Don't know how to put this politically correct. But anyway you won't be able to make him laugh!:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    Keep up the good work!
