    Hi guys :) !
    Had this done up a few months ago, but haven't had time to do anything else to it since then. Just thought I'd show you some pictures first. It's a scratch-built 54mm WW1 German jager armed with a Mauser T-18. He's having lunch and some quiet time with his pet cat. Unbeknown to him, a rat too is eying his lunch. The structure on top of the trench is an anti-personnel device to discourage trench raiders. Thanks for looking and cheers !
    Kenneth :p.

    Hi Kenneth. Great setting and I love it. Have you used some parts from other kids or have you everything sculpted?

    Hi Kenneth,

    That's a beautifully rendered scene. I love the small details, the relaxed pose of the figure and the groundwork. This will look awesome when its finished. I can't wait to see the final pics. Well done.:D:D:D

    Kenneth - You really know how to "set" a scene. The viewer's eyes are drawn right to the figure and the story of the vignette. Excellent stuff!

    All the best,

    VERY nice Peace!

    Good builded and painted!

    But of the helmet...:

    I think, your helmet has the wrong form.

    Greman helmets of Fist World War were a little bit greater and had a little different form from the Model, which was used in World War Two.

    Above the type of 1917:

    And following the type of 1940:

    Hi Kenneth,

    great sculpted figure, cool base and tons of details !!! I like it very much and I´m looking forward to see the whole scene painted.

    About the helmet: If I see it right you gave the helmet a cover. Not very popular in the german troops of this time period, but I remember that I have seen some covered helmets on some photos.

    Keep it up !!!

    Happy sculpting,
    Markus

    Looks really nice, nice and clean sculpting! only the anti-infatry-wire on the top of the vignette seems like it will fall down very soon. i would look more realistic if all 4 tree trunks would touch the ground. now they are hanging in the air like here:

    i hope this point helps you, overall this vignette is awesome!

    Hello Kenneth,

    I guess that I am one of those lucky ppl besides yourself to have seen this close up. This awesome diorama has to be painted up NOW!

    Hi Ulrich !
    Thanks; I'm glad you like it ! I did use some kit spares, but most of the scenery was created by myself. Cheers !
