    Yep, well spotted. It does indeed seem come up with all sorts of indiscriminate stuff that often sounds very rude and makes me do a facepalm in dispair - because I can sometimes recognise a construct that was intended;)

    Wow I recognised this guy already on the small photo in front of the thread!

    I did not know Ringel, but Coincidentally just read a book about the battle for Crete which contained his picture.

    Your face sculpts are amazing!

    Makes me sorry that I sold off the bust of Dietl that I had. Great bust, might just have to order one (my b'day is coming up)

    Well I was also looking for the bust of Ringel, I contacted Mitches Military but was told that it´s no longer in production.

    So I was looking for the Eduard Dietl figure or bust but I only found a 1/35 scale figure from Verlinden Productions, item#1170 named German Mountain General WWII.
    I could buy it from a close friend who had a toy store in Belgium in the city Lier. It was the store from Francois Verlinden that he took over just before he left to the USA.

    Seems that there was also a 120mm figure of this German Mountain General who is actually Eduard Dietl.

    So I contacted the company Scale75 in Spain asking them if they could make a 1/10 scale Eduard Dietl head with cap, I was going to make the bust.
    Scale75 created the head and send me the original mold and 10 copies of the head with cap, ofcourse at a specific price, but I thought it was worth it.
