    Hi Again :)

    This is my next piece for Stormtroopers.....

    120/13 German Infantry Officer, Winter 1942/44

    Cleanup was nothing to worry about and the figure fits together without any problems ....

    I've been working away at it so this is catch-up :)

    And I used an airbrush to lay down the basic uniform colours ( thanks Dave :D )

    Primer ........

    The Face is quite hidden inside the hood so I went for a higher contrast than is my norm :) This is about half done .....

    [IMG]

    Top and bottom of figure now epoxied and a touch of filler on the back, Painting of uniform well on it's way .......

    Lower parts being worked on .....

    More as I do it :)

    Mark looking good so far mate, i like your method of replicating the top of those felt boots, very nice.

    one thing puzzles me, why the two weapons ? The PPSH is obviously his primary weapon as he has a PPSH mag pouch on his belt so why the MP40 slung on his back ? I know you didnt sculpt him but thought you may have an explenation.

    Grant .... Thanks ! :)

    Steve .... Thanks :) I'm guessing the PSSH is a recently aquired piece ( the germans prefered it??? I think??? )
