    Hey John,

    Was this one of your sculpts, if so was it ever officially put into production?


    I saw it for sale on ebay once but it was clearly a re-cast so i stayed away from it..

    Sort of regret not buying it but i don't do recasts..

    Was originally sculpted for Kirin but never went into production a long, long, time ago in 1993 I believe. Not quite sure how a re-caster got hold of it .......

    30 years ago. 1/9th scale

    This one was for sale on ebay "France" but later found itself being sold to me via "ebay" UK, once i saw it was a recast i requested my money back from the seller and shipped it back to him.

    I thought at some point in time i'll acquire a genuine un-started in the original box example, little did i know....


    I have also seen this image floating about the net too..

    As far as I know the former owner of Kirin (and Jaguar Models) gave away some preproduction castings of this Fallschirmjäger without a box - at last I got my figure from him. There was a similar figure in the Warrior Models line where John had replaced the head and the arms with a new weapon.
    Because I liked the sculpt so much I built up both back then. (The magzine pouches for the FG 42 were scratchbuilt by me and were not part of the kit - the same goes for the camo net)
    Cheers, Martin

    Hi John,
    Great Dak figure I just hope all that effort and detail on the soles does not get lost in the casting process.
  14. John Rosengrant Well-Known Member

    This is one I just completed in 1/16th scale . This was a unique opportunity (commissioned by my friend Zongwen Huang) to sculpt a really interesting subject-82nd "Cowboy" at Normandy 1944. Hope you guys like them DSC_0085.jpeg

    Great looking figure John. Must have been a challenging project. Hope to see it painted in a while. Is it a one off commission?

    Excellent, great subject matter, and certainly very well sculpted, John! I like it!!!

    Is this based on a period photo or is it an idea from the guy who commissioned it?

    Either way it's a lovely original piece and I hope we get to see it painted up. Thanks for the share!
