    Continuing on from my previous post i have just finished this nice bust from MIG productions,i purchased it some time ago but having completed the 4x Young Busts i thought i would add this in as well.
    The bust is very nicely produced in resin and was a real joy to paint.

    The bust replicates a Tank commander Possibly Tiger or Panther and portrays the bust wearing the U-boat type leather jacket which was evident in the normandy and ardenne offensive.

    According to the shoulder insignia this bust is based on a member of the LSAH,prior to the Ardenne offensive this unit was re-designated PzAbt 501,as with the previous ardenne post some light weathering was achieved to show light frosting of snow,the headphone wires were made with fuse wire.

    A very nice bust and highly recommended for those interested in WW2 german subjects.
    All coments and critisism most welcome,thanks for taking the time to look.

    Happy Painting - Brian :)

    Fabulous, Brian. Like the previous busts, the paint job and little snowflakes on the figure, make your work super realistic .There´s cold in the atmosphere. Cigarette also is fine but lacks the smoke. (It's a joke)

    really good work on all your busts like the frosted effect, only thing I would say is the piping looks more purple than pink.

    Great stuff Brian...

    the contrast in the face is great! My only nitpick would be the thickness of the wires. The look a bit on the bulky side to me but in any event it is a fine fine job! Congrats!
