    On 17th September it is the anniversary of the Battle of Arnhem and I am going to you to sculpt 3 x Arnhem busts.

    It is a series of themed supplement busts V-heros of WWII. / from MMM /

    As the first bust is : Obergruppenfuhrer Wilhelm Bittrich
    scale: 1.9
    Bust is a WIP. it is necessary to complete the epaulettes. It is at 90%.

    The personality of the warring parties will be next?
    Try to guess ..........

    Looking good.

    I'd say Urquhart, John Frost, or Baskeyfield are next? Or Sosabowski?

    From the Allied side it should be one each from the UK, USA, Poland and France, which with the German makes five busts!!

    If the busts are about Arnhem, why include the US?
    Chosing 3 nationalities related to Arnhem '44, I'd say it should be British, German and Polish.

    Pardon my French, but what did the French do exactly?

    As to the US...the 101st and 82d Airborne held open amidst fierce fighting, the corridor to Arnhem....so the British Armor could link up with the Brit Paras.
    Look up the 101st's battle for Veghel!
