    Hello All,
    New bust from United Empire Miniatures
    Yugoslav People’s Liberation Army
    Partisan 1945
    (with captured MG 42 machine gun)
    1/9 scale resin bust
    Sculpted by: Pavol Ovecka
    Box art painted by: Mike Cramer
    Item: PO09

    Yugoslav People’s Liberation Army Partisan 1945
    He has a captured German MG 42 machine gun slung over his left shoulder and plenty of ammunition. This was a great bust to paint German shirt, Yugoslav Army cap and nearly 200 bullets. On the base is the Yugoslavian Partisan Army badge 1945. The red flag sticking from the barrel of the machine gun was earned by the machine gunner. It reads: NAJBOLJI MI TRALJEZAC II BATALJUNU PRVOMAJ. TAKMICENJE It means: Best machine gunner II battalion 1.May competition. I painted this bust for the www.unitedempireminiatures.com box art can be ordered on page 10 of our site. I painted this 1/9 scale bust with acrylic's.

    Small corrections needed in order to be grammatically correct:
    NABOLJI MITRALJEZAC
    II BATALJON
    PRVOMAJSKO TAKMICENJE

    (PRVOMAJ. TAKMICENJE - also correct)

    I like the bust very much by the way. Must have.

    According this illustration correct text could be:

    NABOLJI MITRALJEZAC U
    II BATALJONU ZA
    PRVOMAJ. TAKMICENJE

    Or

    NABOLJI MITRALJEZAC
    II BATALJONA ZA
    PRVOMAJ. TAKMICENJE

    It might help if you tell me where did you get this photo. Is it from some book?
    Judging by surroundings my bet is that this photo was taken somewhere on Croatian cost. There is some water in the lower right corner. Secondly, text on the flag is written in "Latinic" letters. One more thing that indicates that this is Croatia.
    Right now I can tell you this much.
