Hey Paul; For the figures shown above, I started off with two-part Milliput for the basic form and then finished off details, like folds on the uniforms, with two-part Apoxie Sculpt. Both can be fou

This is a 120mm WW1 British light machinegunner by David Parkins that I modified the head (including the helmet strap and bales), arms and added the base. The battle insignia was added and represents

Well, compared to a pic of the real Galland apparently I painted him looking a bit older than he might be, but than again when I painted it I didn't have Internet and all that and only used a pic from a Janes book as a model.

Two more.

Hallo Dolf, :beer:

Great model, you got the desert "Choclate chip*) camo pattern well done, I always felt though the cap was too small for the head on this figure :unsure:

* it was found to be a great pattern of camo for the Nevada Desert, USA, but totaly unsuitable for the sands of Kuwait & Iraq :P

Dear Kevin,

Thanks for your kind words buddy.

Not being a professional I admit I'm kind of proud of my camo :P This was done maybe some 15 years ago +/-, but I kind of remember it wasn't an easy task and demanded quite a few tests in spare pieces of resina (the material these figures are made of) before I managed to get the effect I pretended.

...I always felt though the cap was too small for the head on this figure :unsure:

Right, you can see that in the real picture of the real Schwarzkopf, as if he used say a M size for a L size head :P

Fortunately the model came with a cap that fits just right on the top of his head :D

Here is a 120mm WW1 german machinegunner by Verlinden. The helmet was reworked into a more accurate shape and the chinstrap, the mg strap, the mg flash reducer, the bayonette troddel, the central bread bag hook, the EK2 ribbon and the mg qualification sleeve insignia were added. The figure was painted to be a member of LGR 109.

I started out with the old 90mm Superior Willie II figure from the 70's and ended up keeping and using only portions of the torso and the helmet. The head was built from scratch, the body enongated and the curaiss was filled in and detailed (including the agiullette).

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
