A little home for the holidays project, inspired by Jerry's recent Fireman Vignette. Extended with home w/ the flu ...

I was in the mood for something different, I've never done a Luftwaffe Figure. Going w/ Italy 1944 - Luftwaffe Blue and Italian Camo.
Starting w/ old Tamiya figure (perhaps from the old Pak75 kit) that had good posture for running. Want to get that feeling of movement & motion.












Camo next !

Camo blocked it.
1st blend / filter on, gonna need more...







Few more filters to tone down the camo then add his equipment.

Getting there...

Some of the equipment in place. Trying to give it that full battle rattle look. Bouncing around as the figure runs.
Hatch to scratch some bandoliers so I could get them flapping around.

And the base...
This may make more sense an help show why the figure is doing what it's doing.

Tom,
I think you have a problem with the photo sharing. Nothing is showing up for me.
