Generalmajor Ramcke, Africa

Been a while since I posted anything in here, but I have been focused on retirement and walking the AT. I did find some time to work on a some FJs. I got a DML Hermann Ramcke for a good deal. This is him in early/mid 1942. I added some of Nomad's shoulder boards (though I have to tweak how I have them attached), put some pieces into his pockets, and worked a button hole on the open pocket. I have several pictures of Ramcke with some kinda leather strap attached to his right epaulet and top pocket (not sure what it is for). I want to add a Luftwaffe Ground Assault Badge and need to weather him, but that will have to wait.

CHE's Ramcke figure is always a nice addition not only to any DAK scene but FJR also. Great figure and looking forward to the update pics of your intent. Cheers, Steve

Thanks. I was really enjoying getting back into the hobby, but my timing is a little off. As of yesterday all our stuff is in storage until we get done hiking the Appalachian Trail. Should be done in September and then my semi-retired self is looking forward to working on my 1/6th stuff more.
