FM Bar Gunner, Battle of the Bulge

Good day all,

This is one of my latest fig : a FM Bar gunner in 1944 during the battle of the Bulge ......


( I've added a little bit extra hairs on the beard )



I have also upgraded the shoepacs ( DML ) best as my possible with new ringlets, real string, etc...:


And...........made a small snow base :


Thanks for looking !!!

Real Nice figure and base!

I REALLY like the shoepacks at first sight I thought they were 100% custom from newline or something!

Nice One Trooper!

Great figure! The boots are much improved. Your base is fantastic and the Bunny was a great idea!

Really nice!!

Love the figure and the base. I'm a bit undecided about the rabit - in a way it funny and nice - and in a way a bit too much. I was almsot using a mouse in one of my own dios - but didn't have the guts...

Just another brilliant piece! The base and snow is so textured and convincing that the fact its a model remains elusive. Your work on the BAR gunner is also commendable. The weathering of the uniform, particularly around parts that frequently contact the ground, is well thought out. Great HS choice and I love the upgrades on the boots. Just amazing.
