Heeresbergführer, I'm working on a Ringel HS. I've got the sculpting finished, and am beginning to paint him. I have tried taking pics of him to post, but I have the worst Kodak digital camera known to man (I'm not cheap, I'm just a traditionalist and prefer 35mm), and all the pics are too fuzzy. Anyway, I was just wondering if you happen to know what color his eyes were, and if his hair was black or brown. I need info on his insignia and awards, as well. Also, what uniform would you recommend? I was thinking DiD's Keitel, since his uni looks oversized and Ringel was a big man. Thanks.

Grüß Di' Gebirgler Jamie,

Sounds great. Would love to see some photos of your Ringel HS. Take some pics with your 35mm and get a CD made of your shots and post them! I don't know the color of his eyes. Here's a portrait of him that I have as a postcard:

Danke, Heeresbergführer. His eyes look green from that portrait, but they could be brown, too. That is the portrait that has me confused about his hair color. The hair under his hat looks black, but the gamsbart looks brown. In most photos I can see some grey mottled in.

Servus Jäger Jamie,

I think you would be safe with black and some gray...I don't think he was using "Grecian Formula!" Razz

Drei mal Horrido!

For me his eyes at the postcard seem to be a greyish-blue ...

Please show us some pictures of the steps up to the finished HS !!!

Best, J.

kendalljamie,I have been trying to find a Ringel looking HS for a couple of years with NO luck.
Is there any chance you will be making these HS to sell? I would really like one.
