SS Deutschland, France 1940

o



Almost finally done with the sculpting. The Tragegestell 39 was really a pain to construct but I'm glad it's almost over. (Almost as there are still a pair of horizontal straps missing on the vertical sides of the frame). Looking forward to the painting this weekend.

Looks cool. I'm eager to see it painted.

BTW, I have been in two big hardware shops in Berlin and surroundings, but none of them had epoxy putty. But I have found some online shops, which have polymer clays ("Fimo"), but I'm not conviced to buy it, especially because of the need to bake it. What happens e.g., when I put a modified plastic figure into the oven (or use a heat gun)?

Calvin beautiful work as always. Just wondering what is a Tragegestell 39?

Oliver,
yup, plastic gonna get toast in the toaster; hence the need for resin accessories instead of the plastic ones.

Dani,
mi espero tambien!

Marko,
the Tragegestell 39 is a harness that's issued to the operators of the light 5cm light mortar. A good illustration of it could be found in Ron Volstad's Concord title Blitzkrieg.

Superb work as always Mr.Tan. That Tragegestell 39 webbing must have been a pain. Simply can't wait to see it painted, haven't seen much painted from you lately.

Hi Mr. Tan!
I was wondering what that big pouch-like thing is that the dude is wearing on the front og his belt. Looks a bit like a buttstock for a pistol but since it has hinges I'm sure it's something completely different.
Also, nice figure, as always.
