Late WWII German Infantry Set from Tamiya

Finally completed the fourth figure ahead of next weekend's show in Penang. 

This set will be officially launched in Japan on June 17, though I am told some parts of the world have already received shipments of this figure set.

Late WWII German Infantry Set from Tamiya

Here are some WIP shots of the commander figure from Tamiya's upcoming German Infantry Set (Late War) due for release in June 17. I have taken the liberty to embellish the veteran Oberfeldwebel with the Crimean Shield, Close Combat Clasp, Tank destruction badges and Infantry Assault badge from Rado Miniatures RDM35PE04.

20. Waffen-Grenadier-Division der SS (estnische Nr. 1). Battle of Tannenberg Line, 1944

This is a 1/35 scale conversion based off Tamiya's upcoming release German Infantry Set Late WW2.  I swapped out the original face with one from the US Tankcrew Set (ETO). The insignias like the collar tabs are taken from Rado Miniatures whereas the eagle patch and chevron on the shoulder are from Archer Transfers. The sleeve shield is made from thinly rolled putty and painted with  Estonia's national colours, Blue, Black and White. The belt buckle is sculpted from Miliput Super Fine. Painting is done with AK Gen 3 acrylics.
