SS-Obersturmführer, Das Reich, Russia 1941

I've finally laid on the crowning touches to this protracted commission over last weekend. Hopefully I could squeeze in some time to do some sculpting before the start of fall.

Hi Calvin,

Long time no chat. Excellent piece, like the color scheme you apply..lots of blue, violet in the mixing. Very rich and nice.

Great painting Sir well done ,If I may say one thing it looks like the Helmet Cover was painted in Palm print ? I as as Palm print was never made into Helmet covers , Zeltbahns and the Camo caps .
Some were localy made into helmet covers in totenkopf but again very small numbers
But again I will say great painting work sir

The helmet cover is the "variegated " variant found in the 3rd volume of Michael Beaver's book Uniforms of the Waffen-SS.

Thanks again for the well wishes and kind words. Managing time for work, family and modeling is like walking the tight rope and juggling fire torches all at the same time. Abigail is going to celebrate her first birthday next week so time for modeling is going to halt once again :(
