The Human Cannonball, 2nd Armoured Div., Germany 1945

Here is another conversion based off a famous wartime photo using Tamiya's Sturmtiger barrel and the US Tank Crew ETO set. I swapped out the original head with one from Hornet Models (which I must say bears an uncanny resemblance to James Franco) and married it with the Tamiya helmet. The arms are re-positioned and jacket seams detailed with thin strips of rolled out epoxy putty. The ambush scheme is hand painted with Vallejo acrylics as I figured it would be easier and quicker than doing a mask and spray with the airbrush. 

I am currently about half-way done on this piece and I reckon it would need another few more sessions to refine the painting.
