    Fallschirmjager with MG42 "Hitler Zipper" - Eastern Front, 1943. New photos



    Updated the project with some new images. The headsculpt after a day at the Eastern Front now looks pretty battle-worn and weary! I've managed to also source an account of fighting on the Eastern Front by a Fallschirmjager... it makes some interesting reading!

    Enjoy!



    Hi guys,

    As you can see, I've a long queue of early Dragon FJs lining up for a make-over; I've just completed this MG42 FJ gunner who's all nicely suited for the harsh Russian Winter. I hope you enjoy seeing him.

    oh yes, a few more pixs can be found at:

    Thanks for viewing!

    Chelseaboy: Thanks, I hope you like the recently uploaded images too. I like these very much.

    3yes: The weathering is very important when working with white snow-suits; it's really impossible to believe such suits can remain pristine white after weeks at the frontline. My research showed that even laundered snowsuits still came out were badly stained! Thanks!

    Awesome work! Looks like he's had some tough slogging against old man winter. Always like seeing FJ figures, every time I see them, makes me want to add a couple to my collection.
