    US 2nd Armoured Division Tanker, France 1944

    Please find below my recently completed US Tanker

    I modified a Dam Toys headsculpt and body and used uniform and parts from Battle Gear Toys, DID, Soldier Story and Dragon

    I wanted to portray an exhausted, grimy and sweaty tanker re-arming and taking the chance of a quick smoke break

    I used a combination of artist's oils, acrylic and enamel paint on the figure and pastel chalks for final weathering

    It has been based on a walnut plinth with 2nd Armoured crest

    I love the weathering. You make everything look so easy with your WIP pictures on FB. Too bad some other modellers don't appreciate the time and effort put into figures like this. I wish I could actually sit in on your work when you're using your sculpting clay.

    Thank You for posting. The "Camel" trademark was already in use during WWII (?), interesting.
