Well here's my next project, awaiting all the parts to show up for this. Won an "Elsa" figure on ebay and plan to give her the works. My first female subject so quite a departure from the norm. Check out what I have in mind, spent today creating cloth insignia for this figure. Original "Elsa" was never supplied with an arm band or sleeve patch. Going to use a phicen body and kumik head, rolled up sleeves the idea. Changing the shoes to black which wouldn't have fit the new body anyway, white hose and a medical kit in the form of a converted officers satchel. Also will include medical canteen.

there was an updated version of Elsa, came with Steiner.... I think it was a very low quantity release

So, in effect DML made 2 nurses Elsa and Eva.....
Quality aside, no one else did a WWII German nurse......low quality beats no quality, every time......:wink

Gebirgsjäger, great photo of the "real" 1:1 nurses! Good luck with your project.....can't wait to see the finished version! :thumb

Our fellow member said low quantity not quality. :thumb

I would agree with your statement though.

Ah, so he did.....my mistake....I'm so used to DML bashing that I didn't pick up on the "N" instead of an "L".....:wink

Yes, that CH release was quite limited......

Wasn't the only other 1:6 military nurse (not counting Barbie) the 1967 G.I. Joe version.....?

It takes a lot of effort to live up to Senta Berger's Sister Eva in Cross of Iron.

Thanks for your comments guys. Yes I discovered images of the Cyberhobby release, rare as hens nads I'm guessing. Redid the sleeve patch, wasn't happy with the touch-up I did. The new and final version below, also a pic of the Dragon body...not hard to improve upon!



Early Dragon body....somewhat lacking in shape.

Thanks Russcal,

Yes have only been making insignia for a short time, use printable cotton through an inkjet, surprising detail can be achieved.

Interesting project. I never bought that figure unfortunately, but it shouldn't be so hard to upgrade it to something really good.

Strange that no other company came along and made any nurses? I mean we have so many SS soldiers we drown in them, but the number of nurses and other more niched figures is really low.

Yeah, we could've used more WWII medical types........nurses and medics! I think DML only made 2 German medics; one Heer and one SS........

As for Allied medics, i do believe DML did 2 of them (both U.S.), and CH did a 101st Airborne one......

Not sure what other companies did in the medical department......
