Well, here is another figure to share with everyone. The addiction continues. I started off with Toys City Waffen SS officer uniform. I purchased it from WarToys.com and they included a free nude with the uniform. What a deal! Anyway I replaced the rubber supplied collar rank and insignia with embroiderd ones from Glory Venture Insignia's. I used the supplied brown officers belt, purchased a brown leather Luger holster, binoculars and leather case. These items came from Toy Soldier Brigade. I then replaced the plastic MP40 with a metal version that I got off Ebay. The head sculpt was replaced with a new one from Dragon. The last item, I installed black leather gloved hands. My past two posts were outdoor shots using a natural setting(MG42 Gunner 1944, and 101st Airborne Rifleman 1945). I decided to try something differenet this time. Thanks for looking.

I was going to buy the toys city wehrmacht officer uniform. very nice.
If you get the uniform, I highly suggest getting the collar tabs from Glory Venture Insignia. http://www.toysoldierbrigade.com/Glory Venture/Glory Venture Page.htm

They are actual cloth with embroidered thread. All ranks are available and they look so much more realistic. They come joined together as a set and you will need to cut them out. Before I cut, I put a small film of Fabri-Tac on the back side. This will help keep the threads from fraying when you cut them out.

I did not care for the rubber litzen either. That is why ordered the new embroidered cloth ones. If you e-mail them and indicate the cap insignia is missing they should send a replacement. I was missing a gold shoulder rank pip and they just mailed another one to me.

litzen is no biggy, had some spare DiD ones.. I'll have to repaint but whatever. I just ordered a CVI heer cap badges set. I haven't had any response from Toys City about the missing insignia, and it's not Monkey Depots fault. can always use spare insignia anyhow. I also didn't like the knights cross so i ordered a new one of those as well. I also just got a "Bruno Adler". so i got that to work on in the mean time.

Thats to ironic, I ordered another knights cross too. Its a shame 95% of the uniform is first rate. I don't know why they cheapened up a few items. I can't wait to see your POST when you get it completed.

WOW OUTSTANDING!!! I am impressed with the collar litzen! Holy Cow! Did you get the free nude when you ordered? What a great looking figure! I have a couple of more waiting in the wings right now. I have ordered 2 Ti-lite rifles, one sniper and the other K98. I am just waiting for them to arrive.
