"Panzergrenadier,1944". A few evenings ago I completed painting another one of Jeff Shius exellent 1/16 figures, which hopefully will find its way to a display cabinet soon. I painted it with acrylics and I added decals from Alliance Modelworks to the cap. The base is a M24 shrapnel sleeve which was found in the Kurland Kessel.
Just in time for christmas I completed this figure so I could give it as a present to my friend and digger colleague Jimmy. The figure was sculpted by the talented Jeff Shiu and is in scale 1/16. I have painted one of these figures before so to make this one a bit different I gave him a helmet instead of the M43 cap the sculpt originally comes with. I mounted it on an empty and cleaned M24 handgrenade which was dug out by me and Jimmy on our last dig in october.
