75mm Winter German recce

This is a figure i started during the end of the napoleonic couple and is primarily sculpted in SuperSculpey(Polymer clay). There are some major benefits to using Polymers over epoxy putties the main one being the very long time you have to work with the putty without it hardening. I worked the upper body in several sessions over a week period without hardening the putty.
The theme behind this sculpt will be a two or three figure vignette showing German troops recce-ing there defensive position ready for a Russian offensive. This is the first of the three figures and i will try to make uniform variation between all three figures to add interest.
Still a couple of little things to finish on the figure including belt buckle, mp40 etc.

Great looking figure Steve!
I'm curious to see the other figures. Your sculpting skills are still improving with every figure. Very nice folds and details.

Marcel good to hear from you and thanks for the comment on the figure, the second figure will be a tank commander and the third i think an artillary officer but not sure yet.
