Hi Taesung, I really liked the way you captured the youthful look of those HJ panzer men. They really look like teens as seen from the photos of Signal magazine shown during the Normandy invasion.

Good work! Really am awed by your talent! Cheers!

Hello Gents,
Thank you all for the compliments!

Special thanks to Calvin Tan. As I have written many
times before, painters should get all the credit because
same figure can look totally "different" when painted
by different artists. You really bring life into figures.

Actually, these figures are very loosely based on the
well-known pics of Brommann and his buddies (3SSPD) during
an award ceremony in 45. But I changed details here and there.
As AFV modeler myself, I can see them being used in wide
variety of AFVs and settings. I only wish I can find some time
to build tanks...

Looks great. My problem is I really don't dig SS folks. Any plans for some GD tankers and troops? Again they look great.

Beautiful sculpting

Any idea when they will be released?

Here's the image of the second figure:


These figures will be announced to all my dealers this month (as soons
as Calvin sends me the pics ) Then it take about 2-4 weeks for your
local dealers to received them... depends on how fast they place an order.

I'd like to thank Calvin for the beautifully painted figures on such a short
notice.

Fantastic paint job Calvin

I find painting black uniforms realistically difficult and that is a superb effort.
