    Default SS Tank Commander

    Here is a figure that i have just completed for a fellow collector and modeller. The figure is from Verlinden, he is 120 mm. The medals are photo etch parts and some are scratch built. The insignia are scratch built as well as the throat mics and switch. Also the earphone band is scratch built. The visor has real twisted wire chin cord with small brass nails to represent the buttons.
    I hope you enjoy, opinions are welcome.
    Ralph.

    Great work Ralph, I've done some of these myself, but nowhere near as good as yours, sensei!!

    Good job.
    I especially like the headphones and the wear on the 'Dienstglas.'
    (though you could have wrapped the latter in burlap; if it was good enough for Peiper, it might have worked for that guy too Just kidding - he looks too sharp for the last days of the Ardennes Offensive).
