  1. Hi P.k. As someone who avoids painting figures like the plague, I'm impressed by the paint detail you've achieved on such a small model; it could easily pass for something in a larger scale. If I had one minor comment, it's that his eyeballs appear to be looking in two slightly different directions.

  2. Nice figurine PK.

  3. eyeballs really look at the picure strange and offset.
    with the naked eye live is not observed.
    once fix maybe?
    im figures build and paint once a decade.

    • P.k, I had never heard of that unit, before that. Italian uniform, helmet and load bearing equipment? Is that a Carcano of some sort?
      Did the Eastern Front chew them up, like the other "volunteer" formations? I'd suspect they were not all that enthusiastic, being "drafted" into Faschist service?
      Really interesting historical sidelight, thanks for pointing it out, and for the figure, well done!

  4. Armed with a short rifle is Carcano m38 rifle 7.35mm .

    which I have in my collection .

  5. Great painting work there. The cloth texture is lovely. The eyes are the hardest part and the thing that everyone looks at first, unfortunately. I think my eyes might be crossed after being ‘forcibly mobilized’! 1/35 scale is tiny for figures, isn’t it?
