Adolf Galland, German Fighter Pilot Ace, WWII, 200mm Verlinden figure
The only 200mm figure I’ve ever made, it had to have some meaning. Him being a WWII fighter pilot Ace, and on top of that being my homonym, it was a good match 😉
Again, on the close-up, I notice the eyes could be better, but when looking at these figures at a normal distance, one never notices such small details.
Overal I’m happy with the final result.
Detail on the boots and the flares (unless it’s something else, but I don’t think he carried a gunshot on his Messerschmitt 🙂 Even thought the legend says that he would smoke his cigar while on mission, and that he even had a cigarette lighter installed on his aircraft! Not sure about the credibility of this!) .
