Machine Gunner of the 3rd Division SS Totenkopf, Jeffshiu´s Miniatures 1/16

January 7, 2022 · in Figures · · 10 · 1.6K

Greetings dear fellow modellers! A while ago I managed to finish my next piece, this time I reached for a machine gunner from the production of in scale. I replaced several accessories, a field bottle and a pitch of Alpine Miniatures, a Dragon ammunition belt, I added a bayonet and a Tamiya field shovel. Everything is painted with Andrea Coror acrylic paints, I used the oil paints only to represent the wood for the machine gun fire, the grenade handles and the field shovel handles.

I used various AK preparations for the creation of the terrain to create the base, the grass tufts come from the production of the Czech manufacturer Fox Model, I used spruce root to create the branch, I created oak leaves with a rash from a real, dry oak leaf. I used Deluxe Materials products to create winter effects.

I hope you enjoy my work.
