1/16 scale Rommel figure

ROMMEL1 ROMMEL2 ROMMEL3This model came about when I bought some odds and ends of figure bits from a friend, in among them was the main part of the Tamiya M/gunner figure in the overcoat. I have never been good at figures but seeing this made me decide to have a go at one I had wanted to do for a long time of Rommel in his leather coat. I assembled the greatcoat and cleaned all the belts and trim off and filled a lot of it with green putty, I then fitted a new pair of boots from the spares and finally the Tamiya Rommel head and arms. I fixed a piece of syrofoam to the wood base and put on a couple of posts and some thread for wire.
