|Hans Ulrich Rudel|
Out-of-the box construction.
I was recently given this bust. By the Iron cross with oak leaves, sword and diamonds at the neck of the figure, it believe it represents Hans Ulrich Rudel. The shape of the figure is very similar to the german pilot, so i googled the name and scale and found some nice pictures of the painted model. The casting is very good and detail is fantastic. I used a resin base i have stored for a while as there was none for the bust. Below you see the steps of the construction as well as the parts. Lets see how it will end up!
1) the kit parts:
2) Construction: The face was painted with several shades of flesh from Vallejo acrylics.
For the uniform, i used Tamyia medium blue with my airbrush, doing shadows an highlights by adding flat black and flat white to the base color. Details were painted with Vallejo acrylics. The headphones and cap were also painted with Vallejo acrylics.
