Pasubio: Italians in Russia Scene WIP 10/24/10
Posted by Mic on Sunday, October 24, 2010 8:43 PM

Beginning a new figure scene... trying something new for me: Italian infantry. This scene will take place in Russia circa winter 1942. 4 Italian figs, 1 Russian civilian. The figures so far (mfr's images):

 

Started with the officer from the Royal Models kit. I spent an hour with the Dremel / pin chisel bit, removing the head out from under that cool cap, replacing with a Hornet head. Used a spare hand to remove the pointing, "Hey You" pose, to depict more of a "move, plz!" pose:

 

I've been trying to eek more detail out of the figures, scribing along cuffs, straps, etc. Here's the Alarmi figure with some of this goin' on:

 

Results (I think it looks pretty good, brings out the relief):



Remove some resin in spots to get the clarity of the details:

 

Here they are together, the action of the scene's storyline will be talked about  a little later. Nothing too dramatic or anything. Just tryin' to get a new project rollin'.

 

If you're here, I thank ya...

The fig. with the carcano definitely has that Musollini look going on.  Great work so far and look forward to more!  Not something you see every day, I like it.

Minor progress update; 2 more figures. Machine gunner is about 100% built, gotta go back and do some touch ups and clean ups around the PE.

 

This Alexander figure received a head transplant, like the first figure in this thread. Liked the hat, lose the head.

 

A few minutes with a Dremel, and lots of test fitting, does the trick.

 

Hard to tell in photos, but the face I added has more character, in my opinion. I can not remember the manufacture of this head. I've sculpted a scarf for him, and added a bit of hair. Love them Squadron Green sideboards.

 

He still has some minor PE work to be done.

Thanks for lookin'
