SS Obersturmführer Aldo Wenning

Hi everyone! My second project is german Tiger I commander Aldo Wenning, Ardennes ofensive, December 1944. Figure is DML 70565 with DID hands. Mud is mixture of Acrylic resin Mig Productions, pigments, Tamiya X-9 acrylic paint, X-22 clear and X-20 A thinner for softer finish. Cap is drybrushed with Revell email paints.
Here is it:


Aldo







Lucky Strike



Repainted pink Waffenfarbe.



Mud on his boots.

Dirty face and ear.







Aldo Wenning, Ardennes, December 1944.
Hope you like him,
Michal

Re: SS Obersturmführer Aldo Wenning

Looking good! I like the little touches, like the dirt around the ears and the cuts on his hands.

However, his shoulderboards are incorrect for an Obersturmfuhrer. An Obersturmfuhrer was the Waffen-SS equivalent to an Oberleutnant (or US First Lieutenant). He should have shoulderboards that look like this:



The shoulderboards he's wearing right now are for the lowest enlisted ranks, not an officer. The collar tabs are correct, though.

Nice figure! Where did you get the pips from for his collar insignia?

Re: SS Obersturmführer Aldo Wenning

Very nice. One of the things I pcked up on were the great details you put into the figure. Very realistic, I particularly liked the open pack of cigarettes, that was really well done, I don't think I have seen that before.

Going over the photos again it is really something to see the details you put into this figure, the little cuts, dirty bandage and mud. Very well done, the little details do a lot in telling the story.......Jim
