75mm scale Sturmtruppen 1917
is available online from Squadron.com
Well I have finally finished, and all I can say
is "what a fantastic figure kit"!
Like the French Infantryman that I built
earlier this year, the Storm Trooper went together without any
problems at all.
kit comprises nine resin parts, grey in colour. I began by cleaning
the parts. This was a fast task, as flash and seams were minimal. I
then secured the arms to the body, ensuring that the hands
(which are moulded onto the rifle) were aligned properly.
The head, helmet and loose items were left off
until after painting.
The entire figure was painted using Vallejo
The base was made from a piece of high-density
foam carved into shape, covered with wood glue to seal it and
crushed white porous brick was then sprinkled over the combination
and allowed to dry.
The trench section was assembled using
Artesania timber cut into small sections and placed individually.
Once everything was dry, I sprayed overall with
Tamiya Flat Earth and began weathering. Mig Productions Pigments
were used for this task. Finally, some debris and barbed wire were
put in place and the base was complete.
My objective for the base was to create an
impression from both sides of the front, whether viewing the scene
from inside the trench, or from the other side, ready to receive a
small hand held gift!
Thanks to Squadron for the review
