Hi all,

Can anyone help me with the nose cone colour on German airforce and Navy F-104G's. Some model manufacturers claim it is light blue, some that they are white and some that they are very pale grey. I have searched lots of German F-104 photos and there is a case for all three shades, so can anyone help?

If you can also help with a paint from either Humbrol, Revell, Vallejo or Model Master ranges I would be even more grateful.

TIA.

Doug S.

> American Sniper WWII (Pvt. Jackson)
Posted by Ulf Petersen - 07-20-14 20:00 - 0 comments
Dear fellow modellers,

I would like to show you a bust of the new greek manufacturer "Pathos Miniatures".
It shows an American Sniper of WWII from the 2nd Ranger Battalion. The shape will however seem known to anyone who remembers the movie "Saving Private Ryan". In fact it shows the face of the actor Barry Pepper playing the private Jackson.

The resin bust is of a very good quality, well casted and very detailed.
I painted it with Vallejo Model Color and oil paints.

Before the pictures a short explanation: the actor Barry Pepper is left handed. The bust holds the rifle like a right handed person. First I thought this was a manufacturers fault or had been done for copyright reasons. But the following screen shot shows that this position is authentical:



In this case it is due to the marching order: left row, muzzle to the outside.

Here are the pictures. I hope you like them...







The bust has been delivered without the helmet net. I made this one from an anti-fly-net of plastic. I had to preform this tough stuff with a hair-dryer over the knob of a kitchen tool and glueing the pieces between the belts and the helmet's edge became a hard job - but in the end everything settled. Better than nothing!









Thank you very much for your attention!

Regards

Ulf
