German Infantryman


by Eric Giesler

The Tamiya 1/16 German Infantryman was assembled using Tamiya Extra Thin cement.



I applied the cement to the joints and waited for the plastic to soften and bubble out.


Then the plastic was pushed in firmly to eliminate the seam line.


After the figure was assembled, I base coated it with dark gull grey followed by light gull grey.


Then Testors Model Master White was applied, by drybrushing layer upon layer until the desired effect was achieved. Military Brown was also used in drybrushing.


The seams of the uniform were washed using acrylic paints. Next, I’m going to weather the equipment.


I am thinking of constructing another one, this time in a camouflage uniform, with the optional MP-44 that comes with the kit.
