Sculpting the Stahlhelm Series “MG 42 Gunner, 1944.”

 

1The first step is choose a good pose and sculpting the anatomical proportions of the body in 1/24 scale.

Every figure present its own challenges, in this figure was the winter uniform. This type of garments produces deep creases specially in the articulations and the places where the belts and the equipment lies.

The winter uniform is made by some different sewed parts, there are visible seams in the arms of the parka and trowsers.

To build the MG 42 I had the opportunity to measure one in Euromilitaire, thanks to the kindness of group of reenactors. It’s no easy find collectors who can have one in their collection. Such as the helmet, and the other elements of the equipment, were photographed and measured from original specimens.

That’s me, photographing a real MG42.

Cleaning the resin figure, STH 04 Afrika Korps.

To remove the resin blocks of the casting, there are two essential tools, a saw blade and a diamond file.

This type of files are really smooth and the effect is like use a soft sand paper, my favorite files from now.

First, remove the excess of resin of the molds with the saw blade. And after use the diamond file. Now the arm fits perfect.

 

Removing the excess of resin in the right arm.

In the inner part of the arm, just between the arm and the rifle, there is a little excess of resin. Remove it with a sharp blade, and soften it with a sand paper of nº 600.

The canteens should be removed with care to don’t loose the detail and the fits.
