En 120mm figur från Verlinden. Mitt första alster som pånyttfödd modellbyggare. Ansiktet målades med oljefärg och resten med Polly S. Figuren är skuggad och highlightad med pastellpulver. Basen byggdes upp av Celluclay. Sandsäckar är gjorda av ungshärdad lera, taggtråden knuten av tunn koppartråd, skyltarna är uppförstorade från Verlindens 1/35 sats. Titta noga på kartväskan som är gjord av vikt och ihoplimmad blyfolie. Idén var att skildra en vaktpost vid en vägspärr i Frankrike i Juni 1944.

This is a 120mm figure from Verlinden. This was my first kit as a returning modeller. The face and other exposed flesh parts were painted in artist oils with the rest of the figure in Polly S. The figure is shadowed and highlighted using only pastel chalks. Base was built using Celluclay, sandbags where made of clay, the barbed wire being knitted of thin copper wire and the signs enlarged from Verlinden's 1/35 set. Take a close look at the mapcase which is made of leadfoil being folded and glued together. My intention was to show a guard at a roadblock in France, June1944.
