Hi All,

P.K.A. AUSF.G - GUSTAV It's the little things. 1/35 scale.
Recipe.

Gustav - is from Hasegawa and built straight out of the box and I replaced the head from the kit with a USMC Tanker head and helmet from Miniart.

Base - is high density foam and the rocks are molds from Woodland Scenics and the grass tufts are from Army Painter. The dead tree trunk and roots I picked up from the local bushland and the lizard is from Tamiya.

The Gustav, lizard and rocks were painted and weathered using Vallejo Paints.

I love it. Great story telling. I like the face mask on the pilot. Very timely
