Just catching up. Love the goat, but why do I keep thinking of Goatboy of Saturday night Live fame.




Thanks Greg,nice to see you got the correct buttons pushed !
LoL yes,goatboy. From back in the dim past when SNL was still sort of funny.

Hi there Jerry, great work on the modification of those figures. Another skill which is completely new at my end that I will need practice at. Are the clothing details such as pockets done by hand with plaster or parts shaved off from other figures ?

Awesome work, looking forward to the painted results. Thanks for sharing.

The pockets and the other areas that show up white in the above pics are all two part epoxy putty. I forgot to add the latest pic with primer on in my last post. Here is the current state. Needs a bit more smoothing out in some areas. the last thing I added here were some PE boot soles but they don't show up well in this pic unfortunately.

Overcome by Liquid Cement fumes, Jerry’s figures finally succumb to oblivion…

So, so good, looking forward to seeing them painted

OK then,small update on figs number 49 and 50.
Here is the rough cobbling already posted.


Here we go after three aps of putty. The last one was just applied on the hair and hands,etc. I still have to smooth out the dings and rough spots. But ya get the gist now pretty much.

Kleine katzschen,
Tamiya kitten from the loading tankers set from many moons ago.



Not a big update. I am trying to finish a small project so I get a sense of completion. One needs that once in a while. Or,at least,I do.

Mike,Marcos and Kevin,
Thanks all for the excellent comments. For the goat,I used a Tamiya goat from years past and scribed the hair detail,drilled the ears out a bit and cut the plastic beard off. Then a base coat of ivory white,followed by my usual judicious application of extended cotton strands. I then painted some details and finished with off white paint. I see his tail got a little bent though.

For those who can read German: a nice background info to Mr. Rutman's 'Trinkebrüder'!
Just wondering if an overcorrect Nazi official would not have handed them over to a Feldjäger unit?
But maybe Mr. Rutman has already painted both the official and a couple of Feldjäger NCOs, being on their way to the crime zone. I wouldn't be suprised if he has.



Thanks for posting the interesting read Paul !! Very cool stuff.
From what I have read,unless it was an area like Berlin,where a lot of resistance was given,the party officials were the first ones to leave and very quickly ! So,no chaindogs will be coming for these two !

I love the goat too! Will it be riding on top of the wagon?
Just kidding!

Paul - thanks for the link to the very interesting article. I guess it wasn't just American hillbillies who enjoyed their "moonshine."

Sorry Mike,I hope you didn't wager too high on final jepardy.

The correct answer is "What are two old friends that fought through the war to do when it's about to end ?".
They raid someones' cellar and get stinkin' drunk off course Alex.


I bet it all! 😭 ... Gonna' go get plastered now! ... "I love these guys! ... hiccup!" 😵

Great job, already! You've really nailed their postures! ... Not that I would know! Lol!🍺

Here is where I am after a lot of cutting,grinding,slicing and dicing. When the plastic dust settled this showed up.



Still very basic and still need hands,etc but you get the gist. These guys will get stuck in an out of the way corner somewhere.

ON behalf of myself and my goat,I thank you Sean,

Here are the next two folks under way. I cherry picked the parts I need to get these two close to the pose I want. I will use resin heads and hands. Anyone have a guess what they will be doing?
