Being a modeller for quite a few years now, I decided to explore the endless possibilities that the world (through internet) offers, and come up with a series of ways of building, modelling and painting fast (but not hastily), to create the worlds I was seeing in history books since I was little. . .If you care to join me. . . This is the place to be! And, I promise you to find the way (or ways)!!

Medic!!!!

Good day everyone!

It's been a while since my last post, but due to work reasons I didn't have much time to play with my toys! That didn't prevent me from thinking though (sth that surely is very uncommon for me)!

That's why I decided to make a simple conversion, in order to make some medics for my US troops! I was inspired by Mork's blog (a great blog by the way, you must surely visit it), who used some figures of German common infantrymen to make them medics.

For my ETO US force, I decided to use a figure from Italeri's #6120 set - ''American Infantry'', the ''Bazooka man''!!!



The conversion that I did to him, was simply cutting his weapon from his hand, and by doing that, what was left was a figure giving his hand (or some morphine) to a fellow wounded infantry man.

This is how he turned out (in a group of 3 actually):









I hope you like them!
Comments and critics are more than welcome! :-)

  7. Wow T, when you get around to thinking you pull out all the stops ;-) these are great. Add a few Pegasus D-Day Ranger medics helping the fallen and you will have a super medic team.

  12. Thank you all for your kind words.
    @Monty: I use an acrylic Wood varnish that I bought from my local crafts store. It was very cheap (11.90 euro / 750 ml) It is called Aquaxyl and it is manufactured here in Greece. I think that there might be good equivalents also, in your location.
