Overview

The German Fallschirmj�ger were elite soldiers, a factor that continues to ensure their popular appeal today, particularly among modellers. There are many Fallschirmj�ger figures on the market, in plastic, metal and resin, and in all three of the most popular scales - 1/35, 1/32 (54mm), and 1/15 or 1/16 (120mm). Manufacturers currently produce figures related to every major campaign they were involved in. This is the first book to address the subject of German paratroopers for the figure modeller. All the major items of Fallschirmj�ger uniform and equipment are covered, with an emphasis on specially designed paratrooper items. Camouflage uniforms were prominent among these units, with several patterns employed, and these are particularly attractive to the figure painter. Clear step-by-step instructions allow the reader to recreate these patterns in miniature with confidence and ease. This book will be of interest to all figure modellers, and to AFV modellers too, with the techniques explained easily transferrable to other scales. It covers painting, superdetailing, and conversion techniques (from simple to advanced), and key aspects of scene creation and setting, such as groundwork, balance, and composition, with projects ranging from single-figure studies to full-scale dioramas. Each chapter develops the modelling techniques in a progressive manner, as well as revealing the chronological development of Fallschirmj�ger uniforms and equipment in sequence. This highly accessible book makes use of commercially available figures, from different firms and in different materials. Jaume and Daniel's superb presentation skills are brought to the fore in this visually detailed, packed and engaging treatment of one of the most enduring figure-modelling subject areas.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"If you are looking for [a book] with full color photos describing construction and the painting process, [this book] is exactly what you need... Full color photographs detailing each part of the particular process and finished figures. There are no black and white photos to be found... [Comes] with an extensive reference and bibliography for those who wish to learn more. For wargamers who like their Osprey books full of pictures and easy to understand 'how to' instructions, the Modelling Series may have exactly the books you need!" -HMG Reviewing Stand

"Akin to Fallschirm tour guide, this book takes us to each theater and era of the Fallschirmjager, reflecting their fortunes as the war turned against Germany... Messer's Forns and Romero have presented a highly useful, informative and inspirational volume for figure modelers of Fallschirmjager, indeed useful for any figure subject. Highly recommended." -Fred Boucher, Aeroscale
