Mr. Black Publications: Scale Model Handbook - WWII SPECIAL Vol.5 Sculpting & Painting your own WWII German Figures

SCULPTING & PAINTING YOUR OWN WWII GERMAN MINIATURE FIGURES IN 1/35 & 1/16 SCALES – CREATING YOUR SCENIC SETTINGS FROM SCRATCH

THE MINIATURE FIGURE ART OF LUC KLINKERS

This book shows “how to” sculpt and paint WWII period miniature figures in German uniforms, placing them in realistic scenic settings, made from scratch and providing the ultimate techniques guide.

Luc steers the modeler through the miniaturists’ magical world using detailed text with a lot of step-by-step photos to illustrate his approach and learn how to sculpt WWII German miniature figures in 1/35 and 1/16 scales, displaying them on scratch built scenery.

Inside are 250 photos, around 200 of them combined into step-by-step sequences. The book is divided into five chapters following a progressively advanced sequence from A to Z on how to sculpt miniatures. Luc reveals all his secrets and techniques gathered over his 20 years experience in the military modelling hobby where he’s sculpted more than 200 figures.

The first chapter is dedicated to tools, materials and other materials needed to sculpt miniature figures. The second covers creating a 1/35 scale three-figure vignette totally from scratch. The author uses heads, hands, boots, weapons and accessories from commercially available products combining them to create his personalized realistically posed figures. Luc makes it look easy and encourages the modeler to try his methods.

The third chapter is about sculpting and painting a German SS Grenadier at the Falaise Pocket 1944 in 1/16 scale, whereas the fourth chapter covers the creation of a 1/16 scale three-figure “action vignette” from scratch. The fifth and the final chapter presents a gallery of masterly sculpted figures that have been created over the past 20 years and were placed onto AFVs, in city or country themes, or just in small display bases.


Luc explains how to sculpt miniature figures using regular tools and materials, combining creativity and readily available commercial accessories, so each figure will have the modeler's own signature upon it. Many believe that just replacing a figure’s head will give it a different personality and progress to adding some character to a scenic base.

Study this book carefully and get out some old figures and spares that have been sitting there for years. Start with small alterations and then go further to producing conversions and scratch builds.

Special thanks are due to Luc Klnkers, Pietro Balloni, Luca Marchetti, Alex Vallejo, Fernando Vallejo, Taesung Harmms, Young B. Song, Paul Ondeck, Alessandro Balbo, Ronaldo Iezzi, Yannis Papadopoulos and last, but not least, our English Text Editor Ken Jones.
