Airfix - German Infantry Fig.1

       A long time a go, in my mind, I had a plan.  Since my painting skill reach an acceptable ( me) level,
I wanted to paint again all the ,1:32 ,Airfix and Matchbox figures of WW2 period (..and then the other issues also..) for my collection. I will try to achieve the best historical accuracy for the insignia and uniform colors and of course, every comment or correction is accepted and welcomed!
      Unfortunately, due to lack of time , I can no logger have mass paintings so this project will be completed
figure by figure. Also, this project will go on along the other projects I'm currently running so it will be a long time procedure.
      I've started this long journey with a group of Airfix figures that are the most common and famous among
the Airfix issues. Of course is the "German Infantry" set .

     To begin with this set I 've chosen the Officer figure. The insignia is for a German "Field Captain" .
     To paint these figures I will use the uniform colours from the Early WW2 years. I got a lot of help by
Osprey "Men at War 16" and "Men at Arms 311" magazines that are trusted and detailed enough in colors
and in equipment also.A lot of pictures found in several sites completed the vital information.

    Enjoy the pictures below from different sides of the figure.

 Below you can see one photo of German officers in Paris at 1940.
