SS artillery officer
This is the more easy approach of sculpting. In fact I skipped the very difficult and time consuming "establishing the right pose" stage. The story is very simple. Take a plastic figure. Scrape off all the detail with a knife or use a motor tool, until you end up with a naked figure. After that it's just a walk in the park :-)!! I chose a very old tamiya figure from the sixties. Underneath the ugly, lumpy details a perfect naked figure, with a fine pose is hidden. This figure is from the crew that comes with the old 88 flak kit. You really should try this!!.
