Belgian Special forces (converted/scratch build figures)

I started 2 years ago with the idea to create some Belgian figures from different units and different periods.

The first one is a SF operator as a observer in the middle east.

It isn’t the best sculpt I have made, but everything is a learning process.
started with the head and helmet

At the same time I started to scratch build the FN SCAR Heavy in scale 1/10

After working a while at the body (and starting over some times)

I decided to take a shortcut and use the torso of a Young bust, instead of fighting with proportions and details, I had to change some minor things to the gear and the uniform to become a figure of a Belgian SF

This is amazing work Jan! And great painting too

That work is a real credit to you Jan- a fantastic achievement.

And you consider this not the best sculpting you have made, I guess you are right, it is almost rubbish :rofl:
