Sapper Stormtrooper bust by Boris Kharlamov

Boris Kharlamov from Russia has sent photos of his painted version JSM Sapper Stormtrooper bust in 1/10 scale.

Boris has done a superb paint job on this subject and in a way makes the bust come alive. He changed the JSM helmet for the Young Miniatures version, then sculptured the cover over the top. I particularly like the painting of the face and the wood / metal effect on the Mauser Carbine 98 AZ, showing of cause the muzzle protector as seen on the original photo. A detail which I missed on my early 1/16th full-figure version many years ago.

1:10th Scale Italian 240 Bombarda

I wanted to share these photos from Italian model maker Polo Terzi who has created this 1/10th scale World War 1 Italian 240 Bombarda Mortar. The complete diorama is scratch-built – except for the 1:10th scale JSM German and French helmets.

I have rarely seen such a perfect model as this example. Even the Carcano rifle (wood, plastic card and brass), along with the other accessories were all hand made. The French Adrian helmet has had the emblem removed and replaced with the bomber specialty badge. The small photograph depicts Santa Barbara, the patron saint of Italian gunners.

I particularly like the poppies growing in the Austrian steel helmet…a lovely touch.

A Little French Scene

I wanted to share these wonderful photos from a German modeller and friend Maks Hof. He has converted the 1/32nd JSM French Infantryman to this little scene with many interesting items.

Another interesting 1/32nd conversion by Maks. The figure head, helmet and gas tin are JSM items.

David Lane Paints Prussian Driver

These photos speak for themselves. David Lane’s painted version of the new JSM bust – Prussian Motor Transport Corps Driver, 1915. David has painted both the original and alternative heads. The Shoulder Rat, which just sits there, his rear feet tucked under the jacket strap, does not require any fixing and can be removed if wished.

Now Released the new 1/10 Bust – Prussian Motor Transport Corps Driver, 1915

Now being released is the new JSM 1/10 Bust – Prussian Motor Transport Corps Driver, 1915. Below are a selection of 3D design pictures showing the bust with alternative heads / headdress and an optional Shoulder Rat. An odd but interesting subject of one of the lesser well-known German units – Kraftfahrer-Kompanie. A painted version will be uploaded soon and work is already in progress on the full-figure versions in the usual 1/16th, 1/32nd and 1/35th scales. Of cause many comments already coming in are suggesting it is a Steampunk character!
