About this Product

This is the first book to address the subject of German Fallschirmjäger troops for the figure modeller. The major items of Fallschirmjäger uniform and equipment are covered, with an emphasis on specially designed paratrooper items. Clear step-by-step instructions allow the reader to recreate realistic figures in miniature scale with confidence and ease. Among the tutorials covered in this book are face painting, creating complex camouflage patterns, weathering clothing, and figure conversion techniques, as well as vignette and diorama settings for your figures (creating groundwork and balancing composition). The projects featured range from single-figure studies to full-scale dioramas, covering all the major periods and theatres of the war.

Biographical Note

Jaume Ortiz Forns was born in 1969. He built model tanks and planes for several years, before switching to figure modelling. He specialises in World War II German Army figures, with a particular interest in painting camouflage uniforms, and vignette design and composition. He has won several awards in various key European modelling shows. Jaume combines modelling with his job as a stage-lighting designer for theatrical shows. He lives in Barcelona, Spain. Daniel Alfonsea Romero lives in Barcelona with his wife Teresa and their daughter, Laura. He tried his hand at various modelling disciplines until finally settling on figure modelling. Through this he has developed a key interest in military uniforms and history, particularly the 19th and 20th centuries, and has compiled an extensive reference library. His present work focuses on conversions and original sculpting, plus scene composition. Daniel currently works in the Generalitat - Catalunya's autonomous government.
