It's like he is saying, "Hey, Wunderbar, you got a light...?"
That gave me a flashback to "The Dirty Dozen", at the chateau. Pinkney is keeping watch, when a German guard approaches him and asks him for a light. He spoke no German, so he didn't understand, "Hast du Feuer?" and the guard looked at him like he was an idiot. Great little scene in a great movie.

He needs a dog , but I don't have any .
I'll add this set the next time I ship from Scale Hobbyist :

In the meantime ,
I'll put Hilda the goat together .
She's the driver for the Doppelkonig , so she can hang with Jens until she's needed .

I'm hoping to use the circular shades in this eyeglass set to make her some snow-glasses with the side shades , or old-school welding goggles :

Great progress, Mo!
Tamiya has at least 1 set of barnyard animals in 1/35, too. It includes a German Shepherd, along with other familiar animals. It might still be in production, but I know it comes up on the secondary market (eg, eBay) often.

I thought I had a Feldgendarmerie set that had some German Shepherds in it , but evidently not .
I like that Riich set . German Shepherd are overrated ! :D


I re-did the cap insignia on Jens .
This is probably as good as it gets , cuz I can only see the issues on the computer monitor and not with my readers looking thru the magnifier .
Man , he's coated in white nano-specs LOL -- I can't see any of that at the bench .

Need to put the shadows back into the cap .


Using these Alliance decals I got years back :
