Alpine Miniatures announced a new 1/16 scale figure to be released in February 2011:
US BAR Gunner

The figure was sculpted by Ebroin (who sculpted some busts for Young Miniatures) and painted by Ernesto Reyes. The official release will be published in a week or two as soon as Taesung receives the boxart pics of his upcoming 1/35 scale WW2 US GI figures from Man-Jin Kim. So, stay tuned for more information...

Looks awsome! I like it most from all Alpine 1/16 releases

I agree Marcin, This figure looks extremely well detailed in the creases in the sculpting of the uniform in the legs and by the look s of it 2 heads, well worth the money. Alpine do extremely great looking figures and Alpine would really go leaps and bounds ahead if they can incorporate the range of figures they do in with military vehicles . Ie: sitting/standing on vehicles or posed within the vehicle, 1/35th or 1/16th Thanks Alpine Michael

I agree, I love this one... it reminds me of an old Warriors 1/35 scale figure that I have: I guess both sculptors used the same photo for inspiration. Mario

Hello Gents Thank you all for the kind words! This figure and other similar ones are indeed inspired by an actual WW2 photo of a soldier from 29th Infantry Division taken in early 1945 right after a fierce battle in a German town.
