EISERNES KREUZ: Is a new line of WWII character figures developed out of a full commitment to release accurate scale renditions of real combatants.
Thorough study of period footage, photographs and documents, such as the use of original uniforms and equipment are just the beginning of a complex process involving advanced modeling techniques including 3D and casting technology. The final results speak for themselves.

The figure depicts a German paratrooper Oberfeldwebel (sergeant major) sporting the tropical clothing donned by these troops in Italy during the last phase of the war and a jump smock in splinter camouflage pattern. Interestingly, he is armed with a FG42 (G model) assault rifle, the second version of the Fallschimhägerwehr 42. These assault rifles were specially designed for paratroopers and first documented use took place during the daring rescue of Mussolini at the Gran Sasso in September 1943.
