This figure includes originaly a MG42 but I was unable to have one so I use a MG34. Then this goes custom. The equipment was weathered and repainted to look more realistic. including the MG34. He uses a Parka known as "Kharkov Parka" because it was first used by the Waffen SS Division around the Kharkov area. The helmet was painted with snow camouflage. Its a WIP so it will be updated.

WIP Custom 1/6 Scale SS-Hauptsturmführer - Wilhelm

This is the body of Generalfieldmarshall Wilhelm Keitel from DID Corporation. It doesnt really look like Wilhelm Keitel but is a nice figure. I custom it because I dont have the full uniform and equipment so it becames the Wilhelm a Waffen SS-Hauptsturmführer (Hauptmann - Captain) - Panzergrenadier.

Is a Work in Progress made with spare uniform parts and equipment so maybe will be updated in the near future. The body is DID overcoat and belt is also DID. The Helmet is Ultimate Soldier like the boots (both repainted by me). The trousers are Geyper Man and the pistol holster and the Zeltbahn is from Dragon.

The Ultimate Soldier helmet has a new strap made by me.

The collar badges are scratchbuild by me using printed paper and printed cuts of parts to give a 3D apearance.

Here goes some pictures (updated in 22/10/2017):
