Airfix DAK - NCO and Private

This was my first attempt to paint DAK uniforms. The figures comes from the Airfix Set A01711 WWII Afrika Korps. As it was only intended as a painting study, I have chosen not to remove the mould lines from the figures. Thes bases are again 5 cent coins. On the photos I see some areas I have to rework.

The Private








The NCO







Both together








With this in mind...
