Johan, Thank you. The canteen is tin. It was very heavily washed with black to take the shine off it and make it look more real. I used the examples in Eches of Glory as ref.

I'll bow to your superior knowledge on the cap pouch and blame the sculptor:D

The bayonet...... as an ex modeller you'll be able to relate to this I think. Yes, he had one, I bet you can guess the rest. I snapped it in half, glued it back together and then snapped it again, this time in two places. Sound familiar?

He's got a few cuts on his his feet and legs not very visible on these pics. It was the bare feet and skinnyness of this figure which attracted me to it and also prompted my question here about shoeless soldiers. I've seen a couple of these painted by other people and what stood out for me was niether had dirty feet or any cuts or scrapes.

Again thanks for the comments and please continue to offer critique it really is useful and I appreciate it.
