The German Tank Commander

by Alex Castro

The German Tank Commander, ¼ Scale, Resin, produced by Francisco Verlinden and Bob Letterman from VLS; Work-in-progress by Alex Castro

The German Tanker is one of a series of historical busts made of resin that exemplifies the wonderful work done by Francisco Verlinden and Bob Letterman, VLS. I was attracted to this bust because of its directness and simplicity; the expression on the face; and the size that would allow me to showcase my technique on a close-up level. This is one of my earlier pieces that I developed my “shooting the planes” technique. This bust was also instrumental in developing one of my eye techniques where the eye is already sculptured in.
