Yeah was going to ask
1 where did you get the bust ?
2 Is the box art blotted out by marker pen
3 or is it or does it look incorporated into the art ?

1- From a webshop in Germany called 'Der Sockelshop'.
1- Definitely
3- No, it doesn't look that way.

I already sent an e-mail to Young Miniatures asking them what is going on. Maybe it is prohibited by law to sell

things with ss-markings on it in Germany, I don't know. I understand that the box art is censored but why they censored the cap

itself remains a mystery to me.

:hmmm :idonno

Found this on the Sockelshop Website:


Dear customers,

The dispatch of models and equipment for the military model construction at our shop is in accordance with §86 StGB, which says, that the usage and the distribution of badges and signs from unconstitutional organisation are prohibited under penalty. We operate our own company with a vehement rejection of any kind of Nazi symbols and dissociate ourselves from Nazi ideas.

If you purchase our products, please note, that we are obliged to deface or remove each banned symbol such as swastikas, SS runes or other forbidden insignia to ensure this law.

If such symbols are found at the Model itself or on decals, they will be either removed or defaced by us. Usually, these "denazification" has been already done by the importers of this products, if this products are imported from abroad.

This action does not damage the product and is within the meaning of German law. To lodge a claim for compensation for this reason is excluded.

Mystery solved.

Solution not yet found

:(
