A WWII German re-enactor... and his car

int. office building

Employees are filing out of the building as one man
enters. He heads for the back to talk to the graphic artist.


You must be "Uncle Bob", welcome!

The two shake hands.


I'm not actually anybody's uncle... I don't know why they call me that.

Recently, I had the pleasure of working with Robert on a rather unique project- a vinyl graphic for the front of his mini coop. I created the outline of the German Coat of Arms Eagle and shield from an old grain sack that he had. It will be used to make a decal for the hood.

Robert, Bob for short, has worked on projects with National Geographic and the History Channel as a World War II German re-enactor. He's passionate about his work, about his German heritage, and his car.

In "Hitler's Final Days in the Bunker" he portrayed a guard whose job was to put up a good fight and die. He then played a SA guard in "Night of the Long Knives" whose job was to put up a good fight, get arrested and die. He jokes that his acting career just gets him killed. Here's a trailer that took first place at the Philadelphia film festival. Look for a close up of the first guard to be seen smoking by the fire (Bob assures me that it was an herbal cigarette.)
