I’ll make the Master Box figure again.

all parts of WWII Allied forces infantry & tank crew Master Box 1/35

In one runner, there are 5 figures placed efficiently. I have to take care not to lose a small part this time.

tank jacket is divided into two parts

The tank jacket is divided into two parts. Both fit well to the body and natural finish up. There are a tanker’s helmet and head without a helmet you can choose.

There are a tanker’s helmet and head without a helmet you can choose.

You can choose any of the head without beard or with a beard. The head with no beard is also excellent, so you can use it for other situations.

added the rifle sling with a thin plastic board, Master Box 1/35

Other figures were also built. They have good expressions. I added the rifle sling with a thin plastic board. I forgot to glue an ammunition pouch to the body, and a left arm was put first and didn’t fit well, adjusting needed to be hurried.

I sharpened and thinned the edge of the British helmet.

In Japan, it is said that the cat day today. Because 2 is pronounced “Ni” in Japanese, the cry of a cat is called “Nyan Nyan” in Japan. I love both the cat and the rabbit.

oil painting on the surfacer splayed area

It’s easier to paint the oil painting on the surfacer splayed area than the plastic surface. But there are lots of oil color which has no covering power. I knew the degree of covering by notice on the tubes comments of opaqueness, semitransparent and transparent, but generally the covering power is weak. It seems better to paint the base colors by lacquer or acrylic first.

Skin color and other equipment were painted with lacquer.

Skin color and other equipment were painted with lacquer. I would then finish with oil. Is easy to paint with the brush to use retarder and make them slow to dry.

sun tan color of the skin, operation in North Africa, Master Box 1/35

They are the soldiers fighting in Africa, so I’m thinking I’ll add the sun tan color of the skin a little more.

WWII Allied forces infantry & tank crew Master Box 1/35 build and painting to finish

It is the figure set of the Master Box. Figures are chosen to focus on one theme, each is independent and not seems to relate each other. First, I have to say, this is the best shot….. The following zoomed up shots look a little bit rough.

British Commonwealth soldiers and U.S. Army tank crew

They are British Commonwealth soldiers and U.S. Army tank crew.

All 5 figures are having relaxed poses.

I cared about the skin color browned by the sun.

Because this soldier had a bigger exposure of the skin, I cared about the skin color browned by the sun.

I would like to draw his eyes more detailed if I can.

He looks like an explorer of a pyramid rather than a soldier.

skin color added some reddish in black paint.

As always it seems better looking if I did a detailed drawing more. The detailed mold helps easier drawing, next time I try to build as sharp molds as possible before the painting.

This hat is not a cowboy hat, it is called slouch hat, and the Australian army’s formal equipment.

leather jacket to put over his shoulders

Is it a leather jacket to put over his shoulders? I wonder the U.S. Army had such a uniform. Maybe it’s a private property. While working on his personal property is not forbidden, I suppose.

US tank crew in North Africa.

The soldiers in North Africa are sleeve roll-up and short pants, so there are a lot of flesh-colored painting points. All 5 bodies were painted by deep color image of tan.

Master Box 1/35 military figure

Have you already seen the video of two-legged walking robot? They are talking it’s useful for accident rescue, but I felt it’s a soldier. It’s similar to the robot of the Star Wars movies. I’m afraid of the world where an unattended weapon overflows including drones. Because the dissident cannot buy the robot, a real fresh-and-blood human being will fight against robots near future, if necessary. It is dreary that only one side has a risk of death.

all the figure fixed on the wood tip display

I am interested in models of tanks, airplanes, ships, military figures, I build it little by little when I feel like it. I am also interested in the history of war. My starting is Tamiya’s Military Miniature series in the elementary school.
From elementary school through university students repeatedly suspend and restart my modeling, it’s about 25 years of this hobby’s history.
Born in February 1970, I live in Tokyo. From February 2007 I was quietly doing a site called “Miniature-Arcadia”. It is being transferred to this blog with the same name from December 2016. My update pace is uneven, but please come to see here occasionally.
