It did not go well when I used the epoxy putty for woody part to bury the space. Adhesion to plastic was bad. Next time, I will use an usual epoxy putty even if time hangs.

1/48 military miniature series of Tamiya based pilot making

I’ll make one pilot on the wing. I used 1/48 military miniature series of Tamiya. Since this pilot wear leather jacket, I sliced down the body a little. 1/48 is too small to work!

I did the rivet strike for detail up. It was heavy work. I should have sanded with a 1500 paper sheet to smooth these rivets.

Basic construction is not good, but the riveting experience is good for the next step, I suppose. This figure is only waving his hand to a friend far away, not to do Nazis salute.

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.
