It is a figure set with the theme of German army battle field medic.
The bottom of the chin is slightly plumped because the face downward, this resin head matches the situation.
Since the pillow made of straw and the head does not fit perfectly, I adjusted the gap with epoxy putty.
Wounded soldier and medic are glued to the end. The shape of the parts are strangely twisted.
Additional work with a soldier’s bandage and helmet’s strap with a thin strip of masking tape.
I airbrushed Tamiya’s acrylic before face painting. This matte surface is good for brush painting. But I felt the degree of matte condition is too strong.
The face was basically painted with oil paint, uniforms, etc. were painted with water based acrylic and enamel.
Replace the desk stand to the LED light stand is brighter than before, and the work gets faster.
I am thinking whether to make a big flag of emergency station, it is made by sticking a decal on a piece of tissue paper covered with melted putty.
After all, it is difficult to stick a decal on a tissue. Even using a softening agent, it got peeled off. In the end, I decided to stick it on a thin plastic sheet, but it still did not go very well, and eventually it was forcibly fixed with an adhesive. Previously, it worked well when I made a Japanese Marine Soldier. I wonder if the nature of the decal is slightly different.
Medic displayed the Red Cross and were doing medical care, such as treatment of injured soldiers. I think that not being a target of the enemy just because attaching a Red Cross mark.
A medic walking and give a shoulder to an injured soldier wound a bandage with the head. This medic paints the helmet white and puts the Red Cross marks in front, back, left and right. He is wearing a Red Cross armband.
I changed all four heads to resin heads, and painted the face with oil. Uniform etc. is a combination of aqueous acrylic paint and enamel paint.
A soldier who is walking with a shoulder is hard to join and is difficult to paint, but it might be interesting motif.
The injured soldier on a stretcher has no trouser belt. The front button of the uniform is fully open and the shirt is visible.
It is difficult to paint the straw pillow. I mixed yellow and dark yellow and made some gradation.
Squatting medics took something from the glove compartment and first aid. Other medical pouch and medical case are included in the kit, and designed to attach red cross decals.
Medic figures are rare. I have never made it before. I used Tamiya’s German army decal set of a belt buckle and shoulder strap etc.
Basically, medical soldiers do not have weapons, but seem to have carried handguns in the field of eastern area, Operation Barbarossa. Is it because there was a tendency that war legislation did not comply much with that war? The German army was equipped with first aid kit for each soldier and having the high technique of field emergency treatment, perhaps during the winning battle.
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.
