It is a military figure of a theme like a Master Box, two Russian soldiers and two German soldiers are fighting each other. In the package, Germany soldier has rolled up the sleeves but did not in the figure.
The inside of the helmet of the Russian army was added by the thin weight for fishing, there was something like a protective putt of a black leather.
It is the only one among 4 figures, using the head in this kit. The quality is very high and it is not inferior even if it is aligned with a resin made. I reproduced the helmet’s chin strap with a brass.
Russian soldiers who are fighting at the scoop, it might have been better to put the helmet a little more deeply. Adjustment is difficult because Hornet’s resin head is quite vertically long. I think that the figure of the Master Box has a lot of small faces compared with the Dragon. I like the shallow wearing helmet because I can not see the expression as wearing a helmet deeply. Keep looking the nice mold faces.
I tried replacing it with a resin head. The original head of this kit seems a good expression of urgency. I added hair but a little failed, become a long hair.
There are situations like this when assaulting against enemy trench or battle between adjacent buildings in urban fighting. Soldiers are important for basic physical strength.
Also, even in battles at night fighting and heavy fog, there was no night vision system like the modern age, and there might have been a melee fight.
This time it’s all painted with a brush. The shade of the clothes and painting of the face is still difficult.
Germany Infantry. He has a bayonet on the rifle and is standing by for a melee fight. I tried separately sold decals on both sides of the helmet. I guess there were soldiers using a helmet with a mark in 1941.
The figure is roughly 5 cm in length. It is about the same as AA batteries.
This is also a German soldier who is attacking with a dagger. I changed his head with a strong expression resin one.
A Russian soldier who is fighting with his scoop. I was thinking that it was a pose with a feeling of dynamism like a movie Matrix. I used an iron screw in the base and implanted neodymium magnet behind his feet. Because the magnetic force is strong, it stands steadily for decorating even in the unbalanced pose.
Only this figure was original head and the rest was changed. The original has no problem at all. Maybe I did not have to replace others either. Early kits of the Dragon and all expressionless figures, it is effective. There is nothing much appreciated as a user if the mold is excellent from the beginning or expressive face.
I added a cushion on the back of the helmet and painted it in black. I made it, but it is actually dark and I cannot see much.
Perhaps it is a combination like this if you look at a package painting?
Russian soldier, I added a neodymium magnet was the most impressive for me. Personally, I like the relaxing pose, but sometimes these are also interesting. I still have some kits of a similar situation. See you soon.
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.
