It is a Dragon’s German tank crew figure. Since I do not feel like making such a kit only when I made a German tank with many hatches. It’s exact nice timing to make it when I completed Neubau tank.
The headphone may be finished real with the photo-etched parts.
I replaced it with a resin head and planted the hair with epoxy putty.
German tank soldiers who are showing the upper body from the hatch are always cool.
Because the color of tank soldier is rose pink, it is a good accent of black tanker uniforms.
Sometimes, Dragon’s figure body is too thick chest and shoulder is too wide, this kit seems to be like that. I think that it is more interesting to have figures of various physique and height.
The French wine seized at the French front. Neubau did not match the soldier who looked out from the turret because the folded antenna was disturbing. I guess it will fit nicely with type III tanks and type IV tanks.
It became a feeling like a German local beer rather than a French red wine. I attached a gold decal anyway.
Some of the six crews were made with blond hair.
Neubau-Fahrzeug multi-turret tank has six crews, so even if placing a lot of figures on a tank, the situation is not bad. Although I thought that weathering to a color of German-Gray AFV was done too much, The combination of the black uniform tank crew looks exactly well with the tank weathering. The figure might have the effect of adapting the weathering than a single display.
I like this natural expression.
He has a pipe, so it’s better to look a little more relaxed. But during the painting of the face, it is too small, I can not afford to think about that.
Blond hair. It was a skinhead, I added his hair too much.
It is rare to make a figure of a riding-on-a-car from a turret, it was fun thinking of poses with a vehicle.
This situation is interesting. But eye contact was needed a little adjustment.
It became a finished work with plenty of cheerful posing with no feeling of sadness in general. Because it is a German army at the time of 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.
