figure body handmade epoxy putty

Since it was a soldier transportation car, I decided to make the soldiers as many as possible. These are figures of Tamiya and Dragon, etc. There is the body with the epoxy putty and posing roughly decided to attach the hands and feet in the brass line. I aimed at disorderly atmosphere with which clothes and the headgear were mixed as around 1944.
The body should have been used not the only twisted epoxy putty, but made body size. I couldn’t take body,hands and feet’s balances well on the stage of posing adjustment.

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.
