Box package of German Sturmpionier Kursk 1943 Dragon Models 1/35

It’s a slightly old kit, I try to build this German Army Engineer unit.

The accessories like a water bottle and camping pot molds are dull.

The accessories like a water bottle and camping pot molds are dull. The different Dragon kit parts which I built before are better shaped parts and I changed as much as possible. The top is the it included parts, the bellow is probably Dragon Gen 2 series.

The working person who is squatting and the soldier carrying an explosive tube.

engineer who has a flamethrower

The engineer who has a flamethrower and the soldier who has a land mine detector. There is no strong relation of each figure so much.

figure head painting

The head is like this. And this time, I tried to focus on the head painting in this way.

figure painting method

It’s difficult to answer which is better paint a head separately or after jointed. When gluing together, there is mess up risk. And there is a possibility of the joint gap opened. I like the painted whole figure after it’s glued together except it isn’t the difficult pose to draw.

figure body painting

It doesn’t become stable, but I attached the handle to start detailed painting.

figure face painting

I wonder it’s better than usual. I had a lot of resin heads purchased very old time. Do not use aggressively in the future unless all heads will be wasted. I’m enthusiastic about a figure building now, but I don’t know when this seal will be cool down, I’ll use the stock of nice resin head next time.

When it was separated face parts, it looked good, when it was installed with the body, an expression is slightly relaxed. It’s not suited in the battle field.

The mark of the helmet is good in detailed. I used the Tamiya’s German Soldier Decals.

Everyone rolls up their sleeves and high morale.

Everyone rolls up their sleeves and high morale. I think it was pretty hot because the battle of Kursk is in a midsummer.

operating a mine detector

It is a pose of operating a mine detector.

I think this situation pose is rare in the plastic injection kit.

connection cord of a detection stick and the device

I made the connection cord of a detection stick and the device on his shoulder by myself with the metal wire. It is strange if this point is not connected.

All four soldiers are looking downmilitary figure operating mine detector

All four soldiers are looking down and all faces are not seen well. I should have tried the painting of the face detailed a little more.

This pose is also rare, gets down on both knees, and stoops down.

It is the slightly serious atmosphere.

not serious face

Ummm, his expression is no sense of urgency, such as the young guy that burned the weeds in the farm work…..

carry fuel tank on his shoulderGerman Sturmpionier Kursk 1943

I suppose the fuel tank will explode when receiving a fire to the tank on his back. Flamethrower mission is very high risk.

I think it looks sharp with the shoulder and lapel insignia marks. The face is most important, I think.
(15-March-2016)

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.
