This is the kit of an infantry figure of an Armored Division while the Normandy Invasion. I think this type of the camouflage uniform is rare in the United States Armed Forces. I remember that the helmet of the sergeant Sanders was camouflaged in TV drama “Combat!”.
Small accessories are attached. It’s thin and a scoop had broken.
Although mold is not so sharp, extra parts and options heads are attached. There are antitank mine and the bazooka.
Head is like this. Some of the helmet camouflage net is with the many small flattery fabrics, which is very interesting.
All are replaced to the resin heads.
All four bodies is almost the same pose. During the patrol. Slightly stereotyped.
Mold of the scoop was poor. I molded them with my design knife.
I gave a first coat with black without learning the lesson. After all it may be ineffective.
I think that the color designation numbers of the Mr. Color are different because it is an old kit. Even if I painted with a painting order, it seems to be the feeling different entirely. I tried to based on the XF-21 Sky, Tamiya Color Acrylic.
It is a light green camouflage paint. I mixed yellow-green, field gray and white.
Part of the camouflage pattern, I have left a little gloss surface.
The third color is olive-green.
The fourth color is dessert yellow. I’m getting a pain in my eyes with many color detailed camouflage. It’s changing the cool camouflage pattern.
The last color is the red brown.
European front of World War II. It is a United States Army infantry group. I built four figures posing walk slowly. Holding Thompson M1A1 submachine gun.
Look closely, this figure wears the helmet backwards. I pulled and twisted the resin head forcibly but it’s fixed completely. It’s just as it is inevitable. It’s foolish, isn’t it?
The M1 Garland rifle. When firing the last bullet in this gun, a different sound comes out, so it’s said that an enemy sometimes finds out he’s out of ammo. Terrible…. How much time can an ammunition be reloaded?
The HBT camouflage uniform had been provided to some of the troops at the time of the Normandy landings, but was often mistaken as an enemy because it similar to the uniform of the German Waffen-SS.
It seems no longer used in the European front. It might be a good combination with the Sherman of Tarawa that I’m currently making.
M1 carbine rifle equipped.
Holding Browning automatic rifle M1918. This gun has a weight about 8kg is pretty heavy. Almost soldiers have grenades on his chest.
To be frank, I thought that there were not many meanings of giving a first coat with black. Because there is not a concealed power when it is the uniform of the light color, I had to paint many times. Only surfacer blowing is just good, I thought.
US military camouflage uniforms in the infantry that was not familiar to me. Pretty good looking When I finished them.
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.
