I made the figures of the German Africa Corps. All poses are with a sense of tension, such as during reconnaissance.
I added the goggles belt, helmet chin straps, and rifle strap.
Heads are replaced with the resin headset of the third party.
These figures are wet, because it is in a dry, washing with the neutral detergent before painting.
Because the left soldier puts a scoop between the belt and waist, there is only the belt of the scoop holder. I used the items which have a good mold from other kits. I think it is one of the good mold items included in the Gen2 series, which was released from Dragon Models many years ago.
This time I began to paint in an aqueous acrylic paint.
I’m worried whether it’s finished successfully.
Small equipment was painted.
Figures of the German Africa Corps were completed. Because there is an unstable pose of the figure, I tried to tack it to a piece of wood.
After replacing the lighting with the LED light bulbs, I had tired eyes because of too much brightness. Because the camera setting changes a little and I’m puzzled. It seems to get brighter as soon as I open the aperture of a camera.
Because I have taken photographs a lot when I try setting in various ways, so the generous number is up to the homepage this time.
I tried to choose the portrait photo, it has been zoomed up bigger than before. I thought that the size of the original measure was enough, even if such a photograph was big.
Only this infantry has an armband of the Afrika Korps, it’s Tamiya’s insignia decal sheet.
He has a pipe-formed explosive like the military engineer, I built it last time.
Uniforms of the German Africa Corps, according to the article, seem originally to be olive green. Cloth fades by a severe climate and changes like dark yellow, sand yellow, and a buff. Therefore, I used a dark yellow mixed with a little green.
It is always like this when compared to an AA battery.
He is a machine gunner. Because he holds spare ammunition in his other hand, it seems to be heavy.
Because I did not understand the painting of the sleeve badge, I left it as I did a dry brushing lightly.
Since the diameter of the pupil of the Japanese is about 12mm, Caucasian, German may be a little larger 13mm. It is 0.371428mm divided by 35. Well, it’s around 0.35mm or 0.4mm.
He puts a scoop on his belt.
I think it’s a quite good expression.
I imagine he is the most superior in four infantries because he has a submachine gun and also has binoculars.
Their faces are slightly long. Because all the members are good-looking, I paint them with a good feeling.
It is difficult to recognize the expression of the soldiers with helmets. So sometimes I took the photo from beneath.
He is also very good to look, there is a sense of tension.
He has a scarf around his neck to prevent the Sand of the Sahara.
I suppose the appearance improved a little when I changed heads. I used the resin heads after a long absence. Because there are various expressions, the painting process is interesting.
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.
