According to the instruction, required 85 tracks, in my feeling, even 84 is a little too long. Because it is hidden on the side cover and whether it is not necessary to worry too much. I wonder if it is not necessary to care about the joint tracks.
Early-morning model assembling. This kit is shining, lit up by the sunshine. I want to make a model in a room with a view overlooking the beautiful sea if possible. Unfortunately, I see an urban canal now.
There was an uneven step on the front lower body, I filled it up with putty and made it flat. Better to leave the junction mold of armor might be good. After all, this is OK because the gap was too large.
I chose a decal of the Russian Army. There were also other markings of East Germany (Deutsche Demokratische Republik; DDR) and the Soviet Union. It takes a little more time to the completion.
Sorry, maybe this is a Czech BMP.
I think we cannot say the BMP-1 is amphibious, but at least it has water navigation. There’s no screw as Volkswagen Schwimmwagen, but the BMP-1 can sail at a speed of 7km on the water by the force of the caterpillar roll.
Periscopes are everywhere. Because it is a personnel carrier, and periscopes for troops in transit, there are also pistol ports on both sides. For the operation, 3 crew is required. Also, infantry up to 8 people can be boarded.
I discussed one of the weathering methods with a modeler by chance, I don’t know how to say it in English, but it’s a technique of used aqueous paint thinned with fuel alcohol to express natural mud and dust. I have never used this technique. My way is used thinned enamel paint with pastel, thinned enamel fixed the small pastel on the surface after drying.
BMP-1 looks cool there is a sense of stability, the appearance of the vehicle height is low. Afghanistan and African countries under the influence of the former communist bloc, I have seen the white vehicle of the UN. The variations of the paint might be unexpectedly interesting.
Because I’m playing an adventure game “Life is Strange” little by little recently. This game’s theme is the time paradox, I could empathize with the main character easily. The main character is a young girl, so maybe it’s slightly unnatural and weird that a middle-aged man says empathy. Especially it is a very sad but good story from the end of Episode 3 to the beginning of Episode 4, I forced myself not to cry. I think this part is more excellent than in the last scene. There is a lot of information, so if it’s English only, it’s tight for me. I can play now a Japanese edition on Steam, and I’m thankful. Even though the main character is a cute girl, she had too many nosebleeds in many scenes…
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.
