BRITISH INFANTRY DRAGON 1/35 MAKINGThis is interesting. I don’t think all the British soldiers hung a teacup on his back. Maybe it’s an image. There were three teacups, and the inside was buried, I drilled a hole. I should quit at moderate thickness or they are damaged for so much thinner work.

BRITISH INFANTRY DRAGON 1/35 MAKINGThere is the helmet with the camouflage net and without the net. There were a mark II helmet and a mark III 3 helmet in the U.K. Mark 3 was different from the unique British troop’s helmet which is familiar. It is a little similar to the Romanian Army helmet. (The left soldier of the box picture above is marked III.)

BRITISH INFANTRY DRAGON 1/35 MAKINGI sharpened a back and a backpack little by little and improved the joint. I’ll fill the gap and reproduce the backpack belt with epoxy putty, I think that it is better looking.
