BRITISH TROOPS, CAEN, 1944 MASTER BOX 1/35 BUILD AND PAINTING TO FINISH

BRITISH TROOPS, CAEN, 1944 MASTER BOX 1/35 FINISHED WORK FIGURE UK

BRITISH TROOPS, CAEN, 1944 MASTER BOX 1/35 MAKINGIt is a figure of British special forces. They were active in various ways such as trying to destroy the artillery posts on the cliffs in the Normandy landfall operation. They have climbing ropes, so they can move up and down well, and they can easily accomplish tasks that ordinary infantry cannot.

BRITISH TROOPS, CAEN, 1944 MASTER BOX 1/35 MAKINGMaybe it’s because it’s an early Masterbox product, the illustration looks different from the one made recently. It is an old kit, the subject is interesting, so it seems to be sold even now.

BRITISH TROOPS, CAEN, 1944 MASTER BOX 1/35 MAKINGI bought it a long time ago and left it as it was, so when I opened it, it was a little brown oily, maybe because the mold release chemical changed color. I might have to wash it before painting.

BRITISH TROOPS, CAEN, 1944 MASTER BOX 1/35 MAKINGThe hand holding the gun is hard to adjust. The hand holding the rifle doesn’t fit well, so I shave little by little. If that doesn’t work, it might be faster to make it again with epoxy putty. As it is an early product, the quality of the plastic is not so good… A current lot of the same product may have been improved.

BRITISH TROOPS, CAEN, 1944 MASTER BOX 1/35 PAINTINGIt was hard to cut off the part of the beret and glue it to the resin head. If there is a gap, I can recreate the hair with epoxy putty to make it real. While I was making it, I felt that one of the figureheads became similar to Howard Jones, a synthesizer player and singer that was popular long ago.

BRITISH TROOPS, CAEN, 1944 MASTER BOX 1/35 PAINTINGFirst, I’ll airbrush the matte fresh…

BRITISH TROOPS, CAEN, 1944 MASTER BOX 1/35 PAINTINGUniforms and equipment are finely painted. Vallejo is easy to paint with. The other day, I ran out of the matte black bottle, so I cut it with a cutter and looked inside, and found the paint on the bottom. I wonder if the part that has not been stirred for a long time has been accumulated. It’s a waste. Like Mr. Colour, it’s easy and attractive that I don’t have to mix it with a stirring stick every time I use it. I have 2 ~ 3 metal balls in each bottle of Vallejo’s Model Color, but sometimes I wonder if they mix well when I shake them before using them. Maybe I should buy something like a test tube mixer that I often see in chemical laboratories. It’s a joke.

NAIL LACKER SHAKER FOR PLASTIC MODELINGI bought a machine called Nail Lacker Shaker, which stirred paint with an electric fine vibration. This is very good and it mixes very well with a stainless steel ball in the Vallejo paint. I think the vibration is a little uneven, but there should be no problem. It would be disappointing if it broke right away, but the price is not so bad, so I recommend it to modelers who sometimes use Vallejo, especially the Model Color series. I guess there are more people who do nail art than modelers in the world.

BRITISH TROOPS, CAEN, 1944 MASTER BOX 1/35 FINISHED WORKBritish Commands, the forerunner of SAS, famous for its British Special Forces, was formed by the order of Churchill in June 1940 during World War II. It seems that various small troops were formed by applicants such as British Army, Navy, Air Force, and foreigners from occupied areas.

BRITISH TROOPS, CAEN, 1944 MASTER BOX 1/35 FINISHED WORKLike Special Forces, there are soldiers with rope, pickaxes, and much other equipment. The figure wearing a beret looks like a special unit and is cool.

BRITISH TROOPS, CAEN, 1944 MASTER BOX 1/35 FINISHED WORK BRITISH TROOPS, CAEN, 1944 MASTER BOX 1/35 FINISHED WORKI thought the red color of the beret was cool. However, if that is the case, I think it will be the French Foreign Legion. I don’t know much about a military uniform, but it looks dark green in the British Army.

It wasn’t very precise… I think camouflage soldiers really need slings. Because it is a posture to light the partner’s cigarette by lowering the stent submachine gun from the shoulder, both hands are full, and if there is no sling, the machine gun floats in the air.

Soldiers wearing baggy pants are especially strong and good.
