It is UE Carrier which had a fine work prize of Tamiya’s 74the Patch Photo Contest in 2014.

RENAULT CARRIER UE TAMIYA 1/35 BOX PACKAGEI made Marder INI in 2007, that time I got the Bronze Prize. It was after a long absence and applied, and I felt good that the prize with such a small kit. This upload was delayed, without getting time very much, but was able to place here somehow by the end of 2014.

RENAULT CARRIER UE TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGI wonder why only this kit is attached to a pair of tweezers. Not so strong and practical. Maybe I’ll use it for sticking decals. Chassis component assembling is no problem, all the parts are very good matching each other.

RENAULT CARRIER UE TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGAfter making up the tank body like this.

RENAULT CARRIER UE TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGThe caterpillar tread is divided partially and can easily express the slack of the upper belt. This partial method is one of my favorite along with the Magic Track of the Dragon Models. I hope all models kits have the partial tread method.

RENAULT CARRIER UE TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGThe loading platform was also assembled easily.

RENAULT CARRIER UE TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGBecause there are four figures in this kit, I’m in two minds make it or not, four figures are lots of work… Because I have not yet decided it, the part of the driver and side seat leaves without adhering.

RENAULT CARRIER UE TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGThe back detail and mold are fine.

RENAULT CARRIER UE TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGI brought the tin canned milk and woody barrel from other kits. I loaded oranges and tomatoes, which I made with epoxy putty into small boxes.

RENAULT CARRIER UE TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGAs for the orange, I molded the surface with a needle. I made the tomatoes leaves and stem end with a plastic sheet. I think it’s not tank model fieldwork but very enjoyable.

RENAULT CARRIER UE TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGI blew surfacer before basic painting. These days, I don’t use surfacer without any multi-material or use much putty, after I got an opinion from oversees reader on using it by e-mail.

RENAULT CARRIER UE TAMIYA 1/35 MAKING FRENCH INFANTRYAfter all, I decided to make four figures, the spirit of Tamiya who released rare French AFV military kit is valuable. I made sling of the rifle by fishing belt weight, but the metal was too soft and was not easy to handle. There is a difficulty to handle, but use a brass belt, which is a blank space of other photo-etched parts.

RENAULT CARRIER UE TAMIYA 1/35 MAKING FRENCH INFANTRYBecause I usually get used to looking my hand, end of the finger unnatural parts stand out. It is difficult to craft the shape of holding the belt, a sling is little too thick.

RENAULT CARRIER UE TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGThe specified color of Tamiya was car XF-51, but I don’t know the color to match Creos and mixed khaki with olive-drab comparing with the box illustration.

RENAULT CARRIER UE TAMIYA 1/35 PAINTINGI painted basic color on goods loaded. The wood sticks are holding of Japanese ice bar (Popsicle).

RENAULT CARRIER UE TAMIYA 1/35 PAINTINGI remember all the parts are fixed in this process. All decals are attached.

RENAULT CARRIER UE TAMIYA 1/35 PAINTINGI mixed the basic color of French Infantry uniform with dark yellow, red-brown and orange, ratio 7:2:1.

RENAULT CARRIER UE TAMIYA 1/35 PAINTINGOn the other hand, the tank crew was indicated to paint with brown, because all the tank crew at that time in France used the leather jacket.
