It’s a plastic model figure of the self-propelled gun crew of the German army in WWII, but it can be said as an ordinary tank crew in winter uniform. I expected it to be a good figure Dragon Models…
It is unusual for the Dragon Models figures, the fitting of the body and the left and right feet is bad. As it is a winter uniform, the large size is OK.
German army marks and letters are engraved on the fuel can. It is nice.
Everyone is wearing a winter uniform. They are wearing extra layers of clothes and bundled up.
The brush painting is easier to paint when blowing a surfacer.
All heads are replaced with resin. The plastic face of this kit seems to be hard to paint.
I think that if you do lightly washing after camouflage paint finishes, the whole tone will become a proper degree with the matte condition.
I don’t think they match the situation with Neubau at all, but posing in combination with a tank is like this.
Camouflage uniform backside is snow white. Around the collar is folded and white.
Probably he doesn’t supervise the loading of ammunition, but this confident face looks like the tank commander.
It is a camouflage paint of dark green and red-brown in the beige basic paint. In addition, there are small black vertical lines, and I think it’s a considerably detailed process in the painting of German army uniforms.
It was difficult to attach the hand and Jerry can handle it. I did the chipping to the Jerry can after basic painting.
Everyone is wearing winter gloves.
If you do not peek from underneath, the tank crew expression is hard to understand at all.
I do not want to make figures of soldiers who have a sad face so much, so I wonder this expression is exactly right.
Perhaps this German self-propelled artillery crew is exactly good for Hummel, Grille, Bison, or Brummbär, etc. Unexpectedly, I don’t have a kit with 15cm howitzer AFV now. There are also cases to have other shells, but if the length of the cannon is different, it may be better to adjust the position of the arm balance.
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.
