GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 BOX PACKAGEThough I was looking forward to a lucky bag of a FUJIMI model at New Year, there seem to be no sale schedules for the New Year’s in 2016, and it’s very regrettable. Though stock increased, I wanted to buy it this year. Anyway, the person concerned with FUJIMI seems to rest sufficiently at the New Year’s holiday.
I had stocked this Trumpeter Germany army artillery set for five years. I built the heavy howitzer the other day, so I have begun to make this one. The figure set price has been rising recently, how about the quality.

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 MAKINGThe mold is not clear carving. I improve a little if I sharpen it with a design knife here and there. Because the hollow around eyes is emphasized as for the molding of the face, I wonder it is easy to paint.

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 MAKINGI have a pain in my throat from yesterday, and both the nose and the eyes have a bad condition. Possibly does cedar pollen fly now? The person with hay fever may get a symptom early this year because Japan is warm. The filing of the howitzer shell, it takes time because there are many numbers and size is very small.

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 MAKINGThough the mass production of the shell was already experienced at the last German howitzer kit, a further number is attached to this kit… It can be said it is the equal volume as the figures. Interestingly, there are four kinds of shells.

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 MAKINGEverybody except the commander does not attach a water bottle and a duffle bag, the personal thing including the ammunition pouch. They seem to be light clothes for not disturbing the operation of a gun.

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 MAKINGThis is the soldier who holds a shell and holding his ears to protect from the air blast of the explosion. I had a dull mold impression when I built the Trumpeter’s modern American infantry before. Maybe this manufacturer’s figure is like that quality. Although, I like the Trumpeter models of AFV and aircraft kits for the sharp mold.

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 MAKINGI think I’ll draw the base of a shell having a gold belt. AFV Club package was certainly like that, but I’m not sure whether this is the correct answer.

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 MAKINGNow I’m attaching the string of a helmet and gap covering with the putty.

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 FINISHED WORKAt first, I blew all colors by airbrush, now drawing the detailed parts and all the surface was repainted in oil painting at all.

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 FINISHED WORKThe loading stick looks very good.

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 FINISHED WORKThough the painting of the face is difficult, the round seal of the cap is more difficult which is small rounds of black white and red.

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 FINISHED WORKI felt it’s fresh that the soldier who took off a jacket and a belt, it’s a rare motif.

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 FINISHED WORKIt is a soldier holding a shell. This soldier does not put the hem of the pants in his boots. It’s like wearing jeans.

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 FINISHED WORKI drew a little rusty on his helmet.

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 FINISHED WORKAfter all the mold of the face is important. I think this is also good, but it’s difficult to paint.

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 FINISHED WORKIt is a soldier holding a canister. This figure’s parts component was a lot and tiny.

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 FINISHED WORKThey worked on the ground, so I attached mud and dirt on the crew’s boots and pants.

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 FINISHED WORKThere are a lot of mats to put the shells. This is the soft material like the rubber caterpillar of Dragon Models. The mold is real.

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 FINISHED WORKThere is a sense of reality very much in this way when I pile it up and display it.

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 FINISHED WORKThis soldier will protect his ears from a blast. It seems to run away from a howitzer.

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 FINISHED WORKThe figure is lightly dressed, wearing a work shirt and pants.

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 FINISHED WORKThese six figures, this one is a comparatively nice painting of the face, since it is the pause which looked down and expression is invisible.

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 FINISHED WORKThough I do not fit this figure to the measurement device of the howitzer perfectly, I think it’s matched to the howitzer.

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 FINISHED WORKThis kit is hollow-eyed, and it’s very difficult to paint. It is enough just to make a black shadow. It is easier to paint the Dragon Models figure.

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 FINISHED WORKHe’s an artilleryman, so the shoulder insignia was trimmed in the red line.

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 FINISHED WORKThough I wanted to put the shadow, there is a place which has just black dirt.

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 FINISHED WORKEven if a uniform was splayed by airbrush, I had to retouch the details. It’s difficult to make the same color in oil painting.

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 FINISHED WORKMy painting method, I feel that something is wrong fundamentally. I will think a little more.

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 FINISHED WORKWhen it’s joined with the heavy howitzer, it’s vivid.

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 FINISHED WORKThe appearances will be better when I make the ground. But in fact, I’m not interested in a diorama for the moment. I like seeing the work of other modeler diorama works.

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 FINISHED WORKChange the layout a bit from a different angle.

GERMAN HOWITZER 15cm sFH18 GUN CREW TRUMPETER 1/35 FINISHED WORKThe figures are needed much effort. Many accessories rather than a figure were made this time, so I paid attention not to lose a small part. Only a cannon is cool, but I think such one is also fascinating.
