It is the first winter fight of Operation Barbarossa, the German army invaded Russia. When it is said so, they are all wearing an overcoat, but they look light clothing. I guess it is about the same equipment as Tokyo’s winter clothes.
The infantry wearing the coat is difficult to assemble because the parts are small pieces.
A strap such as a rifle, we can use many materials like a band made of brass and masking tape, this time I’ll try to use the one that was soaked with instant glue on paper. This material is infinite, it costs almost no money.
At the beginning of the invasion of the German army, they anticipated a short-term decisive battle and started fighting almost without preparing winter equipment. In Russia’s harsh climate after late autumn, the soldier’s fighting ability had declined.
German army boots had a lot of iron hobnails, cold air ran through them and struck the toes. If there were rubber and chemical fiber climbing shoes for winter mountain that is currently being sold, it may have prevented frostbite. Infantry equipment is an important factor in keeping strength.
German forces could not capture Moscow in the first winter, forcing a long-term war. To inspire soldiers, “Medordle Winterschlacht in Osten 1941/1942” was awarded to soldiers who took part in this winter fight.
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.
