Machine-gunner appeals as a production point when belt bullets are wrapped around the neck, but it was difficult to wrap this plastic band part around the neck. Is it possible to fit the photo-etched parts a little more easily? I bent it around the neck little by little and fitted it with instantaneous adhesive and pouring plastic adhesive.
A German soldier in a pose drinking a water bottle. I took care of the angles of water bottles, arms, and the soldiers’ faces. The original soldier’s face mold was not so good, so I tried replacing it with a stocked resin head.
The face is not sharp making like this figure photo, completed sample on the back of the box. What is this picture? Is it just an image or fake, or will it look real when blowing surfacer and a little shadow? A box painting sample is a reference for my painting.
The mold of the head is not good. All the same, the gray picture of the box painting is CG. I thought that figure’s head is good quality because it is Gen2 series, but when I look closely it was “Gen2 Gear”. Certainly, the mold of the accessories is quite precise. The head mold may be used a long time ago. This time I choose to exchange the other headstocks.
I built a plastic model of the German SS infantry figure. Because the SS troops are strongly related to the Nazis, there is an image of “evil”. But unlike the guard’s main duty SS, the Waffen-SS fought equal to or more than Wehrmacht on the battlefield.
Several divisions initially organized were elite troops abundant in training and practical experience. As the battlefield became disadvantaged, it had been replenished from overseas volunteers, navy, and air force, and fighting power has been lower than originally. I thought that this kit situation was still an elite unit, although it was in a stuck state in the Eastern front.
It is a pose that holds a rifle with both hands and puts a bullet. When I changed the head to a resin one, it did not look like the position was loading unless I turned it down a little more. Even though they crouch back…
A soldier who is wearing a hood in a package, I tried to transplant only the face but failed. If the shape of the face does not match, it is impossible, such as plastic surgery. I replaced it with an ordinary head.
Interestingly, a kit of different uniforms seems to have been cut out from such a uniform catalog. However, making it in parallel, it’s a bit tough to switch the mood when painting each one.
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.
