The Gen 2 series are pretty small piece parts. I had a feeling that it was too detailed and it was not good at first, but it evolved fairly compared with the figure of the early age of Dragon Models. Unfortunately, the current Dragon Models seems to be poorly focused on the military plastic model.
There are some points to fill the gap, but I assembled four figures. Small details are reproduced, and the natural poses are good. Dragon Models released a lot of good kits in the past, the instantaneous power is wonderful, I hope they don’t run out of stock with these quality kits. I think that the impact given to Tamiya and other manufacturers was great.
Ummm, after I put on the helmet to the heads, maybe I’ll not see the expression clear, even paint these faces finely. For a moment, the edge of the helmet is slightly above the eyelid, I think it’s the standard position. In such a sense, the side cap is the best to see the head expression.
The helmet, gas mask case and the camping pot are dark green, the uniform is field gray, similar color but little different colors. When I explained while showing my figure painted to my wife, I got a comment saying “I don’t understand it’s too small…
M44 field uniform is characterized by shorter hem than the former one. The quality of the uniforms in those days was deteriorating. It was inevitable because it was facing a crisis of national survival.
As infantry of the elite unit Gross Deutschland Division, I used Tamiya’s insignia decals of German soldiers for shoulder insignia and the armband. I can not read it in detail though it is GD stands for Gross Deutschland.
A pose looking forward with an assault rifle in both hands in a crouching posture. I guess the Gen2 series is not going any fashion now, but I like it. There are plenty of accessories with the kit and sometimes has bonus parts. Remaining parts should be kept. When making other old military figure kits, it is often useful.
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.
