It was a detailed mold figure. I built it in February 2014.
I found an interesting figure kit when dropping in at a hobby shop yesterday. This kit released several years ago, maybe 2 years? Almost of the members dressing for operation. I suppose the popularity of the WWII German Kit is very high, otherwise, this kind of maniac kit was not released. I’m one of the fans of German Tanks so bought it and beginning to assemble it immediately.
Since it could not connect with Tiger II under manufacture now, I think it’s good to show you it with one subject. I have the impression of good image as equal compared with a high-quality resin kit, maybe too much compliment?
Since he also wears a tanker jacket so he is a tank crew in fact, but the below soldier has two submachine gun magazines, which was indicated to attach to him, I choose the hand grenade. First, I think it’s not normal for the tank crew. But possibly there was also a soldier of such military uniforms who is on the armored car as it is in the box art. If it is right, the hand grenade holding situation is reasonable.
The fingertip is corrected to fit Schmeisser (submachine-gun) with putty. I think these three are a very good figure. The Dragon has released the series named “Gen2” which is the concept of very small and many parts divided and targeted to realized figure proportion, but normal kit is now good quality, in case there are high molding technique and good sculpture.
In Japan, at the end of the year, has a custom of cleaning the inside of a house finely. And a new year is greeted. Although many models not finished are in my room, but anyway, the cleaning room was finished. Please have a look succeedingly this web site next year. Enjoy modeling!!
As for the right soldier, the portion to which two belts have overlapped like a handbag and a shoulder bag is usually that’s which can adjust the length.
Since the soldier had a mold strap of sub-machine gun on the jacket. It’s not natural looking to attach with Schmeisser. I deleted the mold and remade it with thin board weight (usually used for fishing).
I painted flesh first. My rule is first painting flesh, but in case there’s a complicated area, one of the option is that painting closing or items first. I’ll consider my procedure flexibly from now on.
It seems that there were various color tones even if we said a word of Field Green. For example, near gray or beige, like the box art of this model. Tamiya’s Field Green had quite strong green, I changed a little to gray for a change.
Creos Mr. Mark Softer softening power is weak, I thought it’s not effective so much. But I found it’s good fitting even if the surface is uneven. If it begins to dry once, I could not adjust the decal position.
For the person not familiar with 1/35 figure scale, I took a photo with Zippo lighter and US dollar quarter and Japanese 100 yen coin. The height is about 55mm, (2.2 inches). Anyway, this kit is a masterpiece of injection military figure kit, mold maker had nice work, I suppose.
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.
