It is Tristar Panzer I. Tristar was a very good manufacturer but sorry to stop working. If there are no batting items with Dragon Models, there is a possibility that it still survived. I made it from December 2007 to January 2008.
It is an injection kit and there are indoor reproduction parts from the start. The reproduction of the gear-change and the driving compartment is of high quality. Because it was a tank for two crew, it might have been unexpectedly comfortable.
It’s the first work in 2008. Inside of the tank and the lower side of the body were painted for the time being in mat black. Maybe I’ll repaint the floor in white later, though there was no instruction in the instruction.
It starts working day of the company which I belonged to. Too fast to past holidays, very short holidays…..
By the way, the reason of why the painting was so dirty after I had painted in white in the tank, I thought it’s easier that first painting the borderline of inside and outside of the tank in black. And after that, I’ll blow in black. However, it became troublesome on the way and quit painting with a brush.
I completed Panzer I type A of the Tristar. It was developed under the pretext of the agricultural tractor, though the new weapon development was prohibited by the Treaty of Versailles after the WWI. It contributed to the development of the armored strategy of a German army very much.
It is marking of a German army that supports the Franco army at Spanish civil war. The tank number decals are shining again, I should cut the blank space of decals. Clear parts were used for front three lights, and a clear part quality feeling was able to be reproduced.
It’s negligent painting, though I said that I will beautifully paint in the tank in the making report. The vehicle structure can be understood and it is interesting though it takes time when the inside of the vehicle is assembled.
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.
