Tamiya had already released a very nice Lang kit, for now, I try to build a stock of Gunze Sangyo (GSI Creos). I think the material in this box is Dragon Models. The box picture is cool.
It has passed for five years exactly since northern Japan was attacked by a massive tsunami, the height point was greater than 40m (130 ft).
Tamiya’s caterpillar is rubber belt, It is the only reason I hesitate to purchase the Tamiya kit. This kit includes the connection type tracks and I don’t have to worry such a thing. I think Tamiya should release Type IV tank tracks of partial connection type because Tamiya is the opinion leader taking out the Military Miniature series…
The suspension module does not have the detailed chopped small parts separation, and the assembling is easy. I remember the TRISTAR IV tank’s lower assembly was difficult because of the microscopic parts.
It is my first try to draw small triangle dots this time. First of all, I made paper masking cut out the triangle shape, these were blurred and almost a failure. The next is using masking tape and paste it to the surface of the tank. It does not work very well, the triangles were blurred again? I drew a dot by a thin writing brush freehand one by one after all. I think this is early and completes beautifully. How is everyone else painting?
Jagdpanzer 70(V) Lang was an improved type of IV L48, changed a main gun to the long gun barrel and improved the firepower. It was the same main gun as the Panter tank which made an outstanding performance against T-34 and KV tank in the Kursk battle.
The predecessor of the 116 division is known as the 16th Motorized Infantry Division “Hound (Windhund) division”, advanced to the Astrakhan in the Soviet Union, is a force that had invaded the most eastward. Astrakhan Arkhangelsk line the first target of the invasion line was almost completed, before their eyes. And in France for the rest in 1944, then fought in the western front.
This Division was active until the end of the war, in the manual there was no dot, only in three -color camouflage. When a triangle dot is put on the surface, I have the atmosphere of the vehicle at the end of the war.
I had started the other models on the way, and completion was late. Though LANG is a simple form, there is a German tank atmosphere, especially in the rear upper side, looks very good vehicle. I completed it by a rather light tone experimentally this time, probably it may not be bad.
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.
