I finally realized after the assembly of the Type 61 tank, but I thought there were about 3 figures in the tank kit, but it didn’t include them. I have a kit of Finemolds Type 60 Self-propelled 106 mm Recoilless Gun and it includes two figures.
All 4 of them were wearing type 65 work clothes, and I was wondering what color to paint. I’ve just run out of creo slacker 54 khaki green the other day. I ended up using khaki green number 54. After that, I painted the face, painted the detailed equipment boots… I forgot to attach wearing the goggles! I lost my decal while I was assembling a Type 61 tank, so my motivation is a little low. But there are still many processes.
I painted the faces. I like the face of the leftmost tank soldier best. I think I’ll try to make it look like this. The other three had big eyes, so it might be better to make them narrower. But it’s so detailed that my eyes hurt.
It feels like moving his waist quickly. It might be a little strange. The reason why the pose is different from the box picture is that I thought this figure could be put on a tank, so I tried the pose without a gun, but it didn’t fit in the end.
Since it was tiresome to paint with a brush, I sprayed Mr. Creos color on the uniform this time. I thought I had done weathering and gloss adjustment, but I was wondering if it would taste better if I painted with a brush. I don’t know because it’s just a feeling. Next time I make a figure, I’ll paint it all with a brush.
In any case, this Finemolds JGSDF tank crew is a figure of the 60s, so it is very valuable. The mold is not bad, so if I have another chance, I would like to concentrate on painting a little more.
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.
