KAMPFGRUPPE PEIPER (JOACHIM PEIPER & STAFF, ARDENNES 1944) 1/35 DRAGON MODELS It is a figure of Joachim Peiper and his staff. I suppose Joachim Piper is the commander of the black leather jacket in the middle right. The photo is better looking than this package.

KAMPFGRUPPE PEIPER (JOACHIM PEIPER & STAFF, ARDENNES 1944) 1/35 DRAGON MODELS The mold of the head was not good because it is a pretty old kit, I changed the head of the Master Box that I kept long before or switch to a resin-made head.
I made it halfway and was tired, so I thought it was thrown away when moving, it was still left in the cardboard. Since I was taking pictures, I was thinking that I would make it someday by that time. I will change my mind and make a continuation. There are some other figure kits in the process of making, so may be able to introduce them one after another. If I still have motivation.

KAMPFGRUPPE PEIPER (JOACHIM PEIPER & STAFF, ARDENNES 1944) 1/35 DRAGON MODELS I blew the fresh of Tamiya acrylic with the airbrush.

Japan has just decided the next imperial era name to be “Reiwa” and there are a lot of topics. The name of this era is derived from the old Japanese classics and I like it too.

KAMPFGRUPPE PEIPER (JOACHIM PEIPER & STAFF, ARDENNES 1944) 1/35 DRAGON MODELS When I read back the black knight story of Motofumi Kobayashi from time to time, I would like to make such a figure. This book is already tattered. Maybe it is better to scan.
