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.
It is like an old man before being painted. Because the head has been exchanged all over, I cannot say he is Joachim Peiper. However, I did not think that the original head also looks like him.
I blew the fresh Tamiya acrylic with the airbrush. I thought that the rough surface of Tamiya acrylic was exactly good because I wanted to paint the face with oil. Oil painting cannot be drawn very well if the surface is too smooth.
Japan has just decided on 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.
Joachim Peiper, commander of Waffen-SS, ended the war and was sentenced to death for alleged involvement in the Malmedy Massacre case. After 11 years in prison, he was reduced and released. Because he was a former Nazi SS officer, after the war there were many harassments and it was a very difficult environment to live in. While living in France in 1976, somebody threw a flaming bottle at home and he died.
In the end, I did the rough work of mixing and brushing the flat base of Tamiya enamel in clear paint. It was necessary to work carefully because the flat base of Tamiya enamel remains white when one mistake is made. It is necessary to paint on unnecessary parts and runners in advance and check if it is too matte or too thick. Still, I can not trust much. It’s easy to get white if I paint thick with a brush.
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.
