It is a German tank crew made of resin. I finished with oil painting. I built it in June 2015.
This is the Alpine tank crew with excellent shape and sharp mold. Two armored division officers wearing winter uniforms. All the time I kept on hand this Alpine figure, but that’s no progress skills at all, I’ll try to finish now.
Now I’m painting their faces. The right officer, a gloss of the riders leather jacket is very nice, but it’s not a leather jacket, I suppose. Finally, I have to adjust between the gloss and matt.
The figure itself is fine to mold, but the sample photo does not cover everything in detail. We should refer to other documents or photo for what color should be used. I need to care not to overlook the fine mold, such as the mark of the sleeves and rank insignia on their collar.
I set them beside the King Tiger which I made before. The crew’s expression is fearless and handsome, matched with the strong tank. Because they were in a cold place, I painted their faces a little bit pale finished.
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.
