It is a Paladin self-propelled artillery built from November to December 2008. It’s my first Italeri kit.
I looked for connecting caterpillar of AFV Club. But at this time, it’s not on the market, and gave up buying it. I put the hollow with the soldering iron because it was not a satisfactory detailed caterpillar connection part on the side of a rubber caterpillar. How about the result though it is a rough way?
After all, the caterpillar has forced the tension downward in the 0.8mm brass line and showed them as having loosened. This is stronger for it is fixed from the inside. It’s unremarkable to paint in mat black. However, 155mm howitzer cannon is a powerful symbol!
I piled up the carton of the combat ration from the above-mentioned kit of Tamiya. According to the explanation of Tamiya, 12 meals for 1 carton, there are 24 kinds of menu. I hear that it is also for the vegetarian and was able to take a warm meal at any time with the chemical reaction heater.
It is a greater meal than my overtime work food!!
Paladin has the M284 39 caliber 155mm howitzer cannon and the chassis is the latest vehicle of the M109 series. The accuracy of the impact area has been improved with GPS equipment. The maximum firing range is as much as 45km to use special ammunition and the normal range is 30km.
This kind of shape polyester tank is for water and instruction indicates to paint black. But for a change, some of them I painted in sand color. I had a mistake, it’s a polyester tank, but I put the chipping rust on it.
To tell the truth, the painting of the desert specification is difficult. I think that it is difficult to adjust the adjustment of Weathering.
Ｉ enjoyed and felt refreshing to make active AFV. You can see the size in this model comparing the crew size. Its first work was in 2009 and I felt satisfied with it.
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.
