Neubau-Fahrzeug, a multi-turret tank that the German army developed in the first stage of tank developing battle, I think that these items are rare vehicles that I only got from a garage kit. At the time of purchase, I was glad that it was released from Cyber-Hobby that was likely to dominate the world hobby market. I hesitated to make it because it seemed valuable. Those people usually buy more than one, but recently I have been making airplanes and battleships so I can not buy tanks that much. Anyway, it is a fun kit.
Because it is a fairly large vehicle, the necessary length of the caterpillar is also considerably longer. The fitting of each part is extremely good and can be rolled easily. I can easily adjust the sagging condition of the caterpillar, the connected track system is good.
I built a Dragon Models kit after a long absence. It is a pretty sharp mold, even if there are no photo-etched parts, the OVMs, fire extinguishers and hammers, scoops, various straps, clamps, these are nice molds.
Neubau-Fahrzeug is a multi-turret tank that was developed before the opening of the Second World War. In Germany, it was forbidden to possess tanks under the restriction of the Versailles Treaty, losing World War I, and was developed under the name of a large tractor.
This is a prototype tank. Only six in total were produced. One was active in supporting the infantry as it went on Norwegian invasion and the other one was destroyed by the Soviet army tank by the operation of Barbarossa. It was severe to fight against the Soviet army, a kingdom of the tank. The armor was 20mm, the defense power was weak.
The remaining vehicles were used for propaganda video images. I think that it was a happy vehicle. The appearance seems to be strong, photogenic tank. It is exactly a paper tiger. But I like this characteristic tank.
This camouflage painting is the marking of the Norwegian invasion unit. Although there was no instruction of the pasting place of the nationality mark in the manual, perhaps this is OK. This Neubau-Fahrzeug is a German gray base, so white nationality mark suits well.
Umm, it’s incoherent weathering. The weathering interferes with the camouflage of Red-Brown, I guess it was a bit more modest. Well, Red-Brown is also a color that looks wrong as dirt… But, that is playing the role of camouflage painting properly.
The red-brown camouflage pattern is so dirty that I cannot recognize it much. Just wondering, nearby looking of the heavy weathering feels overdoing, a distance of about 50cm, it seems not so much uncomfortable.
Neubau-Fahrzeug was a type of AFV that I had never made so it was particularly fun to assemble. I could paste decals beautifully. It was more exciting as it was unusual to make it for a long time, but since Neubau-Fahrzeug injection kits are released from various manufacturers now, there are many tank modelers who have made 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.
