It has passed a little since Shilka was released from Hong Model and Meng Model. It seemed that the Dragon Models Shilka was at the bottom of my stock and waiting for the nipper. It may be difficult to build because it is too old kit now, but I try to build it.
Shilka was one that had been left untouched by halfway. The decline of motivation occurred at the time of move my house. In addition to what I was losing motivation by looking at a decal yellowish completely.
A few days ago I decided to bleach the decal with a bleaching agent and experimented it seemed to manage somehow, so the motivation for painting is now revived. When mixing undiluted and water about half and half, leaving it for about 3 minutes it got a little white like this. Since the decal itself is already dry and crisp, extreme caution is required for handling. There’s a possibility to melt by a too-long rinse it in the liquid solution.
The basic color of the Czechoslovakian army Shilka was Mr. color No.304, olive drab FS34087 70%, No.22 dark earth was 30%. I thought it was a bit different after mixing them. That’s why Russian green and dark green, Green FS34092 were mixed appropriating to make this color. I’m blowing a bright gradation. I don’t know the correct answer, bright color is easy to do washing later, so I suppose this is just fine.
It is a self-propelled vehicle of anti-aircraft machine-gun equipped deployment in the Soviet Union in 1964. It can knock down a jet fighter that radar and computer and shooting device work together. Equipped with a 4 x 23 mm anti-aircraft cannon. About 7000 in total was produced.
In the Fourth Middle East War (Yom Kippur War), the Arab side deployed and seriously damaged the Israeli fighter plane. It is a serious threat to fighter planes flying at low altitude. Because it is linked to the radar, possible to react to the speed of jet fighter. It was very useful for attack helicopters.
Czechoslovakian Army ‘s nationality mark, blue, white and red circle, I think official marking blue is on the front side and white is the upper side. I don’t know in detail and only my presumption. The Dragon Model’s old kit has been arranged the decals in the same color order left and right, whether Dragon Models was not careful about it. But I used it as it was.
Even if I do not bleach it, the yellowish decal is not much difference when after doing the heavy washing. I think that the most troublesome is the yellowish part of the clear areas of the decal margin, Marking of the Czechoslovakian army had little margin so there was no problem.
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.
