The final stage of World War II, it is a figure set on the theme of the Berlin offense. It is an old kit, three lively pose figures and the other one is wearing an overcoat in winter.
I bought this Dragon Models plastic figure model, mail order, but for some reason, it was in a plastic bag instead of a box, box art and the assembly instructions were also copied paper. I have never seen the injection plastic molding color. I hope this is not a copying product. I think that it is not an illegal copy product because it is an old and inexpensive item as a small packet of a military figure of Dragon Models.
I guess the contact points between the hand and the rifle look naturally enough without any adjustment. The work of building finger is difficult and shaping with epoxy paste is also difficult.
When I tried putting their hair on the skinheads, it became a feeling that it was too bulky as Afro haircut and bushy from the helmet.
There are 3 figures of Rupasika type field uniform. When this figure puts on the rear of a tank like a package, it seems to be realistic. Pitroca, the Soviet army’s side cap, some of the figure is wearing it.
Here is a perfect protection against cold weather. His head is warm with an Ushanka hat.
The other day, after jogging, when I was handling with the clear epoxy resin wearing only shorts, I removed the inner lid, the curing agent spilled on my thigh. After a while, I had sore red and itchy thigh. Pretty surprised. I washed my thighs in a hurry and wash my clothes. It was an unexpected trouble trying to make a clear headlight. My thigh cured in a few hours, but I have to be careful.
I blew fresh on figure faces.
For the time being, I made a Soviet army mechanized infantry set of Dragon. Four figures are included, each seems not to be so relevant. Naturally, two figures who are crouching are displayed together.
It is a standing soldier who holds PPSh-41 as a typical short machine gun of the Soviet army. This short machine gun was also called Balalaika. I think it’s possible to shoot barrage fire shooting by the drum magazines many bullets?
But this soldier has a normal magazine unlike a soldier of a crouching pose one.
Depending on the angle, it looks fighting spirit or not. This angle seems to be serious.
Because this soldier is a forwardly tilted posture and cannot be fixed unless in a diorama, I fixed it with the glue that peels off easily. His hair is growing too long, but sometimes there maybe that kind of soldiers.
I replaced all four heads, so it was easier to paint the detailed molds than the original injection kit. I shaped with my design knife for the mold of the military uniform which is not so good, and the not enough parts were shaded with paint.
I put them on the back of the SU-122 now I’m making. This assault gun may not be a very effective shielding because the AFV height is low. The one hiding behind the turret of T-34 will be best.
Mechanized infantry is an image that is a somewhat terrible strong group, but in short, it is an infantry unit with enhanced movement speed by riding in cars such as trucks and armored cars. Because it consumes gasoline quickly and requires refilling, it is a branch of the army that needs to be paid attention.
In terms of mobility, the cavalry was the central role in the past. There is a memory that Ryotaro Shiba’s “Clouds above the Hill: A Historical Novel of the Russo-Japanese War” had a story that is written on the cavalry quite a bit. I think it’s very nice novel.
Since the insignia of the Soviet army infantry can not rely on decals, I drew it with a fine brush. If I get used to it, it will be painted as well.
It is a pretty cool view when arranging two tank desants.
Soldiers who protected their homeland shouldered a red star. Soldiers painted with Mr. color aqueous hobby colors are half-gloss or gloss, so it is surprisingly difficult to adjust with gloss erasing coating later. Because I do not like the brush paint of the water paint in the first place, Tamiya SU-122 tank crew, now I’m making is planning to paint with enamel paint from the beginning. I can not figure out paint finish very much, but it is an interesting genre that I make. I do not improve figure painting forever, but it is an interesting genre to make.
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.
