The AFV Club Stryker. I built it from April to June 2009.
It is a state-of-the-art infantry carrier vehicle of the U.S. Army. It was out of stock almost in Japan and ordered to Hong Kong at the end of last year. Ｉ received it about two months ago. It has been rolling in the corner of my room. I almost forget about it…..
The Stryker is an eight-wheel armored vehicle developed based on the Pyranja developed in Switzerland. The crew is two, and nine infantrymen can board. It can be also possible to carry in the air transport and deploy the forces all over the world.
If I used the petrol with washing too much, a dry mark might become irregularly appeared though the paint film of Humbrol is quite strong. And petrol violates the paint film to make crumples. There’s a case the wrinkle disappears after dry, but I suppose it’s a risky method.
I think we need to be careful that transparent parts of the AFV club becomes cloudy white or melt when it touches the enamel thinner. I bonded them with a transparent epoxy adhesive at the end of all steps this time. The vertical line of thin clearing parts has disappeared when a right headlight touched the epoxy adhesive…..
A whole shot with antenna is quite good-looking.
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.
