STURMGESCHÜTZ III Ausf E BRONCO 1/35

STURMGESCHÜTZ III Ausf E BRONCO 1/35 BOX PACKAGE This is Bronco Models Sturmgeschutz III Ausf E. I thought there are many parts because it is a Bronco, but not so much. Bronco kits aren’t the only ones, but it’s a bad thing that the prices of multiple overseas manufacturer kits go up considerably when they are distributed in Japan. I really like the manufacturer itself.

STURMGESCHÜTZ III Ausf E BRONCO 1/35 MAKING The mold looks good. Maybe I can enjoy this kit.

STURMGESCHÜTZ III Ausf E BRONCO 1/35 MAKING The base of the turret and part of the dowel didn’t fit. I adjusted the shape and proceeded.

STURMGESCHÜTZ III Ausf E BRONCO 1/35 MAKINGThe guide ring of Type III tank series contained the same photo-etched parts also in the Dragon Models kit. Broncos are the same. Why would they stick to this point that’s barely visible after I’ve made it?

Because of the virus in Tokyo, a special warning has been issued and people are not allowed to go out (It’s not an order. It’s a request from the government.), but today the weather is good so I took a walk with my wife on the bank of Arakawa. It was beautiful weather without a cloud, and the scenery was so peaceful that I could not believe it was such a bad thing in the world.
The news I watched today introduced the tense atmosphere of the intensive care unit of a hospital, and it was impressive. I don’t want medical collapse to happen.

STURMGESCHÜTZ III Ausf E BRONCO 1/35 MAKING I covered the anti-tank gun compartment. It’s so hot that it looks like a square-faced early type of the German tanks.

STURMGESCHÜTZ III Ausf E BRONCO 1/35 MAKING It seems that this is also the same system as Dragon’s kit, assembling the fender and OVM together, and then attaching it to the body.

STURMGESCHÜTZ III Ausf E BRONCO 1/35 MAKING Even if it is a short barrel, the barrel is a metal part, so the mold is good. Plastic parts are also included, but I should choose the metal parts.

STURMGESCHÜTZ III Ausf E BRONCO 1/35 MAKINGThis kit’s connecting track is a movable type with small plastic pins inserted from both sides. It’s amazing to include such complicated tracks in the kit from the beginning. Even if it has a special jig, assembling is quite troublesome. Especially it is troublesome to insert side pins.

STURMGESCHÜTZ III Ausf E BRONCO 1/35 MAKING A movable track is the best because it can be adjusted slowly when I wind it around a tank. When I connected it, it became a little diagonal, but in the end, I could wind it normally. If I want to take the time to make it, I can choose the movable type. I was surprised that it took longer than I expected.

STURMGESCHÜTZ III Ausf E BRONCO 1/35 MAKING This time there were several photo-etched parts that bend at right angles, so I tried using the Mission Model Etchmate after a long time. It doesn’t have a good cost performance, but it’s a convenient item to use.

STURMGESCHÜTZ III Ausf E BRONCO 1/35 MAKING I managed to wind movable tracks. After that, I poured a large amount of super-glue and fix the whole thing.

STURMGESCHÜTZ III Ausf E BRONCO 1/35 MAKING The supporting part of the antenna case was a photo-etched part. It was difficult to adjust the dimensions, so I got tired of it on the way. But I managed to fix it with a lot of super-glue.

STURMGESCHÜTZ III Ausf E BRONCO 1/35 MAKING STURMGESCHÜTZ III Ausf E BRONCO 1/35 MAKING Towing ropes at the rear of a tank body. If I attach it according to the size of the assembly instruction, I feel it is short somehow. Even so, I couldn’t do it again, so I forced it to make it look better. If I just attach it, I would only put it on the engine grill, so I tried to use the attached etching parts, but it was too difficult. I added some extra work with a thin plastic sheet to fit it, I wonder if it’s structurally different. Better than nothing.

Gauze masks distributed by the Japanese government to all citizens Gauze masks distributed by the Japanese government to all citizensThe Abeno mask that is rumored on the street has arrived at my house. I don’t think it’s that small. It may shrink when washed. We still have a few masks in stock, so if we run out of stock, we will be glad to use them.

STURMGESCHÜTZ III Ausf E BRONCO 1/35 MAKING In the German tank self-propelled assault gun, the caterpillar was set up in the wrong direction once, so I have to be reviewed many times after the assembly is completed.

STURMGESCHÜTZ III Ausf E BRONCO 1/35 MAKING Maybe I should have pressed it more tightly against the sprocket wheels and the track when I took a photo from the side. I didn’t see much detail. If I’m worried after painting, I have no choice but to fill it with mud.

STURMGESCHÜTZ III Ausf E BRONCO 1/35 MAKING The photo-etched parts in this kit are thick and difficult to bend, choosing plastic parts is also a good idea.

STURMGESCHÜTZ III Ausf E BRONCO 1/35 PAINTING STURMGESCHÜTZ III Ausf E BRONCO 1/35 PAINTING I thought I contrasted it with white, but it turned gray… The paint was a bit too thin.

STURMGESCHÜTZ III Ausf E BRONCO 1/35 PAINTING Maybe I should emphasize the contrast this much.

STURMGESCHÜTZ III Ausf E BRONCO 1/35 PAINTING There are 3 colors of German gray in the latter number of Mr. Color. I mainly used 514 this time. I think the blue-gray matches well with the early German tanks. But what color is it exactly because it is undercoated and contrasted?

STURMGESCHÜTZ III Ausf E BRONCO 1/35 PAINTINGAll I have to do now is to paint the details and do weathering. But there’s still a little more work to do.

STURMGESCHÜTZ III Ausf E BRONCO 1/35 FINISHED WORK Sturmgeschutz III Ausf E is complete. This self-propelled assault gun, which carries the main artillery in a fixed combat chamber, was developed mainly to support the close combat of infantry.

STURMGESCHÜTZ III Ausf E BRONCO 1/35 FINISHED WORK STURMGESCHÜTZ III Ausf E BRONCO 1/35 FINISHED WORK Overall, I like the angular form and the unreliable antenna case. Since it is a short gun barrel, it may be an infantry support weapon. After that, the characteristics of the anti-tank weapon became stronger and the main gun was changed to long and powerful.

STURMGESCHÜTZ III Ausf E BRONCO 1/35 FINISHED WORK STURMGESCHÜTZ III Ausf E BRONCO 1/35 FINISHED WORK It’s called German gray, but it’s a little too blue.

STURMGESCHÜTZ III Ausf E BRONCO 1/35 FINISHED WORKIt is a nice point that I personally have a high evaluation that the connected track is included in the kit. Is that why the price goes up? But I can’t say for sure if track parts will directly lead to higher costs since the price is higher in the distribution process compared to the price overseas.
