It’s a slightly old kit, I try to build this German Army Engineer unit.
The accessories like a water bottle and camping pot molds are dull. The different Dragon kit parts which I built before are better-shaped and I changed as much as possible. The top is its included parts, the bellow is probably Dragon Gen 2 series.
The working person is squatting and the soldier carrying an explosive tube.
The engineer has a flamethrower and the soldier has a land mine detector. There is no strong relation between each figure so much.
The head is like this. And this time, I tried to focus on the head painting in this way.
It’s difficult to answer which is better to paint a head separately or after jointed. When gluing together, there is a mess-up risk. And there is a possibility of the joint gap opened. I like the painted whole figure after it’s glued together except it isn’t the difficult pose to draw.
It doesn’t become stable, but I attached the handle to start a detailed painting.
I wonder it’s better than usual. I had a lot of resin heads purchased very old times. Do not use aggressively in the future unless all heads will be wasted. I’m enthusiastic about a figure building now, but I don’t know when this seal will be cool down, I’ll use the stock of nice resin head next time.
Combat engineer has been requested the considerably hard duties, including the blast of the obstacle and the search of the minefield, etc.
A soldier with an explosive cylinder, Bangalore torpedo. Gun sling is self-made.
When it was separated face parts, it looked good, when it was installed with the body, an expression is slightly relaxed. It’s not suited to the battlefield.
The mark of the helmet is good in detail. I used Tamiya’s German Soldier Decals.
Everyone rolls up their sleeves and has high morale. I think it was pretty hot because the battle of Kursk is in midsummer.
It is a pose of operating a mine detector.
I think this situation pose is rare in the plastic injection kit.
I made the connection cord of a detection stick and the device on his shoulder by myself with the metal wire. It is strange if this point is not connected.
All four soldiers are looking down and all faces are not seen well. I should have tried the painting of the face detailed a little more.
He is setting the detonator in a small explosive.
This pose is also rare, gets down on both knees, and stoops down.
It is a slightly serious atmosphere.
He is equipped with a flamethrower.
Ummm, his expression is no sense of urgency, such as the young guy that burned the weeds in the farm work…
I suppose the fuel tank will explode when receiving a fire to the tank on his back. Flamethrower’s mission is very high risk.
I think it looks sharp with the shoulder and lapel insignia marks. The face is most important, I think.
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.
