This is the kit of an infantry figure of an Armored Division while the Normandy Invasion. I think this type of camouflage uniform is rare in the United States Armed Forces. I remember that the helmet of sergeant Sanders was camouflaged in the TV drama “Combat!”.
I think that the color designation numbers of Mr. Color are different because it is an old kit. Even if I painted with a painting order, it seems to be the feeling different entirely. I tried to based on the XF-21 Sky, Tamiya Color Acrylic.
The M1 Garland rifle. When firing the last bullet in this gun, a different sound comes out, so it’s said that an enemy sometimes finds out he’s out of ammo. Terrible… How much time can ammunition be reloaded?
The HBT camouflage uniform had been provided to some of the troops at the time of the Normandy landings but was often mistaken as an enemy because it is similar to the uniform of the German Waffen-SS.
To be frank, I thought that there were not many meanings of giving the first coat black. Because there is not a concealed power when it is the uniform of the light color, I had to paint many times. Only surfacer blowing is just good, I thought.
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.
