I’ll make these American tank crew figures. By the way, I have not built WWII US tank after Sherman. I wonder they are fit if I arrange figures on the US track currently building. The figure who wears a tanker’s helmet is likely not matched with trucks after all.
By the way, my favorite military novelist Mr. Daisuke Sato passed away. He’s 52 years old, I am sorry he was still young. I read a lot of interesting stories, but it is almost incomplete. He died without completing many works. I also want to complete the kit as much as possible that once started to build.
I tried making the insignia data and printed it on a blank decal sheet, named “Miracle Decals” which is sold in the Japanese market. This time I used a clear type as it is hard to cut out. Even if blowing the base spray in advance, ink printing is not so good of my inkjet printer, so it will eventually be hand-drawn with a microfacet brush. Miracle decal is both good and bad points. If I paint the paste area in white in advance, the coloring may be better. Let’s try it next time.
Recently, it is a good age as not only German tank crew, but also Italian, French and Imperial Japanese tank crew and other niche items are available for injection kits. I also have a Mini-Art Italian tank crew, I would like to search for a tank which is not my stock now.
This figure is brush painted without relying on decals. The fine molds on a high-quality resin figure are easy to a paintbrush. Advanced techniques will be required to paint fine markings on a normal injection figure with a brush.
The resin figure is pretty good, but after all, the price is a little expensive. I would like to paint with spirit to the nice molded figure. This time it is a satisfactory finish for myself. Next time, I have to make a tank, I need a tank that fits this crew.
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.
