Miniart jeep crew and MP figure set. It has been stocked since about 10 years ago. I decided to make this figure set because the timing is right when I made the jeep.

I cut out 5 heads in this kit. Not bad for injection. However, even if I use a resin head this time and have some leftover, looking at the structure of these parts, I think it is difficult to match it with other figures because this head has no neck. I think it’s easier to use another head.

Since the Jeep driver is already here, I thought this driver was useless, but I had a Hobby Boss Scout Car, I decided to try to make this. After fitting it roughly, I have to open his arm with the handle to the outside a little, so I purposely made a gap and poured instant glue to fix it instead of putty.

When I looked closely at the helmet of this US soldier kit of Miniart, there was no mold for the chin strap, so I glued the bands of masking tape together. So there are no chin straps on everyone’s neck. Everyone is in a relaxed pose, so it’s not strange.

I think there are some differences between the colors of the US infantry uniforms, the colors of the mini art paint instructions, and the colors of the box art. The jacket is designated as olive drab, but in the picture, it is dark yellow or a little bit buff. I think dark yellow jumpers are OK, but what should I do with a regular jacket?

After all, it is easier to draw from the fresh color of the face. If I put off drawing figure faces, I feel like I’m putting off the burden.

My perception is that the trousers are mostly olive drab or brown, the jackets are mostly dark yellow or olive drab or dark green, and the tanker’s jackets are mostly dark yellow. In my case, I am often influenced by the box painting, so I would choose dark yellow for their jackets. I was worried. The choice of colors for military figure uniforms is an interesting part of modeling.
