U.S. TANK CREW SET EUROPEAN THEATER TAMIYA 1/35

U.S. TANK CREW SET EUROPEAN THEATER TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGI was very surprised and happy when Tamiya released the new U.S. tank crew kit. However, while I was making various other kits, I forgot to pile it up, so I thought I would try to make it this time. This kit has 6 tank crew, amazing.

U.S. TANK CREW SET EUROPEAN THEATER TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGWhen I look at the package again, I see that there is only two tank crew in a normal posture that can be put on a tank. I think other soldiers can be put on the turret with a little modification. But it comes with a lot of extras such as an ammunition case, so I will try to assemble it normally this time. If I need it again, I can buy it and put my favorite figure on it. It is wonderful that I can buy Tamiya kits cheaply and quickly in Japan.

U.S. TANK CREW SET EUROPEAN THEATER TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGI don’t know what kind of scene it will fit, but the shape seems very good.

U.S. TANK CREW SET EUROPEAN THEATER TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGCome to think of it, I did some foolish remodeling that didn’t suit my skill, but I haven’t done it recently. Maybe it’s because I don’t make a scene model, or there are many situations and poses that have been released recently.

U.S. TANK CREW SET EUROPEAN THEATER TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGI heard that Tamiya figures are used 3D scanning in their modeling since around this time. I think wrinkles on clothes and facial expressions are realistic. It’s much easier to paint the face than the other plastic figures.

U.S. TANK CREW SET EUROPEAN THEATER TAMIYA 1/35 PAINTINGI sprayed a surfacer because it would probably fix the paint better. This figure is all plastic, though.

U.S. TANK CREW SET EUROPEAN THEATER TAMIYA 1/35 PAINTINGWell, I painted the figure uniforms. This time, I used a Vallejo model color dark yellow. I wonder if it was because the stirring was not enough and the green was emphasized too much. The soldier in the overall left a little gloss, so perhaps it was not stirring enough. The Vallejo model color is a very thick paint that is difficult to stir. There are 2 or 3 5mm stainless balls inside, but it doesn’t mix well. If it’s a 5mm ball, it might take a long time to mix well because it’s not heavy enough, a bigger metal ball might be better. I think it can fit up to 8mm.

So, in the end, I mentioned in a couple of previous articles that I could put a few metal balls in a bottle and use a lacquer mixer for nail art to mix them more reliably. It’s a little noisy.
