It is a kit that mixes German soldiers and Russian soldiers. I think it is pretty good, I made it in March 2015. I finished it with oil painting.
For my exercise, I try this Dragon figure kit while I’m waiting for the Alpine resin figure drying. The soldier of the German and Russian in winter equipment. German & Russian figure mixed kit is very rare.
Rough assembling was completed. Because they are all individual uniforms and equipment, I was making all four pleasantly. Dragon Models does not seem to release the new military figure product recently. I wonder they are not popular.
This soldier looks like a thin coat and is cold. Possibly it’s around the New Year of 1942. The German military of that time should have had a hard fight in the situation that the equipment was short in that severe winter.
Russian soldier Tokarev M1938 rifle and wears a coat. As for the equipment, quite older than the Russian soldier mentioned above. I can’t say all four members are handsome but individual-looking.
This time, all 4 figures are painted in oil again. The first one is German Fallschirmjäger holding submachine-gun MP-40. It’s a rare injection kit for wearing a quilting jacket. I had some washing in the quilting pattern to show up. This figure’s lively and favorable expression.
He is wearing a characteristic helmet of a special force and the feel of an elite. I added a machine-gun strap made from a small metal slip. It’s difficult to attach to a machine gun with instant glue.
I drew highlights and shadows on the coat which is very monotonous in one color field gray. Regarding the whole painting in oil, every color should be made by myself, it was difficult. But the drying time is long so I can take a lot of time to work.
He is private infantry holding Tokarev M1938 rifle (SVT-38) in both hands. I didn’t feel anything about this figure when I assembled it, after finish up, I like this expression very much, good-faith-looking.
I enjoyed the painting of every figure. All four are Caucasian and the season is hard winter that I painted all faces more whitish. This figure size is like a finger, hard to paint in detail. Tiny one stroke of the run-over brush is drastically changing the image. Next time I would like to challenge a 1/16 scale figure.
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.
