ZUNDAPP K800 VULCAN SCALE MODELS 1/35 BOX PACKAGEThough the antiaircraft tank had not been completed yet, I have started a model of military motorcycle.

ZUNDAPP K800 VULCAN SCALE MODELS 1/35 MAKINGThis kit has effective photo-etched parts and used to the best point, assembling is very fun. The etching of the wheel is excellent quality.

ZUNDAPP K800 VULCAN SCALE MODELS 1/35 MAKINGNo need to struggle with many tiny photo-etched parts. Though plastic is soft, I assembled it with caution.

ZUNDAPP K800 VULCAN SCALE MODELS 1/35 MAKINGIt’s normal quality figure. Filing and adjusting each part.

ZUNDAPP K800 VULCAN SCALE MODELS 1/35 MAKINGI revised the angle of this face parallel to the ground or a little upward if just attached them, the motorcycle soldier looked down unnaturally.

ZUNDAPP K800 VULCAN SCALE MODELS 1/35 MAKINGI don’t intend to glue figure and the seat together, it is difficult to unify with the natural pose. I had trouble to harmonize the right hand with an accelerator grip.

ZUNDAPP K800 VULCAN SCALE MODELS 1/35 MAKINGThe springs under the sheet are particularly realistic.

ZUNDAPP K800 VULCAN SCALE MODELS 1/35 MAKINGThe left side, around the emblem, became messy. The others were assembled well, though there are many small parts.

ZUNDAPP K800 VULCAN SCALE MODELS 1/35 MAKINGI only assembled it straight from the box, increased nice feeling from photo-etched parts effect. I felt nostalgic for days of primary school, I have made a similar military motorcycle model released from Tamiya.

ZUNDAPP K800 VULCAN SCALE MODELS 1/35 PAINTINGFirstly, I painted in black to test hair spray technique to the small model.

ZUNDAPP K800 VULCAN SCALE MODELS 1/35 FINISHED WORKMy Zündap military motorcycle was completed. German military mainly used BMW and Zündap motorcycles for military use in World War II.

ZUNDAPP K800 VULCAN SCALE MODELS 1/35 FINISHED WORKI tried hair spray method to this small kit, firstly blew black painted over it, painting in German gray, peeling off this gray and exposed black like rust.

ZUNDAPP K800 VULCAN SCALE MODELS 1/35 FINISHED WORKBlack and German gray is a similar color and not occurred an outstanding effect.

ZUNDAPP K800 VULCAN SCALE MODELS 1/35 FINISHED WORKThe last step is blowing flat clear but some decals have a little silvering.

ZUNDAPP K800 VULCAN SCALE MODELS 1/35 FINISHED WORKThis handle is thin and easily broken, must be careful handling.

ZUNDAPP K800 VULCAN SCALE MODELS 1/35 FINISHED WORKThe leather seat and the side trunks are painted with dark brown and black, washing and blending.

ZUNDAPP K800 VULCAN SCALE MODELS 1/35 FINISHED WORKI don’t want this much rusty, light weathering is nice, I think.

ZUNDAPP K800 VULCAN SCALE MODELS 1/35 FINISHED WORKMy target of this figure’s face is like box art but very different….. Aggressive expression. I tried to draw a blood vessel on his arm.

ZUNDAPP K800 VULCAN SCALE MODELS 1/35 FINISHED WORKOn this instruction manual, there is no comment on the gas mask case, I attached it on his back anyway. In case he is wearing the motorcycle coat as a common driver, I attached it on his chest, but this time the position is like the photo because it’s normal military uniform.

ZUNDAPP K800 VULCAN SCALE MODELS 1/35 FINISHED WORKI painted chipping on his helmet. The uniform was dry-brushed after blending some shadows.

ZUNDAPP K800 VULCAN SCALE MODELS 1/35 FINISHED WORKIt was unexpectedly hard to combine a motorcycle with this figure. Because I may want to stand only a motorcycle, the figure was only put on the saddle.

ZUNDAPP K800 VULCAN SCALE MODELS 1/35 FINISHED WORKIt is a motorcycle model, different from a tank. When it placed aside the main battle tank, a motorcycle is a supporting role. But this detailed kit has many excellent parts, has value to try to assemble.
