It is a figure of a British armored car crew. As I built the Staghound the other day, it’s a nice opportunity to try this Miniart figure kit. Since the figures are related to some vehicles, they are not made at such times, even if they have a somewhat different season and area or anything else, anyway, I will make them and arrange for the next to the Staghound armored car.
There are many burrs, and each part’s adhesive surface matching was delicate curves. Before assembly, it seems to be a mass of poorly shaped plastic, but after assembly its poses and atmosphere are good. The injection head is not as sharp mold as the Master Box, so it depends on your preference, but it will be an option to change to a resin head. This time, I have changed every head to resin heads, because painting is easy.
Currently, I don’t have any plan to make British trucks, the soldiers holding the steering wheel were changed to the relaxed pose. I’d like to complete all five figures in some way.
When I made the Vietnam War soldiers the other day, I painted them from the military uniform first and it was a tricky process, so I painted it from the skin and face this time. After all, paints from anywhere, if I make a mistake I will fix it, so the difficulty was not so changed. Much trial and error and fixing will be needed.
The British army confronted the German army again at the North African front. The British fought a deadly fight against a German army employing an excellent strategy and eventually grabbed a victory. We should not forget the activity of British and Commonwealth troops. Well, the Japanese army was on the Axis side.
I could not do my best to paint the eyes because this figure is looking through the binoculars, so instead, I tried painting with gradation and using various colors such as yellow and dark brown on his hair.
In case they have headphones or a microphone, it would be better to have an electric code, although we are using a wireless headset at the present day. I don’t know which tank to decorate, and I don’t want to get tangled, this time there is no code.
I am interested in models of tanks, airplanes, ships, military figures, I build them 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 elementary school.
From elementary school through university students repeatedly suspend and restart my modeling, it’s about 25 years of this hobby’s history.
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 me here occasionally.
