The mornings and evenings are getting cooler and easier to live in. The humidity is getting low, and I feel the paint is drying well. I have quite a few female soldier figures, too. Some are fantasy-like; some say she wouldn’t dress like this. The one I made this time was a female soldier in WWII of the Russian Army so I heard that there were relatively many female soldiers in the Russian Army, so I think it is a realistic category. German soldiers used to replace the heads of their Dragon kit with resin.
She is a female Russian tank crew. Was it Taisho Modeling? I’m sure there was a figure somewhere with a camisole look similar in pose, but I bought it so long ago that I couldn’t find it. I will look for it again. The WWII Soviet uniform colors are difficult, but I believe in Vallejyo and painted it.
It’s a German soldier with an anti-tank weapon in a Dragon kit. He is wearing warm clothes. This type of head with a field cap makes it difficult to photograph the face. A hat without a brim or a small brim takes good shots, though.
This one, too, used a Dragon German soldier, a helmet head fitted with a camouflage cover. A camouflage parka for fall and winter and a camouflage helmet for spring and summer were said to have been confused at the end of the war. I like natural poses like this.
This is a Russian military female sniper from Life Miniature. This mold is perfect. She’s a beautiful woman with a beautiful face, and my painting skills can’t keep up. She has such a beautiful face, but having so much makeup during a military mission is unnatural. I thought a firm face would be better because it’s a sniper, so I painted it with that in mind, but what do you think? Speaking of snipers, I was playing on an old FPS called the Sniper Elite V2 the other day, and even though I’m not good at FPS, I played hard until I got all the achievements except for mulch. It was interesting because of the achievement of punching out Hitler’s egg balls.
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.
