German Warriors 1940-41 Dragon 1/35


It was a detailed mold figure. I built it in February 2014.

GERMAN WARRIORS DRAGON 1/35 BOX PACKAGEI found an interesting figure kit when dropping in at a hobby shop yesterday. This kit was released several years ago, maybe two years? Almost all of the members dressed for the operation. I suppose the popularity of the WWII German Kit is very high; otherwise, this maniac kit was not released. I’m one of the fans of German Tanks, so I bought it and began to assemble it immediately.
Since it cannot connect with Tiger II under manufacture now, I think it’s good to show it to you with one subject. I think a good image equals a high-quality resin kit, maybe too much compliment?

GERMAN WARRIORS DRAGON 1/35 MAKINGIt looks sharp mold and is easy to assemble.

GERMAN WARRIORS DRAGON 1/35 MAKINGFirst, I think it’s not typical for the tank crew. But possibly there was also a soldier of such military uniforms who is on the armored car as it is in the box art. Since he also wears a tanker jacket, he is a tank crew, but the below soldier has two submachine gun magazines, which were indicated to attach to him; I chose the hand grenade. If it is right, the hand grenade holding situation is reasonable.

GERMAN WARRIORS DRAGON 1/35 MAKINGThe fingertip is corrected to fit Schmeisser (submachine gun) with putty. I think these three are outstanding figures. The Dragon has released the series “Gen2,” which is the concept of tiny and many parts divided and targeted to realize figure proportion. Still, the standard kit is now good quality, in case there are high molding techniques and good sculpture.
At the end of the year, Japan has a custom of finely cleaning the inside of a house. And a new year is greeted. Although many models are not finished in my room, the cleaning room was finished anyway. Please have a look succeedingly this website for next year. Enjoy modeling!!

GERMAN WARRIORS DRAGON 1/35 MAKINGThe two remaining figures are assembly. The part of the jacket hungering on the shoulder of one side is exquisite.

GERMAN WARRIORS DRAGON 1/35 MAKINGBefore I made the German winter infantries with Steyr 7.5cm Pak 40/4 auf RSO, that time it was challenging to assemble coat-wearing figures, but this time not so difficult. Some parts I fixed some with putty.

GERMAN WARRIORS DRAGON 1/35 MAKINGHe will be ready to fight soon. Since the shovel and the bayonet had not become one mold, joining them was weird, so once deleted and corrected with putty.

GERMAN WARRIORS DRAGON 1/35 MAKINGAs for the right soldier, the portion to which two belts have overlapped, like a handbag and a shoulder bag, is usually that which can adjust the length.
Since the soldier had a mold strap of a submachine gun on the jacket, it’s not natural looking to attach with Schmeisser. I deleted the mold and remade it with a thin board weight (usually used for fishing).

GERMAN WARRIORS DRAGON 1/35 PAINTINGI just blew the surfacer on the whole.

GERMAN WARRIORS DRAGON 1/35 PAINTINGI painted flesh first. My rule is first to paint flesh, but if there’s a complicated area, one of the options is to paint closing or items first. I’ll consider my procedure flexibly from now on.

GERMAN WARRIORS DRAGON 1/35 PAINTINGThere were various color tones, even if we said a word of Field Green. For example, near gray or beige, like the box art of this model. Tamiya’s Field Green had quite strong green; I changed it slightly to gray for a change.

GERMAN WARRIORS DRAGON 1/35 FINISHED PHOTOMaybe I should have chosen the SS armband. I’m not sure, but the Panzergrenadier Division Grossdeutschland was not Waffen-SS. I changed the badge to Wehrmacht; the original mold was SS.

GERMAN WARRIORS DRAGON 1/35 FINISHED PHOTOThe black uniform is almost changeless and has no impressiveness; there are accents of the second-class iron cross badge and rank insignia.

GERMAN WARRIORS DRAGON 1/35 FINISHED PHOTOSince it is scorched in Tokyo, the enamel color gets dry immediately, and blending paint colors is difficult.

GERMAN WARRIORS DRAGON 1/35 FINISHED PHOTOI painted a face with an enamel color and mixed it with oil paint.

GERMAN WARRIORS DRAGON 1/35 FINISHED PHOTOFive figures, I made them. The color of hair and pupil was changed to blue, green, and brown, with some variation.

GERMAN WARRIORS DRAGON 1/35 FINISHED PHOTOThe hair painting, yellow, brown, and black, were mixed for blond hair and that shadow.

GERMAN WARRIORS DRAGON 1/35 FINISHED PHOTOFigure making and painting are complicated and take a lot of time. More research and trial and error will be needed to seek a painting method.

GERMAN WARRIORS DRAGON 1/35 FINISHED PHOTOFor the person unfamiliar with the 1/35 figure scale, I took a photo with a Zippo lighter, a US dollar quarter, and a Japanese 100 yen coin. The height is about 55mm, (2.2 inches). Anyway, this kit is a masterpiece of injection military figure kit, mold maker had excellent work, I suppose.
