8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 BOX PACKAGEThe half-track in the middle of the assembly. Many figures are attached, and I think it is a realistic model.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGI have built this type of flak many times. Differentiated parts depend on the manufacturer; it’s interesting.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGIt was fully assembled easier than Dragon Models. Both sides of the sheet are not yet being adhered to in preparation for the case to match the figure.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGLike the 88mm anti-aircraft gun, this kit was one of the full-volume kits. I was able to buy it for 1,500 yen (USD15.00 at the current FX rate) by this volume at a particular time. It was a popular kit among children.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGMetal shafts are used.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGBecause a parting line was in the center of the rubber tire, I sharpened it neatly.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGI assembled these wheels without any question at that time.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGDriver’s seat assembly is completed.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGI have finished making all chassis.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGIt temporarily assembled a couple of modules.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGThe front side of the belt caterpillar is pretty good.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGIt’s an old kit of the 50th item of the Tamiya military miniature series, the backside of the caterpillar is flat and unsatisfactory.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGThe photograph which I wound the caterpillar. It may look good that put a notch between the track outside of the belt by a cutter.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGA caterpillar of Modelkasten or Friulmodel is the best, but it is in short supply, and the price is a little high.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGAfter all, I bought this Modelkasten caterpillar. Hahahaha, Ummm… higher price than the kit. Anyway, it’s a great detail.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGOh no! I have already assembled the wheels. I noticed the Modelkasten kit includes the original wheels, which perfectly fit into the tracks. It’s not fit to Tamiya’s parts. It’s very regrettable; I’ll use the belt caterpillar.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGThe width does not match, too. By the way, this belt is very strong. I pulled it steadily to increase some length but returned to the original length.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGThe bonnet, front grille, front seat, and side panels were bonded—quite tricky.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGIt’s an old kit, so there is a lot of work in deleting parting lines. The fitting of parts is a little bad, but we manage it.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGI fixed the panel on the dashboard.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGI think this face is detailed enough…

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 MAKINGI changed it for resin heads. I had to be careful not to be hurt because I used my power with a chisel and cutter in various parts.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 PAINTINGI used a high-performance primer for the belt caterpillar, which was challenging to paint. It is SOMAY-Q MICCHAKURON which I used several times in the past.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 PAINTINGI glue chairs and buttocks together and adjust them later.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 PAINTINGThere are magazine cases, canvas, and rifles.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 PAINTINGCombination with the anti-aircraft gun. It is quite a good sense of reality.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 PAINTING8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 PAINTINGThe rough painting was completed.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 PAINTINGI thought to get it wet with water after painting water-based white because the white has low concealment power, and stack coating increased. Then paint film is thicker and does not permeate to the hair spray. It does not peel off easily. Some areas of hair spray air blast might be insufficient.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 PAINTINGI cut the masking for the front window to leave a marking on the wiper.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 FINISHED WORKTamiya 8t half-track was completed. Not only the transport type but various types of half-tracks were also made.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 FINISHED WORKThis vehicle is loaded with four coaxial machine-gun and with a dreadful anti-aircraft ability. There was a similar vehicle in the US, and it was called a “meat chopper.” I had that vehicle Smart Kit before but threw it out on the way. I want to make it sometime.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 FINISHED WORKFor the caterpillar, I felt that the quality was inferior compared to the fine detail of the Bronco and the Dragon Models.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 FINISHED WORKSo I prepared a Modelkasten caterpillar; after all, it did not work. I had already assembled the original parts of the road wheels and had not recovered.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 FINISHED WORKThe folding seat on the carrier was folded.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 FINISHED WORKI wonder how much weathering and trial and error on the loading platform floor. In some areas of anti-slip molds, the white coating was peeled off a little.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 FINISHED WORKWith the balance of the wiper’s mud, I wonder if I should have done more weathering to the underbody.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 FINISHED WORKIf I could the belt caterpillar make slacking, the appearance would improve.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 FINISHED WORKI think the sense of unity with five figures is splendid.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 FINISHED WORKThe white winter camouflage is often painted in an emergency at the front; it’s said they could often tear off easily. The German gray base color would be seen at many points in the early spring.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 FINISHED WORKIt is very kind of five figures to be attached. In this case, the best match is the winter camouflage.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 FINISHED WORK8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 FINISHED WORKI focused one by one on this photo. I changed all the faces to resin heads.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 FINISHED WORK8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 FINISHED WORK 8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 FINISHED WORKI was looking through the sight seriously to focus on targets.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 FINISHED WORK 8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 FINISHED WORK 8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 FINISHED WORK 8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 FINISHED WORKThey are rifles, barrel cases, and magazine cases. There are many accessories.

8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 FINISHED WORK 8t HALF-TRACK 20mm TAMIYA 1/35 FINISHED WORKThe overall length is about 20cm, which is quite large. A significant volume is good-looking when all carriers are in an open state and five figures are placed. The Modelkasten caterpillar is in the middle of assembling, and I would like to use it for other 8t half-track kits someday.
