It’s a Miniart Imperial Japanese Army tank soldier set. There are five figures in total.
The parts and making manual.
The head of the kit has various expressions. The left and center are pretty good. But this time, I decided to use a resin head sold separately.
I tried to replace it with a resin head by force, but the mold of the tank cap was not removed well, so it was not suitable. Hahaha, ah… I will try to paint it to the last.
This is the pose, probably from the hatch of the turret. I think I can use it for Japanese tanks.
The other figures were successfully replaced with resin heads. The wrinkles on the uniform are also natural. I think they are cool guys.
I tried blowing the white surfacer after completing the assembly. It’s still gray. As expected, I need a tank because there are figures with unnatural poses unless I combine them with AFVs.
Now I’m painting the figure. The uniform is painted in Vallejo middle stone. There is also a color of Vallejo called WWII Japanese soldier uniform. I think the middle stone would be a better match this time.
This is a tank crew with the Japanese flag wrapped around his body.
This tank crew set all wore white gloves. The skin color was only on the face. I forgot to paint the arm of the soldier sitting cross-legged.
Compared with other countries, the number of infected people in Tokyo is extremely low. I’m afraid it’s completely covered up. No matter how much they control information, no one believes in it. To be honest, at this stage, news about Tokyo is as unreliable as news from C Country.
Five figures of the Imperial Japanese Army tank soldiers have been completed. Except for the figure with a military sword in one hand, they look like work clothes. I wonder if it’s better to draw a rank badge. It’s too small and difficult to draw, so I’ll pass this time.
The flag was written many messages on the Japanese flag wish for military fortune and survival. This is the tank soldier who wrapped this flag around his body.
The tank cap of the Imperial Japanese Army is strong enough to protect the head in the tank, and it doesn’t have high bulletproof performance.
All five of them look like they are wearing thin fabric uniforms. The figure for the southern battle line or summer season is more suitable.
I compared the size of the 100 yen coin and the Japanese Army tank soldier. I will make a Japanese tank in my stock for these tank soldiers.
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.
