It is a figure set of Marshal Rommel and his staff. At first glance, the picture of the gray figure on the back of the box looks precise, but I think this is CG. The actual kit does not have a very sharp mold.
There are two generals wearing coats, including Marshal Rommel. When I assembled this type of figure for the first time, I was surprised at the parts. This kind of thing is surprisingly fun to assemble.
Well, I’m not sure if the Rommel in this injection head is similar or not. There are some spare Alpine heads, so I think I’ll change to a figure that looks a little like General Rommel with a cap on. If it is easy to paint, it doesn’t have to look like General Rommel.
I tried to change the figure set to a resin head, but it was not easy to change it just because the cap is on. It is difficult to add a design because the design is slightly different in the Waffen SS hat even though it is a national defense force. It would be easy if there was a decal, but since there are no decals available. I guess I have to write by hand.
I think dessert yellow would be good for the uniform. I think this color of Vallejo is a little reddish. It feels strange, but I may be able to adjust it a little with weathering. A little more color fading would make it look more like they’re struggling in the desert.
Too detailed class badge, this used decals. A man who seems to be Marshal Rommel has the rank badge of Marshal, the General is spreading the map, the Major General is looking at the memo, and the Colonel is holding binoculars in his hands. If you look at it this way, it looks like the brain center of the Deutsches Afrikakorps.
The person in the dark coat on the left is the highest rank. In the kit, it seems to be set as Marshal Rommel. I can’t say for sure because I changed the head, but I don’t think the original looks like it.
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.
Born in February 1970, I live in Tokyo. 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.
