I’ve been making Object 279, reminding me that I bought this figure a long time ago. At first, I wanted to buy the Takom Object 279, but it was not sold anywhere then. The Takom product looks easy to assemble, and the attached figure is a catchy item, so it looks interesting. Ultimately, I couldn’t buy the Takom I thought was my favorite; rather, it would be enough if I made two from other manufacturers.
In those days, I bought Panda Hobby and Amusing Hobby’s Object 279 and four post-apocalyptic figures on impulse. It seems to be sold under the theme of “Stalker.” There’s the same name, “Stalker,” a PC game about the contaminated areas after the Chornobyl nuclear disaster, and there’s a movie by Tarkovsky called “Stoker.” The figures’ atmosphere is like this. I enjoyed the game a lot, but the movie “Stalker” was so boring that I fell asleep in the middle of it. If it was the same director, “Solaris” was still more interesting.
There is nothing complicated in assembling resin figures unless they are in a unique pose, so I wonder if it is a stance to enjoy painting.
All four figures have different colors, so I use many colors. It takes some time to paint.
I tried to use Aber etched parts as a strap for a firearm that I should have glued a little earlier. As usual, the Aber parts are too fine to use all the parts, so I have added details according to my skill. It may be almost done.
The resin figure assembly and painting are complete. It’s not only Evolution Miniatures, but the resin figures have high mold accuracy and are easy to paint. It was a little expensive.
Are they Russian soldiers in protection suits? It’s a lump of resin, so it’s cumbersome.
This one seems easier to move even with soldiers in the same protection suit. It has a kneepad and a zile on the backpack.
The light green gloves have an air-polluted atmosphere.
This is a hooded man armed with a shotgun. The barrel warped a little, so I thought about replacing it with a brass pipe, but it didn’t seem easy to process, so I left it as it was.
I wonder if this figure is the character of the PC game “Stoker Shadow of Chernobyl.” I don’t know because I haven’t played yet. Well, he doesn’t look like a regular soldier.
I took a photo with the completed object 279. A figure with a gas mask looks more suitable for this tank.
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.
