AIRFIX JAPANESE SOLDIER & PACK HORSE 1/72.
Again being a bone idle git, I am posting some of my older work.The reason for this is I am having to do some 1/1 scale painting so you might have to suffer some more of the "Vintage" stuff.So if you have seen it before I am sorry, if not I hope you enjoy it.
I did a bit modifying on the harness with some green stuff and filled it out with some spare shovels and pickaxes that I got with the set that I had to go out and buy (Cheers again Peter) because I liked the look of it.
I am still yet to get around to building the hut that comes with it, it does look quite useful.
The base is from Games workshop, I got it in a set of about twenty different sizes or so.I have pimped it up a bit with some Silfor grass here and there and trimmed it down a bit.It was beginning to look a bit like my own garden that or one of the members of "ZZ TOP".
I am quite chuffed with the out come and colour of the uniform.This dio was my third attempt at getting the uniform right.My first go was using Vallejos Japanese uniform paint, it does not do what it says's on the tin!!!!The next one was too light (sounds like the Goldie locks and the three bloody bears).But this one is just right.
I will post the others soon so you can see what I am waffling on about.
