This kit is made by Wave and is in 1/20 scale, which makes it stand about 4-1/2" tall to the periscope on the back. Being a powered armor suit, there's a pilot that goes inside and the hatch on the top can be opened to show them (I opted not to do this). It's also has limited articulation and can be posed in various ways, which is cool. I textured the entire model by painting it with Tamiya Extra Thin cement, letting it soften the plastic, and then attacking it with a stippling brush I fashioned from an old round tip brush. I added some weld beads with green stuff to all the various parts attached to the body, made pipe clamps out of strips of Tamiya tape hardened with liquid super glue for the red pipe, and made some angle brackets out of strip styrene for the power pack thing on the back. For the aerial, I used part of a Tamiya 1/35 scale M4 Sherman aerial mount with a piece of steel wire for the antenna. For painting, I wanted a worn, lived-in look to the paint so decided to go with hairspray chipping. After a black primer, I gave everything a coat of Vallejo Metal Color Steel to simulate the base material (cast steel). I applied hairspray and then a layer of red oxide "primer" using AK Interactive Rotbraun (AK717), then another layer of hairspray, then the main armor color using AK Interactive RAL 7028 Dunkelgelb aus.44 (AK714), another coat of hairspray, and then Tamiya IJN Grey (XF-75) for the countershaded camouflage before chipping everything. I added the decals and used a hobby knife to damage a few of them if they were placed on chipped paint. I added a basic pin wash with some enamels before sealing it in with matte varnish and going to town with various oil paints using a technique called oil paint rendering. I finished it off by giving the exhaust a rusted effect using some pigments and acrylic matte medium. Comments and criticism is welcome as always!
Hello. I would like to present to you my new project. It is series of Maschinen Krieger from Hasegawa. The model is illuminated and the battery is hidden in the base. This time it's winter scenery. So enjoy the pictures. Cheers Mike
Hello This is my first modelling post here "Snowman" is my latest completed model. This is a powered armour (S.A.F.S.) from Sci-Fi fiction "Maschinen Krieger" created by Japanese artist Mr.Kow Yokoyama. Snowman is one of the famous S.A.F.S. schemes in the story. The model was painted by Vallejo and MIG Ammo acrylic color, plus some MIG enamel wash and weathering products. The pilot I was trying to paint a African skin tone... not sure can you guys find it out? The last image I put my other figure aside to show the contrast of the skin color.
LUM-168 Camel Luna Tactical Reconnaissance Machine Hasegawa 1/20 This was my first and, as yet, only Maschinen Krieger kit, built back in March for an Airfix Model World article, but never published. A very nice kit but a right pain to build as it's so big and the articulated legs can't really hold it's weight. I'm not that happy with the splinter camo scheme as it's a bit too dark. It went through two earlier schemes and was stripped back to plastic both times as I couldn't decide what direction to go with it. All in all, I was glad to get it done and off the bench. The cockpit detail is effectively obscured when it's in place so here's a few shots from the build Thanks for looking Andy
Good day to everyone. First of all, I apologize for my English. I bought this set in February 2013. I saw a very unusual kit on the site hlj.com and I ordered it immediately. This is 1/20 scale model, it is a large size, especially in height. I would like to warn those who will buy - you will need shelf more than 25cm tall Kit itself is of the excellent quality, all parts fit together without fitting, many of the details do not require glue and remain mobile.
