Tomytec Machinami Collection 5


I like this series as the size of the building is big so you can use them not just with your 1/144 kits, but also with the 1/144 Gundam figures. As you can see from the picture on the left, they are very useful if you want to build a Gundam diorama. More pictures can be found here.

And the answer to yesterday's question. Yes, it's a Chieftain Mk 5. Seems not a difficult question. Anyway, the kit is far from finished as there are quite a few bubbles so a lot of work need to be done.

It looks the gun is a bit too long. I haven't compared to the data so just looking at it, the gun seems too long to me. Whay do you think?

I think you may need to trim the end of the barrel... I am not sure what that pointy bit on the end is doing!!?

also the angle and perspective of the photograph of your kit does not help. maybe a side and front view?

The Chieftain gun looks really weird after looking at the pictures. It's also bended so I need to straighten it first. The tip of the gun may be some resin left of from the mold. I will cut it off as mentioned. Anyway, lots of work.

Robert, I like these little building very much. I just put them together for a shot so it's not a real diorama. I think it will be fun to actually make one with the Gundam figure and some 1/144 tanks. Project 2007?
