Maschinen Krieger SAFS repaint

A few months back I got a nice little pile of the Maschinen Krieger 1/35 scale battlesuits when Hobby Link Japan had their blowout sale. I don’t know what I thought I’d use them for, but at the prices they were asking ($5 a box was it? Can’t remember) I couldn’t resist. Anyway the pre-painted figures are very nice, but something moved me to repaint and convert one of them, so here it is.

The original pose was very static, just the figure standing there with its arms at its side, so I did some cutting and puttying to give it a more dynamic pose.

Once again I went at it with the rub on transfers. I really like these things. This shot shows the weathering.

The insignia on the shoulder plate is from an old tank model decal set.

And another front view and a close up.

I’ll probably take a closer look at the other minis I have in the MaK range at some point.

    I remember those. Back in the mid 80’s I had a catalog of these models that I used to pour over for inspiration. Unfortunately the catalog had no ordering information, and I’ve never seen one of these in real life. Heck, I don’t even remember where I got the catalog, and I’m sure it was recycled long ago. But wow, that WWIV power armor stuff was pretty cool back then.

    Thanks for cool blast from the past!
