Maschinen Krieger SAFS repaint

Posted in Minis with tags , , on July 2, 2009 by stingersix

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.
