  1. Outstanding in every way. Paint, figures, dirt. This is your first? Wow.

  2. Excellent result, Naoki!

  3. Fantastic, Naoki @yamanaka
    Also the way you have taken those pictures is superb, looks very realistic this way.

  4. Very 'atmospheric' look, Naoki, for the dry Italian plain. Your painting of the figures gives them a great look of individuality; I just wish Tamiya would improve their helmet shape after so many years. The Wespe in this newish release is an old but good kit made better, and you've made it even better yet with the Passion update parts. Congratulations!

  5. Great work! Pictures bring out the details of your figure work and the upgrade parts!

  6. Thank you all for such encouraging comments, which make me think more of building AFVs!
