1/35 scale Tamiya MP Figure

Recommended Posts

This is the MP figure that comes in with the old Tamiya MP Harley motorcycle kit. The MP Motorcycle kit must be about 25-30 years old. This old figure is not quite up to the crispness and quality found in the more recently made figures but I always liked this figure. Back then when this kit was released this was the only US figure depicted in a class A uniform.

 

Anyway, I found, (rediscovered) this figure while moving and decided to finally, after all these years, build and paint him.

That is really cool. Very nice work on the figure paint, and on the grass too!

I got one on a little wood base, I made him a 30s MP by putting a Tamiya British helmet on him :D.
