Luftkrieg 1919 Arrow Girl Yumiko Figure Model

 

 

 

arrow girl

 

This is a resin figure made by Luftkrieg 1919.

If I had to guess I would say it's around 1/16 (?). Similar in height to other figures I've built in that scale. Overall she's 4 inches tall from her foot sole to the top of her head.

The resin is extremely detailed with no defects whatsoever in my example. I am very impressed with this model.

There are two options included for the head, and two for the right hand. I chose the hand that holds the bow. I think the other hand holds an included arrow. The other head option has her hair in a bun, which is traditional and correct, but I prefer the head with her hair down.

I chose the hand with the bow which seemed more action oriented to me as far as the pose.

I painted the entire figure with various acrylic paints with a brush. Primarily Vallejo, but also some MIG Ammo colors and Army Painter Zombie shades. I am not an expert at figures but I've been modeling for over 40 years so I can fake it pretty good. Actually I am getting into figures more and more, and this one was a joy to paint. (my favorite part).

I used CA glue to hold the few extra parts together with no issues.

Once painted I used some drybrushing, some washes, and some colored chalk to accent different areas to get the look I wanted.(Army Painter's Zombie Shader is my favorite wash so far!).

The sash around her waist is molded into the figure. I noticed many of the pictures I looked at online from other modelers had designs on the sash, usually a traditional Japanese floral pattern.

I bought my figure from a distributer hobby store. I wasn't sure if the kit was missing any decals, possibly for the sash? I emailed Luftkrieg1919 and recieved a fast and friendly response from Richard: the kit does not use decals, the patterns on the sash are hand painted by the various modelers so they vary from builder to builder.

No worries. I just wanted to be sure. I didn't think my painting skills were up to painting those flowers so I cheated. I used floral decals that women use on their fingernails LOL !

Hey, they worked very well and are inexpensive.

To finish off the bow I used a guitar string to make the draw cord. (E string, if you don't know guitars).

Overall I had a lot of fun building this kit. I had no grief or problems at all and that's the kind of modeling I like.

Plus, with the optional parts, you can build and paint the figure many different ways to your own ideas. So use your imagination.

You can buy this figure (and many others) directly from them at Luftkrieg 1919

These are the type of decals I used. Made for fingernails. They just happen to be the "right" scale for this particular figure.

I bought this assortment off Amazon, but you can get them locally as well.
