AK Interactive 1/35 Hunting and Fishing
« on: June 06, 2024, 03:15:39 AM »
I got this kit recently:


The molding/sculpting is very good for injected plastic. I started with the bearded guy with the denim jacket and I'm doing some undercutting on the body. Just need to clean up the scrapings:



The guy's face:



Shotgun:



Drinking hunter (guns and liquor - always a good combination!):



Woman's face is at least feminine:



The soda/beer cans are in three parts:

The parts runners numbers are very similar to what MiniArt does on their product line.  Maybe a connection with MiniArt for the source of the figures?

Jeff - I agree; the sculpting looks a lot like Miniart, especially their recent civilian figure sets. I'll compare them tomorrow.

In some cultures, a drink after a successful hunt is traditional - and the guy with the hip flask has his gun back in the case/bag already.

I don't see the four figures fitting in one diorama, as shown in the box image - unless the hunters have already returned to their "base camp". One guy isn't hunting, so he keeps fishing, and the bored lady doesn't know what she is doing there anyway.

... I've heard about "bear hunting trips" where a bunch of guys actually hope they don't find a bear, so they can concentrate on chilling out, sauna, barbeque and beer. No women allowed  ;)  ;D

I wish I could get figures like this in 1/48th as I would have a use for them. They look good. :smiley:

Hi Ken.
Preiser used to make some nice "O-Guage" (very close to or actual 1/48th scale) civilian figures in a variety of poses and clothing.

The Over/Under shotgun (part 5) is indicative that beardy guy is engaged in bird hunting of a sort.

Frank,

Instead of a new or stand-alone vignette, you can add them to a pre-existing passive Zombie themed build.

A shotgun works for some mammals too, perhaps depending on your method of hunting. Up to small deer, at least. Distances must be relatively short.

They'd work nicely with some additions in a post-apoc. The guy fishing could be converted to a flak vest easily, just add webbing

I compared the AK kit with a recent Miniart kit Ukrainian Tank Crew at Rest, ICM Chernobyl #5, Evacuation and Master Box The Mohicans, which is one of their very latest releases.

I think the subcontractor for AK is ICM, not Miniart; parts layout and detailing are most like ICM's, especially since they seem to be making some of their vehicle kits. I also noticed that the Master Box kit looks an ICM kit as well. For one, the woman's face looks feminine, which is a dead giveaway.

OK, maybe in some 1st world countries. He's too thin and well dressed to be American, so you're probably right. In the US, he would just be arriving somewhere near a hunting area and he's topping off the several beers under his belt with some cheap rum or whiskey.

I to would like to get some decent civilian figures in 1/48, like back packers/hikers or  vietnamese civilians but they are non existent or hideously expensive.

O scale railway figures are approx 1/50th so you may find some skinny ones.

The hipster with the shotgun is almost ready for painting:

Fit is good; I deepened the beard and the knit cap:



The fingers and hand holding the shotgun need some work; I want to extend/modify them so they look like they're holding the shotgun like on the boxtop:



Working on Bubba and and the woman next.

The Hipster, Bubba and Party Girl with a black coat to see if there are any sections that need repair/extra work:



Hipster. Shotgun fingers are still a work in progress. The index finger fits perfectly in the trigger guard, which would not be a good idea:



Bubba:



Party girl - still needs the ponytail:

If you go hunting you will see that that's how they hold the gun >:D  A wonder there ain't more accidents.
