So we have a couple of Airfix 25pdr and Quad kits for my North Africa ambitions. Which, with hindsight (such a wonderful thing), I might have been better going for the Italeri kit having now read some of the write ups and made a start on these kits.
Along with the kits there is a set of 3 UniPin pens 0.1mm fine line pens (red, blue and black) and a W&N Series 7 Miniature size 000.
In Other NewsThe Dak is slowly but surely coming on with the huge filling job completed and sanded off. I know that when the undercoat is applied there will be areas which look a little rough, but this is going to be a wargaming piece primarily and not a exact miniature presentation fit to grace the pages of a magazine so I'm not going to go back and refill all the little bits and bobs, then sand again and prime again. Life really is too short. If it's good from a couple of feet then that'll do. Now to mask it all up ready for a spray.
|All sanded down and the engraving redone, hopefully it wont look to bad once sprayed up.|
No progress getting the Tomahawk or Spit on the field at the moment, I need to get to a descent hobby/model shop to get some spray mattcoat which will hopefully take the sheen of them both. For now they gather dust.
|At least the gathering dust gives a matt finish|
I've already made a start on the first of the Morris Quad tractors and it seems a far more tricky kit than I was perhaps expecting, mainly due to the actual body of the thing coming in several spate pieces which need some fairly precise gluing.
|I think that's the easy bit done!!!|
