Military Modelling

Having completed my 28mm tribute to Rum, Sodemy and the Lash, I’ve set myself something slightly bigger for my next challenge:

54mm anyone? Brings back memories of Airfix multiparts and strips of paper for slings, cross-belts and horse-furniture (for the more grey-haired amongst us!)

Erg, still got some of those Airfix kits in the attic somewhere ....but those look more interesting
 
Sitrep on the Chieftain and Challenger, no change from last report except I have finished and painted the tracks.

I will be taking an enforced break from model making for a while given the operation on my hand is due at 0700 tomorrow morning, Mrs 06 does agree that model making should be good therapy (why she should know I don't know as she was a loggie).
There may be an opportunity to acquire one or two models for future construction with approval rather than criticism. I will keep you informed.

Best of luck with the op, and we'll all be waiting on the updates

Needs to be flat coated then the touching up, markings and weathering can begin

someone a way back posted a pic of some aircraft bases showing a panned blurr to show movement, well they also do armour bases too, here's my choice from their list of many, they do something similar with other nations flags. This one's right for our two cold war icons. Next up, a glass case for it. (www.coastalkits.co.uk)
 
Thanks for the concerns over my hand all went well this morning. Am now back at home managing to burn through all the brownie points I have earned in nearly 30 years of marriage as I am being waited on by Mrs06.

Edited to add a photo of said hand as this is Arrse and without pictures it didn't happen.
 
To make sure he pulls through of course.
Arrrgh! For the love of God, someone put him out of my misery! That was truly terrible.
