Look, I've finished another model! Rather, he was finished last week and nearing completion for a few weeks before, but I wanted it to be a surprise since it was a birthday present for someone. While it wasn't completely unexpected, I hope the model makes it's new owner very happy, and I certainly enjoyed working on the him. Unfortunately, I have a second one on my desk that's destined for me, but I know from experience how much work it'll be...
As the title says, I've now finished building Downing street, which involved sculpting the windows, building a light to go between the arch of the railings, and adding the handle to the door (which unfortunately can't be seen in the picture). The model's now ready to be basecoated, and then I can finally get to painting him!
Following on from last week's post, I finished building up the back of the display base with plasticard, and I've now applied the polyfiller and sanded it smooth. Normally I'd have used green stuff for that job (like I on the Commodore's display base), but since it was such a large area I decided it be quicker and easier to go down this route instead.
Now that I've finished painting the Roman general, I've decided to do a bit more work on Churchill before I continue with the legionaries. The front of the display base was mostly finished before, so now I'm finishing off the back of it by building it up and then smoothing it flat.
My name is Chris Nelson, I'm a hobbyist. I started around eight years ago with Lord of the Rings as my first system, however I prefer painting to gaming.
