And so it begins...
Anologue Hobbies Painting Challenge is officially on!
Well here's what I managed to get assembled to start the ball rolling:
15 Half Tracks, 3 Typhoons and a partridge in a pear tree!
Ok maybe not the partridge ;-)
One small fly in the ointment - when I unpacked the typhoons I found 3 of the under wing rocket racks were missing, so a frantic email to battlefront customer services, has 3 replacement parts zapping their way to me as we speak, through the frantic xmas courier rush! As it is I can still probably make a start on them as the rocket racks will have to go on last after I have done the invasion bands on the wings.
The half tracks are good to go, these will mount up my three platoons of grenadiers and have some for the prospective HMG platoon to have 'battle taxis' awaiting them.
I havent glued on the tops of the half tracks and will be doing them seperartely like this as I need to add the drivers inside and paint the internal seats too.
Right, off to get spray painting...
Good luck to all!
