Well Tonight was busy, busy, busy so I really didn’t have time to do much on the tanks, but at least I managed something.
I managed to paint the tools on each and the hawsers on the Churchill
The other thing I managed was to paint the windscreens and windows on the Tilly and staff car…
I decided to do a little experiment. I painted them bright silver as an undercoat and when it was dry I went over it with a blue Contrast paint. The darker bit was a second layer, this will tone down when it dries. To be honest I am quite chuffed with the results.
I must apologise to anyone who heard a Geordie bloke swearing rather a lot this evening. It had dawned on me yesterday that I would need more dice for my tank game at the weekend. So, although I live on Shetland, I thought I would give Amazon a go and see if they could get it to me pretty quickly. They said it would be here by the 10th. That caused me a momentary wobble as the 10th would be too late as I needed….it….by…. the ….. oh Bollocks, by the 19th. For some reason I had got it into my head that the Games day was this weekend coming, in fact it is the weekend after, what is more, I made the poster to advertise it. I have been panicking all last week that I was running out of time and that somehow I had lost a week in my self imposed timetable. So I am now quite relieved that I have a bit longer to go.
I can now relax a bit, and as I am off next week it will give me a lot more time to crack on with things.
