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.

  1. All coming along nicely! The blue shade works well on those windows – I sometimes find I need to change window shading occasionally depending on the basic vehicle colour, but you’ve got these spot in as far as I’m concerned! Hopefully you’ll have some time now to do walls and other bits and pieces you might need! 🙂
